    Um...first off, grammer is a friend, not an enemy.

    Now, is the computer rebooting when you try to boot into Windows, or right when you start up? If it is rebooting while starting up, hold down the option key, like right after the Mac start noise. This will make the Mac search for all bootable devices. It should then pop up with two hard drives, one with OSX and one with Windows. Then you can boot into Mac. Now if you did something to your boot.ini file, you might be foobard.

    You can try to boot it through Parallels and see what happens. If that dosn't work, then...you might have to reinstall Windows on the boot camp. I'm not sure though so don't hold me to it hehe. It might be possible to fix the boot.ini file but I'm not sure. Hope that helped you a little bit!

    Help me Help You

    I was willing to overlook the "IM-speek" for the Subject of the post, but then I opened it up the post and saw this huge block of text with no capitalization and no breaks between any paragraphs.

    When you're looking for help on any public forum, take a few minutes to make it look nicer, and you'll get more responses.

    Or insist on doing it this way and don't. Your choice.

    luomat, thanks for that pointer. I'm sure to find lots of use for it. And kudos to the folks who wrote it. It should be required reading for anyone before posting a question.
