Talk about a
nightmare. Several Boot Camp users have logged on to Apple's discussion boards to share their horror story: The can't
boot back into Mac OS X. Forum user TChi wrote:
"It all worked fine until I wanted to start up OS X. Then the startup screen never progressed. I actually left and came back an hour later and it was still just the gear thing spinning around."
There are at least ten other posts there that describe the same issue involving XP on a MacBook Pro via Boot Camp. A number of fixes have been posted, but (as of my typing this) a one-size-fits-all solution is yet to be offered. The lessons to be learned here? A.) Boot Camp is beta software B.) Carbon Copy Cloner is your friend and C.) Being stuck with Windows is your punishment for installing Windows (that last one was a joke)!
Seriously, if you've had a similar experience and have found a fix, feel free to post it here (or at Apple's discussion board). Your fellow Mac users will thank you.
