I started installing Windows XP with boot camp assistant on Leopard. I decided to stop after a few setup windows, and cancelled out of the installation process. After restarting I was then confronted with a black screen reading "Non-system disk Press any key to reboot" However, pressing any key does nothing. I ejected the Windows XP dvd and rebooted with the Leopard install disk, but the same screen keeps reapearing. Someone please help!! I do have a backup on Time Machine on an external, but I need to be able to start up in Leopard first, right?

Hold down the Option key when you restart the computer. You should then be able to select the startup partition (OS X or BootCamp). Obviously, choose OS X.
