    OK. I have partitioned the drive (10GB) and Im at this screen:

    *Insert Windows XP Home Edition or Pro CD w/ SP2; start installation button*

    I put in the windows disk, and wait untill it shows up on the desktop, then click "start installation"

    After I click that, I get this:

    No installer CD found


    The CD has no scratches, just open from the box. Any idea whats going on here? :confused:

    It's not one of the CDs the installer recognizes.

    Try rebooting your Mac with the CD in the drive and hold down option as you boot. Select the CD and proceed as "usual".

    If it's not actually an SP2 disc you will run into problems, otherwise you should be OK.
