    Does anyone know how to get this installed on Windows XP Professional x64? The OS itself reads as Windows Server 2003 which the installer thinks is an improper OS and won't install. I can't do compatability mode since the file is a MSI not EXE file.

    Never mind... I hacked the MSI file to make it work.

    I only have the boot camp installer for 2.0.1 (MacBook Air)... not sure if it'll work. Its at home also, so I'll need to get it after work and post it here.

    If you're worried that the newer boot camp menu might not work or something, just PM me the version of your BootCamp64.msi and I'll make it work for Windows XP x64.

    File works fine... and no it's not a keylogger he was joking.

    I have same problem I've had on other variations of Bootcamp, it doesn't see the Mac OS X partition, so the only OS it's sees is the 64-bit Windows partition. Any workarounds for that other than booting with option key? A problem may be I installed XP 64x on a separate hard drive? Does it only work if the Mac OS is on the same drive?
