    Has anyone had any luck/even tried Boot camp on one of the new Penryn MBPs? I have it going, but whenever I try to run the driver install I get a blue screen of death when it attempts to do the wireless driver install. I reinstalled XP twice and I'm still getting the same result.

    I put in the recovery CD that comes with the laptop and it worked fine. Installed right away, no blue screen or anything.
    Fatflock222: With the new MBP, it doesn't come with a Leopard disc like the last MBP model, it only comes with the recovery CDs now because it already has Leopard loaded on there when you get it.

    I installed Vista via Boot Camp and it's working perfectly. I used the drivers that came with the recovery discs. Not any problems.

    I also had no problems installing. Just use the recovery cd for drivers.
