    Attempting to start my MacBook Pro on the PC side, error message:

    "Windows cannot start because the following file is missing or corrupt:


    You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the original Setup CD-ROM.

    Select "r" at the first screen to start repair."

    I get the same message when I insert my MS Windows xp Home Edition CD as the boot disk.

    Task: Enable my MacBook Pro to boot on the Windows side. It worked at one time. OK I got my windows disk to boot the windows side. I keyed "r" to repair as instructed, then it asks which drive. I select "1" (C:) as the only option. The DOS prompt goes to windows. What can I do from there? Thanks.

    I fixed the PC bootup on my MacBook Pro. Just re-formatted the PC partition and re-installed Windows XP. Thanks anyway.

MacBook Pro won't boot at all

It's hard to say without more information. When you say it doesn't boot, does the screen come on at all? (the first thing that shows during a boot attempt is a gray screen). If the screen does come on, what does it show? Also what year is the macbook pro?

Try plugging your laptop into a monitor to see if the laptop boots up but the screen doesn't work.

If you have an image on the secondary monitor, sounds like the lcd on your laptop is defunct and should be repaired or replaced by an authorized Apple dealer or repair shop.

Either way you can take your MacBook into your nearest Apple Authorized repair shop and have them look into.

I have a mac book and two of the keys have popped off. Can they be put back on and How do I do that?

Placing back the keys is not possible manually except that you stick it, and thats the worst thing you would do. if you have an apple service center nearby, get it serviced by them as they need to open the lower case of the macbook to do that.
Btw is it Macbook or Macbook Pro? Because macbook pro has a unibody which can not easily get the keys back into position if they popped off.

You should only use Windows xp for running a program that is not yet available from Apple. There shouldn't be much reason to link to the net while in Windows. Also while in Windows you are wide open to any viruses that exist. Try getting your work done without getting on the net, then go back to your Apple format. There you are 99% free of viruses. … Still need to link onto the net let me know I will ask at our Apple Computer Club on Monday
