When I install windows XP the installation goes fine until the second half of the install where it reboots. When I take the windows CD out of the computer and try to continue the installation by pressing enter at the windows flag, the flag turns upside down and does nothing until you press enter again causing the computer to reboot. Has anyone else ran into this problem? I got it to work fine before but I forgot what I did.

Can I really be the only one with this problem?

im having the same problem, but the cause is that you need the drive in this order, efi, fat32, hfs. since i dont have my restore disks with me, i cant test it. the fat32 partition must be formatted through osx and there is no way to do it without the restore cd, the windows setup simply wont recognize it otherwise.

reformat and try again.
