    Default Back to XP

    Hello people, after I installed Snow Leopard on my wife's LG X120 she asked me to put back XP since OSX didn't work 100%.

    For some reason the installation cd stops when I have to choose where to install Windows saying that there's no Hard Drive available.

    Is this related to my previous installation of Snow Leopard (bootloader maybe) or something else?

    Did someone try and success the "back to xp" process? Or is like a friend told me "Once you go mac, you can't go back"?

    Thanks in advance

    Default Sure you can Change OS

    I used to be a Windows OS Only type of person but since I have my hackintosh things has change. Now I'm used to dual boot, having Windows 7 and Snow Leopard OS..... and Of course you can Re-install Windows XP or any Windows OS back. All you need is the OS Discs or if your Laptop has a Pre-install OS just set it up.

    Yah .. OSX uses the HFS file system which Windows don't recognize ... re partition your hard disk
