    So I got through the cannot partition thing by repairing the disk (by booting to the 10.5 disk)

    but now, after booting up to the windows disk, and running through the installer... I get to the "windows needs to restart to complete, hit enter to restart"

    but after it restarts... it says click any key to boot from CD...

    and then it says "disk error, press any key to restart."

    I've gone through boot camp, unpartitioned, and then repartitioned and restarted, but still get the same error.

    I tried 3 times..... the XP install won't install on FAT... I had to click the "Format as NTSF" before it would work.
