Boot Camp Frustration
Im trying to install windows on my macbook pro using boot camp beta
I burned the drivers, partitioned the drive for xp, got my new windows xp installation disc (for pc's without windows), put it in and began installation, setup launches and does various things and then says "setup is starting windows" then i get an error "session3_initialization failed".
I tried cleaning the disc and repartitioning the hdd a bunch of times but i cant get windows to launch past the "setup" (by the manual right before u select the C drive within windows installation)
Any advice would be appreciated, thanks
