    I installed my copy of windows today, I'm running Boot Camp on a Macbook, and when I try to install the Mac Drivers, Windows crashes to the blue screen of death. Now, when I try to boot windows, I can't do anything because the mouse, trackpad, and keyboard are non-responsive... does anyone know what could possibly be going on, or how to fix this?

    Thanks in advance.

    For those of you interested, I have found a solution to the problem.

    Apparently there is some sort of incompatibility with the Apple Keyboard drivers and Windows. So, when you are installing the boot camp drivers, SKIP any installation that involves "Apple Keyboard Support", but install everything else, and it should work fine. The drivers that say "Apple Keyboard Trackpad" should also be fine to install.

    You won't have some useful features, like the eject and volume keys, but everything else, including the trackpad and right-click should work fine.

    Hope this helps some of you.

    Did you install Windows XP with SP2? I've been able to install the keyboard drivers in Windows XP SP2 and Vista.

    Yes, I did. Initially, I had it working, but I reinstalled Windows because I needed a bigger partition, and I started getting that error with the keyboard drivers.
