Hi, Finally managed to get XP Pro installed (full retail) in bootcamp. A couple of things: Firstly, having successfully installed sp3, it is now failing every time it tries to install 10 new updates it has downloaded. It makes no difference if I do it automatically, or manually. I've tried all the fixed I can source, i.e. Dial-A-Fix and microsoft's own fixes. Secondly, I don't recall having to activate this copy, and there is no activation notice. It was a sealed, genuine copy I bought off ebay - box, disc and packaging all seem to be authentic. Anyone else not had to activate their copy?
