    I formatted my Windows XP partition for NTFS and you can't write to the windows partition from OS X.

    Is FAT a better choice? How does that work? I don't know much about it...

    I know FAT32 wont let you have a file on there that is greater than 4GB

    I use FAT32 so I can write to it. But FAT32 has drawbacks like limited partition size.

    From your own link:

    Windows 2000 and Windows XP can read and write to FAT32 filesystems of any size, but the format program on these platforms can only create FAT32 filesystems up to 32 GB. Thompson and Thompson (2003) write[4] that "Bizarrely, Microsoft states that this behavior is by design." Microsoft's knowledge base article 184006[3] indeed confirms the limitation and the by design statement, but gives no rationale or explanation. Peter Norton's opinion[5] is that "Microsoft has intentionally crippled the FAT32 file system."

    I tried running bootcamp on my Macbook, and everything went great until I had to enter a Product Key. Apparently, the XP Professional SP2 disk I wanted to use doesn't have an installs on it (though I was assured it did). Now, the computer is stuck in semi-installed Windows, so I have no way of ejecting the disk (Windows doesn't read the eject key until you install drivers, which comes AFTER the product key is entered).

    I can sort everything out if I can just get the disk out, but is that even possible without cracking the fucker open?

    Apple's instructions say you don't even get that option for a partition larger than 32 GB

    Try pressing and holding the spacebar while turning the system on.

    :confused: holding the mouse button down upon restart is the way to get a CD to eject automatically, AFAIK.

    I'm trying to use boot camp but it won't let me start the app. It says my firmware needs to be updated, but I have the SMC version 1.1f5, and if I download the update it tells me I don't need it. Everything seems to be up-to-date, but boot camp still won't work. Any ideas?
