    I just installed a new hard drive the Mac and restored from a TimeMachine backup. I also imaged an external drive before replacing the drive with the windows partion using disk utility. I then checked to make sure that it had all the windows files on the external drive then I replaced the drives. Once Mac was reinstalled a partion with the same size of the last Bootcamp was made and reimaged from the external drive. It worked great until startup where Windows XP wouldn't show up anymore!

    Any help would be very helpful! I heard rEFIt might work but would prefer not to go down that path.

    SPECS: 15'' MacBook Pro 2.4Ghz, Snow Leopard, 2Gigs of ram, 9600m NVidia.

    What happens when you boot up holding the option key? Does it show windows as an option?

    Does disk utility still show the windows partition?
