    I am getting a no boot drive error. I installed boot camp then removed it. Now my iMac acts like the boot loader is gone. If I hold down the option key when booting I can select the Macintoch HD, the only choice showing, and it will boot ... but that is the only way to get it to boot.

    Thanks for any help...:eek:

    After it's booted, you may need to remind it to boot from that volume by re-selecting the Start Up Disk in System Preferences... tried that yet?

    Just went there and tried to do that however it is the only choice... the winxp boot partition is gone but something got injured in the going.

    Backing up iTunes right now, just in case, then I will put your suggestion into effect and try to boot again. Then I will try a archive and install, I wonder how one recovers and entire system with TimeMachine?

    Thank you... Van
