    You need a physical CD.

    It's easy to burn a iso in Mac OS X.

    Double Click To Mount Your .ISO

    Open Disk Utility (Applications --> Utilities)

    Click on the image on the left sidebar and click burn

    done.

    happy pirating ^^

    Trouble too..

    hi everyone,

    Im having a problem with Bootcamp too. I guess my dvd/cd drive has problem or weak, it cant recognize or fail in reading some files so my mbp cant completed the windows installing.
    Ive used my pc desktop to create a iso file of XP pro sp2 cd. Can I use this file to boot instead of a physical CD? Or using any software to visual a physical CD drive ?

    Thank you.

    You removed your post. That's dumb.

    The vast majority use .ISOs for piracy. Thus, piracy.

    Not always about piracy

    I reject the implication that anyone who is attempting to use an ISO image is a pirate. In fact, I signed up for this forum with the sole intention of stating the case otherwise.

    Microsoft themselves distributes licensed copies of ALL of their products in ISO format. Business users who have access to MVLS (microsoft volume licensing services) can download these ISOs at will. This is how I found this site. I was looking for a way to install XP on bootcamp without needing to waste a cd by burning it.

    While I appreciate the information provided, to imply that everyone who needs it is a thief is appalling. Good day.

    removed because I forgot to "quote" the original poster. I wanted them to get an email to know someone replied to them.

    You say the vast majority, but I would argue that it might be only a small majority. I agree that piracy is probably the number one use of ISO images but does that mean that EVERY use of an iso should be classified that way? By that logic, anyone who uses the internet should also be labeled a spammer considering that 80% of all internet traffic is spam mail.

    And 67% of all statistics are made up, as well. ;)

    Isn't that the same thing when it comes down to it? Putting aside all of the politics of the software industry and the fact that everything is ridiculously overpriced. If the owner says you have to pay to use it, and you use it without paying.. is that not stealing?

    Well no, it's breach of copyright to be precise. Whether one considers that equally reprehensible is another matter.

    Ok so back to the original question, I swear i saw a "install from iso' option in bootcamp when installing my windows. Try clicking "install later" after the partitioning
