Load gray disc 1 and then shut down computer. Power back up and press option key. Select the start up disc and press enter or the right icon arrow key. Wait for the thing to load. Then at the top select the Disk Utility and then select your hard drive at the left panel. Then select the button that says repair disk permissions. Then select the button that says repair disk. After that restart the computer using the hard drive and not the disk.

Next step is this tedious process is shut down computer. Now press power button and immediately press at the same time the option key, and the apple icon key next to it, and the letter P and the letter R. Now wait until you hear 3 bong sounds from the speakers and then you can let go.

Next step is to select system preferences, select accounts, select your account, select login in items and select everything in the box. Now press the - icon to remove them. Don't stress your not removing the actual programs. Your just telling the laptop not to load them upon startup.

Next step, you need to go into disk utilities and partition the hard drive into 2 sections. 1 section will load Mac OS X and the other section will load Windows 7.

Finally, you should remove your RAM and re-seat them as sometimes that causes long startups. Also, check the about my mac to make sure both RAM chips are recognized and working. Also, upgrade to the max RAM allowable to speed up startup times and upgrade to 7200 RPM hard drive instead of your 5400 RPM.

Hope this helps you. Cheers old chap.

I am not a techie and I bought two Canon HV20 cameras for a small video project we are doing in Florida after reading some sensational reviews. We took the first batch of tapes to our "producer" who...'s available from a reseller that works with Canon. If you can give me the actual model number from that unit, and perhaps a serial number, we'll be able to proceed.

OTOH, that question about the Canon and Final Cut, that's usual. Those folks don't even go to the same conventions or seminars.

Digital madness.

Dear Sir I am installaing WIn Xp Professional 64 bit on Intel motherbaord DH 61 WW with 8 GB corsair ram and after the boot hardaware error occurs and its ask to check the hardware or viruses...

The motherboard has nothing to do with your problem. Its your processor it has to be a 64 bit processor. If you don't during the installation you will get an hardware error. Your windows 7 must of been a 32bit or aka 86x platform. So put windows 7 back on (recommended) or try windows xp pro 32bit
