    I tried to install wondows xp SP3 using bootcamp on my macbook pro (new) and it goes fine up to the point of the actual installing. It goes to 28% and then freezes. I was using the FAT system with 32gb partitioned space, however I also tried it on all of the other modes but it doesnt work either and always stops at 28%. Can anyone help me?

    Have you tried another disc or burning a copy of this one on quality media?

    FAT32 must die. Any particular reason you don't want to go NTFS?

    I don't have another CD and I don't know how to do the other thing

    no partiular reason, it just seemed better in the description.

    How long have you given it at 28%?

    In order to make a copy of the disc, you will need a blank disc (For XP, a CD-R will do), Burn OS X http://burn-osx.sourceforge.net/Pages/English/home.html, and your Windows XP disc.

    Install and run Burn, insert your Windows disc and go to the copy tab. Follow directions.

    Ok thanks I'll give that a try.

    Will it work if the copy is not genuine?
