    Hi:
    I have never owned a Mac and I am terrfied, bought and MacBook 1.1
    Intel Core Dua 2GHz 2 GB RAM; running Mac OS X Verision 10.4.7 and installed Boot Camp 1.1.
    All was fine and dandy until I got to the part to install Winwods XP SP2, ye s I have the right CD Versoin. On the Blue screen where I am supposed to click Enter to continue installation or ESC or F3 to Quit, my MAc Book keyboard stops responding and I can no even direct the program to install Win XP the partition set up by Bootcamp. I have set up a 32 GB partition.

    Any help weill be appreciated thank you

    IIRC the solution is to unplug any and all external USB devices during the install...

    1. You may have to hit fn when trying to push F3 or F8
    2. There is on the iMac, I don't have a MacBook or MBP though.

    Do you have an external USB keyboard you could try?
