    so I've tried a few times already to install XP using Boot Camp and everytime I can only get so far. I install Boot Camp and then nothing happens. I open the assist after downloading and it never prompts me to do anything. I'm at a loss. My firmware is 1.1f5 ...everything seems to be in line but if anyone can shed some light that would be fantastic. I recently downloaded the trial of Parallels and that's prompted me to try Boot Camp again bc 80 bucks is kinda steep for something that I could essentially get for free (minus the convenience, I know). Any help is appreciated. :hsd:

    This was it...I just assumed that Boot Camp would prompt me but it didn't. I got it installed...all but the driver's cd. The cd found something wrong with my ATI card and then froze so that I had to reboot and that left me with no mouse and keyboard so I said fuck it and deleted the partition. Besides, installing it made me see why I made the switch...damn Windows is ugly haha.

    Thanks for the tips guys :bigthumb:

    that drivers CD is REALLY important for it to run right.
