    I've just got my Macbook and I'm now trying to get XP to work.

    I got to the point where is says to Press Enter or R or F3. I tried pressing enter, about 20 times. I rebooted, it went into trying to install again, and I had the same problem.

    What should I do?

    (Note: The partion for XP isn't showing up on my mac. Is it supposed to? The space is gone that I allocated for).

    Is there a clever way to regain the space that I lost b/c of my partioning? I still cannot see the partion on OS X.

    First, is the Windows partition a SP2? Second, delete the partition simply by running the Boot Camp Assistant again. Third, try and reinstall, or wait for Crossover to come out. ;)

    SP2 is needed.

    If that doesnt solve your problem, plug in an external usb keyboard.
