    Having issues installing XP on my MBP. I've set aside a 150gig partition for XP and I formatted it NTFS during the install but after it copies over the files and reboots to continue the installation, it gives me a HAL.DLL file missing error message. I removed the partition and tried again and this time, I got a "boot disk error" message. Windows 7 had installed just fine using boot camp but I'd rather use XP for the time being. Anyone else have this issue?

    Could be bad install disk :dunno: I have gotten missing file errors before and it turned out to be the dvd drive just didn't like the disk.
