Several weeks ago, I faced an issue with my bootcamp windows XP partition and my iMac wasn't able to start from it, when I chose from startup screen. So, I decided to try to insert my Windows XP setup CD and launched bootcamp again. I saw the CD icon and was able to choose to boot from it. In fact, it rally booted on it and started the setup process as I thought, proposing me to Repair an exiting installation. That's what I did and it worked very well, as I was able again to start on my Windows XP hard drive partition and work with it.

Today, I faced the same issue, with the difference that I can't boot from the CD anymore: bootcamp stays frozen on the bootcamp screen.


Could anybody help, please?
