That would probably work, but I'm not completely sure.

I set my Mac partition active, and now it boots Mac automatically after countdown! =D
I can still boot in Windows though.

Jacksont123, thats the same exact error that I get dont know if it's due to the video card or dvd drive any ideas?

It's most likely the video card because my dvd drive works fine, when it comes to reading and writing.

2. I also have the issue with the DVD player (as Jacksont123 does), althought it doesn't bother me as much -- this Dell will be used by my mom for office work.3. It boots into the Darwin bootloader right away and into the correct partition.I believe I've had a problem with #3 before, because I have partitioned the disk from the XP installer (including partition later formatted for Mac OS X) and I believe something in the partition record was not what the Darwin bootloader would expect to boot from there automatically. Now that I have only created the first small partition for XP within the XP installer and then "repartitioned" the drive from the Mac OS X installer I don't have this problem. Haven't tried to boot into XP from the Darwin bootloader tho, maybe I've lost an ability to do so.

I don't mind the DVD player problem either, I can just boot into Windows to do the stuff that Mac is unable to do. ;)From what I read in #3, you basically set the Mac partition active and it boots into mac after the countdown? I could do that, but I'm also afraid it might not boot into XP... Could you check if it boots into XP for you?
