    So i've installed the dreaded xp. Install went fine and I installed the drivers.

    Once coming to boot up holding alt only macintosh shows. I have reinstalled windows 2 times now and the problem still exists.

    The only way I can get into windows is to boot to leopard and then restart selecting windows (from startup disk).

    Also on a sidenote is there any new or 3rd party drivers (such as the omega) that support the x3100?

    This is a bug with Boot Camp on Leopard that many people (myself included) seem to be having.

    Someone claims converting the partition to NTFS in Windows will do the trick to make the icon appear. I'm not very much into doing that because it means you can read the contents of WinXP from Leopard.

    Thread on Apple discussions:

    Hopefully Apple will fix this bug soon, its really annoying.
