    I'm having some problems installing windows xp on my macbook. I partitioned the hard drive and the bootcamp drive shows up n my desktop, but when i try and install windows and partition selection screen comes up, it doesn't show any other partitions. Any suggestions?

    Did you partition in Disk Utility or did you do it properly using Boot Camp Assistant like you're supposed to? Please consult this for step-by-step instructions on the install process. Unless you deviate from its steps or have some far-out configuration it won't fail you.

    JediMaster,
    You must have a SP2 or SP3 windows XP to perform the installation,
    I tried with an old disk and the same problem happened to me,
    I could not see the bootcamp partition, only the mac one


    oups, VERY old message i see
