    Wondering if anyone can help:

    1. New 11" macbook air. Set up partition for Windows XP SP2 using bootcamp. Prior to the Windows install I made the bootcamp driver install DVD per the instructions.

    2. Windows installed fine. In Windows, went to install the bootcamp drivers from DVD I made and get this message: "bootcamp requires that your computer is running windows 7" And then I can't install the drivers.

    Is there a limitation to running Windows 7 only? Am I doing something wrong?

    Windows XP is not officially supported in 2010 MBAs thus it may not work flawlessly. Have you seen this guide?
