    What do you mean by 'bootcamp disagrees'? What messages are you getting specifically?

    er sorry

    I'm trying to install Boot Camp on my laptop
    2gig RAM
    120gigs hard disk space, 80% free
    OSX 10.5.6

    I launch boot camp assistant, this message comes up:

    "Boot Camp Assistant cannot be used.

    You must update your computer's boot ROM firmware before using this setup assistant."

    I check my boot ROM code, it's
    Boot ROM Version: MB11.0061.B02

    I go to the apple site, download B03

    But as I run the file, I get this message:

    "Alert

    This computer does not need this update."

    Will your computer allow you to make other updates? e.g. security updates?

    Sounds like it might be a logic board problem. If your machine's still under warranty, take it to the apple store and have them have a look at it.

    You could try this if you want to, but I still recommend bringing it in.
