    I have just recieved my iMac and one of the things on my to-do list is get XP up and running so i can use Office to do work type stuff.

    I have downloaded Bootcamp 1.1.1 and unusally for me i looked a the read me :eek:

    It states :
    'Important: You must use a single-disc, full-install Windows XP CD that includes Service Pack 2. You cannot use an upgrade version of Windows XP, and you cannot install an earlier version of Windows XP and update it later to SP2. Do not use Windows XP Professional x64 Edition.

    I have my XP disc and i have a copy of SP2, can one of you kind souls point me in the right direction for instructions of how to make a single disc SP2 XP install so i can get some work done.

    Thanx in advance
