    I get this error:
    "unexpected error occurred (0); unable to upgrade firmware"

    They refer me to this site:

    I just bought this late 08 MBP and I have a bootcamp partition running Windows XP Pro 32Bit on a NTFS partition.

    Why is this so complicated? Macs have always been easy on me until this lol.

    They tell me to do a full reinstall but I don't understand how this will fix the problem since I don't know where this comes from.

    It says to go check my "Partition Map Scheme" and I have a "Master Boot Record". It says I need a "GUID_partition_scheme".

    How come I don't have a "GUID_partition_scheme"???

    Thanks, I'm lost.

    I have the same setup, older MBP (santa rosa). How did you install windows? By using the bootcamp wizard? Or did you try using other things as well? My disk utility shows the following:

    I opened bootcamp app, partitioned with 160GB for OS X and the rest for Windows (Approx 90Gb). Then, with the disk in, it restarted to the windows install. I chose to install on the partition called BOOTCAMP and reformated to NTFS quick. Then, it installed.
