    Hey guys,
    I've installed windows XP on my Mac. I can't make an internetconnection, use bluetooth and it doesn't recognize my graphic card (i tried installing a game)! I'm i doing something terribly wrong?
    I also have the Vista installation disk here, should i just install that and that'll solve the problems? If so, how do i uninstall XP?
    thanks

    Have you inserted the OS X DVD and installed the drivers needed to run Windows? Be sure you have done that.

    Just in case you ever want to try again, yes, you could have done that then, and reading the instructions is a good idea.

    Disk 1. I take it the OP is talking about the disks that came with his Mac, not the Leopard retail disk.
