    I have two issues.

    1. I have Windows XP in .iso format on my harddrive, and I want to make a bootable DVD, so I can use that to boot. I've tried using Toast6 but that doesn't work. Are there any apps I can use to create a bootable DVD? Or can I just either use OSX or just burn the .iso file to a DVD-R?

    2. Basically, I'm using a MBP, I try to open Boot Camp, but it says I can't use Boot Camp until my firmware is updated. My firmware IS updated for sure, I checked about 10 times. Any help?

    Thanks so much, your time is appriciated!

    To burn the iso file, go to Applications > Utilities > Disk Utility. Select the iso file in the left column, and hit burn (top left). Microsoft recommends choosing a very low write speed to ensure accuracy.


    What version of firmware does your MBP have?

    Hey thanks for helping. I have MBP 1.0 firmware.

    But when I burn the iso file to a DVD, will it be bootable?

    EDIT: I think I figured out the firmware issue.

    The most recent firmware version for the MacBook Pro is 1.0.1 - you can download it Here.

    Yes, it will. :)
