Alrite, I have searched enough before opening up thi thread, so I humbly request ppl here to assist me in my misery. All I am trying to do is install windows xp sp3 in boot camp. So I created a partition 32gb. start bootcamp assistant, slipped in the windows xp sp3 cd ( slipstreamed version). So after a days effort installed xp on the the 32 gb partition. NOw I boot into windows, inserted the mac install disk which has windows support drivers, double click it, it threw error message, windows installer must be updated. Since I dont have any n/w drivers, I download installer 3.1 on another pc, and installed it on this mac. Now when I dbl click the cd drive, it says, Boot camp needs windows xp sp2 or vista. But I have sp3. Searched a while, found that i probably need to install bootcamp 2.1. My laptop is under a month old, still I assumed it has bootcamp 2.0 and downloaded 215mb bcupdatexp.exe file from apple support website. Now when I double click this file, nothing happens at all. No window comes up, it just sits there. I check the processes in task manager it shows up there, but vanishes after 5 -6 secs. Now I manually installed the drivers for some hardware from the cd, just by dbl clicking the applications files in drivers folder. But some are still missing. Also sometimes on boot up it shows some dlls couldnt be found eg navcpl.dll. Shutdown gets stuck sometimes and starts behaving wierd. In windows update it found sp2 as an update, that made no sense. So I started installing that, after about 11 min, it throws an error saying I need additional 4 mb of space to install. I have 28 GB free on that partition. It doesnt go any further. I would highly appreciate if someone can really help me out here.. as I am loosing patience. How am I supposed to solve this issue? How to update the boot camp? How to get the hardware working properly? Any help will be highly appreciated. My laptop : Macbook pro 13" , 2.26 GHz, 2GB RAM, 160 GB HD.
