    I got the new 2.33 core 2 duo and for some reason I'm running into a lot of problems with the whole bootcamp crap. I need only one program from Windows so I would love for this to work. Here are some of the problems I have ran into...

    1. I will personalize OSX and then once I turn it off and then back on all of my settings are lost. It goes back to the default. All of my programs are still in Applications but everything else is lost... Even files on my desktop.

    2. Windows will restart randomly with the blue screen of death.. Starts back up like nothing.

    (It also will keep all of my preferences and files)

    3. I installed all of the given drivers, but for some reason I can't find the wireless driver. I don't know if I could. I am able to plug in a LAN line though.

    4. It feels a little laggy at times, something I wouldn't expect from a C2D MBP

    Any help would really be appreciated.. Thanks
