    Okay so i tried both windows vista and XP. I make a partition everything goes well but, when i clicl Start Installation it tells me that "The installer CD could not be found. Insert your Windows CD and wait a few seconds for the disc to be recognized." I tried the Vista and XP before on the Boot Camp Beta b4 Leopard was released and it worked now whatever i do it doesn't work. Any Ideas??? I really need this to work!!

    I tried burning it again to see if it'd work and it didn't!! :(

    Might want to try turning on the computer, holding Option down and selecting the to boot from the Windows CD. Just remember when the computer reboots you need to manually boot it from the Windows partition via the Option key.

    When I've tried it, I also tried formatting the partition to FAT32, with the intent of sharing data between OS's. However, it wouldn't boot for me without being formatted as NTFS.

    Just a gotcha for you to watch out for.
