    try to install mac OS or windows xp again by changing the BIOS settings at the startup.

I want to be install a windows 7 on my mac < but say to me this """The startup disk must be formatted as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume or already partitioned by Boot Camp Assistant for...


The first part of the message is saying that you can't have a start up hard drive that is already partitioned. Did you try launching Boot Camp Assistant? If you look in your "Applications" folder and open the "Utilities" folder, it's there. I believe Boot Camp Assistant will create the partition you need.

Can i install windows xp on Laptop Hp 630


I'm quite sure you can install windows xp on your current laptop, but computer specifications do matter. Anyway, this is how you would do it:

1) Insert the windows xp cd or dvd and restart your computer.

2) When starting up your computer, you should get a screen with the manufactorer's logo. There usually is a bit of text in one of the corners of the screen that sais which key to press to go to the "boot menu" (unless you're on an apple computer at the moment, in that case google for "Boot Camp windows xp".)



3) Press this key while you see the screen mentioned above, and you will see a menu in which you'll have to navigate with the arrow keys.

4) As this is different for various manufacturers, look around in the menu a bit until you find something along the lines of "boot from cd"

5) Make sure you activate this, and restart your computer.

6) Now your computer should start up from the windows xp CD.

7) Follow the instructions of the installation.

8) Repeat step 2-4 and deactivate the boot from cd.

9) Done. You should have windows xp installed on your machine.

How can i install window xp on my apple mac book


with a legal copy of windows xp and it must be a windows xp with service pack 2 or higher.
run the boot camp assistant tool in the applications folder.
it will allow you to specify how many GB's you want to allocate for windows.
minium amount of space required is 30GB's to do a install.
follow the directions and make sure you install to the boot camp partition.
after windows is installed put the osx CD in to install the drivers for windows.

Black Screen on Dell Dimension 3100 on boot up. Running Windows XP Home Edition. This happen before you get to the Windows login screen.


If you have a black screen it means the system cannot boot into your master boot record, you should reinstall the system using a bootable Windows XP CD, and perform a repair,( not the Repair Console).

When youre in the Windows XP Wizard screen, press enter , accept the license agreement, and then it will check for existing windows xp partitions, press R to repair the existing Windows XP installation, and wait til it gets your system restored.

SYSTEM SLOW TO LOAD, OVERHEATING AND CANT GET DRIVER


you can hold down the option key while you start up the computer. It will give you a grey screen and give you choices of startup systems... Choose the Mac OS and see if the start up is quicker. Sounds like the windows xp setup isn't working properly. I'd think elimination of the existing pc partition on the hard drive while running in mac mode and then running Boot Camp according to apple's instructions. Boot camp is on the Leopard OS disc and will get your computer ready to instal windows xp with an authorized xp disc. After it's up and running in windows xp, you can reinsert the mac os disc while running windows and the drivers will be installed for you...it works great... Plus you can download a copy of apple's bonjuer software and it will help you set up your printers to work on your mac as well.... Good luck and let me know if you need more help... KEN

The drivers for XP are on the official OS X Leopard DVD. Install this when running XP and then run the Apple Drivers Set up on the disk.

BOOT CAMP SEEMS TO BE UNSTABLE WITH MY APPLICATIONS


This is a not a Boot Camp - but a cheap way to get Fusion V.2 which is the best run-XP-and-OSX-both-at-one-time program.
1.  Do NOT use Parallels software b/c it is slow, clunky, and a memory hog - this is experience speaking :)
2.  get a USED copy of VMWare Fusion VERSION 1 (this is not the newest version - but hold on!) from ebay/Amazon whatever - but don't pay over 20.00 (I paid 17.95 shipping included)!
3.  Install the older (version 1)  VMWare Fusion and then go to the VMWare Fusion website to get a free download of Version 2.  They offered this free to all owners of version 1.
Now something to think about.  When I had VMWare Fusion 1 on my machine, it literally took 3 seconds to load Windows XP (and some people wonder why I have a Mac!).  Upon installing version 2, it takes 10 seconds - and I do not know why!
BTW - make sure this free update is still available http://www.vmware.com/products/fusion/

This works b/c a lot of surplus V1's are being sold cheap.  It is s totally legit option b/c the company is offering to any legit owners of version 1.

How i install window xp in macbook with preinstalled os x


Boot camp and/ or Parallels. You need software to create a virtual, bootable partition. The version of windows you install cannot be OEM, or a transferred license. I would recommend LINUX instead of windows XP. It's free and stable and like OS X, based on UNIX.
