    Hi. I had a new Intel based Mac Mini, and I tried to install windows XP, after install bootcamp, burn the mac Drivers disk, and create the partition the mac mini restarts, but when the computer restarts with the windows CD, apears a cursor blinking and doesnt do any more, the windows installation doesnt start. I believed that something goings wrong whith the windows CD, but thats impossible because 2 hours before i installed Windows XP in a MacBook with the same disk.

    Ive checked the firmware version an is installed the last one (1.3f4) and others requirements, but i didnt fount the trouble!

    I hope someone can help me. :confused:

    You might just want to try burning a copy of that disc on a CD-R, and try installing from that. There have been some reports of finicky optical drives not recognizing particular discs... (Maybe it's something to do with the hologram on the Windows discs...)
