    I have just installed Windows XP Pro 32-bit using Boot Camp. This was done on a Mac mini, Core 2 Duo 2GHz running Leopard.
    It all worked fine, until I have to install the Windows drivers. I boot into Windows and insert the Leopard Install Disc. Nothing happens. I open the disc in "My Computer"... and Windows can't see any files at all. I've researched a little and some people have a similar issue when running "MacDrive"... but I'm not. This is a fresh install of Windows!
    Any ideas?

    have you enabled autoplay in the control panel? try right clicking the disc and choose explore and double click on the autoplay file.

    Is the disc a backup copy?

    Other people on here have had the same problem with backed up Leopard DVDs because the Mac can't see the Windows data on the disc when copying.

    I had no problem to install XP SP2 on partitioned HD with Boot Camp. All I did is to follow direction, Leopard had all drivers. BTW it was OEM version of XP, that I got from local computer store with 2Gig RAM purchase. I needed RAM anyway.:)
