    Hello there, sorry if this has been mentioned before. Here goes, anyway.

    My friend just received his new C2D MacBook. He brought it to me so I can install boot camp and Win XP. When I began partitioning the Hard Drive. I got an error message regarding the hard drive.

    I did a disk utility check and the message that I got is attached.

    What should I do? Please, help.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Ah yes. You have to do it boot off of the DVD not while in the local OS X. :D

    Now you tell me. :D

    Finished installing win xp.

    Finished Installing drivers.

    Restart.

    Followed by 8 (E-I-G-H-T) restarts.

    Keyboard & mouse not working + Other non-working drivers.

    Log in Mac OS X.

    Remove Win XP partition.

    Begin fresh installation.

    Now I am formatting.

    Wish me luck guys. :(

    Slipstream your XP disc so you don't need that wave of Windows updates.

    How do I "Slipstream" my XP disc? What do you mean by Slipstream.

    Pardon me, but I am an idiot on these things. I bought an MBP to get rid of XP altogether. :D
