Boot Camp: Start up to black screen after installing Windows
Boot Camp, Microsoft Windows XP or Vista
Your Mac may start up to a black screen after installing Windows XP or Vista using Boot Camp.
Begin by reseting PRAM. If resetting PRAM does not resolve your issue, reset the SMC:
- Resetting SMC on a MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, or Macbook.
- Resetting SMC on a Mac Pro.
- Resetting SMC on an iMac or Mac Mini.
