    You can't use a slipstreamed WinXP SP2 disc. You need a real WinXP with SP2 disc.

    :confused::confused::confused:
    I used a slipstreamed version of XP installed via Boot Camp; works fine. Did Apple make that change in the final version of BC? I'm still using Tiger and public beta 1.3.:eek::eek::p

    You made a boot DVD? A slipstreamed version should fit easily on a regular CD. Try booting with a copy burned on a CD.
    The most important part is the ISOBuster section of the instructions. If you mess that up, you won't get a boot disc.

    Hmm. Sorry for the misinformation. I could have sworn I read somewhere that slipstreamed discs don't work.
