    I somehow had a lot of problems when installing Boot Camp into my computer. I finally managed to put my Xp partition on my Alum. Macbook 2.4Ghz. It stated for me to put in my OS X DVD in order to install the necessary drivers for the Xp in order for the internet to work ect. ect.
    However, when i put in the disk it asks me that i need to update the xp in order to install the rest of the drivers.

    however, again i have no internet because i do not have the drivers.
    When i click "Do not update" it saids "Setup cancelled"

    If i click "Update" then it saids something i do not understand and quits anyway.

    How am I supposed to update the computer to install drivers when i NEED those drivers to update my computer.....

    Any suggestions are helpful...thanks!

    Let us know what is says exactly when you click Update. That will give a better understanding to what is going on.

    Why can't you run an ethernet cable to your laptop?
    Are you using xp sp2 or higher?

    When you click the "setup"
    a pop-up appears.
    It saids...
    "This package requires a newer version of the windows installer. Do you want to update the version of the windows installer on your system?"

    When Clicked 'Yes'
    It saids "The required resource 'UPDATE' is missing." and quits

    When Clicked 'No'
    It saids "Setup was cancelled."

    hope that helps..

    yes it is Xp sp2
