    Hi,

    I've a problem with my macbook pro, i've installed the windows xp sp2 and everything seams to be working fine, but when i insert the leopard's dvd windows doesn't read it. is rear cuz i've downloaded a bootcamp for windows and in the list of the boot camp i does appear.

    but by internet explorer i cannot find the drivers i really need windows cuz i've a couple of systems in asp. or as well if you can tell me if there is any simple way to install iis under leopard please do it. other wise i rather install windows cuz is simplest, or at least should be.


    please help me on this i've done a lot of things like create a dmg of the dvd copy it to the windows partition and open it with ultra iso and extract the files and i cannot find them any where, could you tell me where are them... please and is hard to find cuz i don't have the right click.... as well if there is any program that could month the dmg as a dvd like power iso, cuz i've try to convert it to iso and it doesn't work.. or any program that can conver this to an iso.


    any other sugestion or tell me please how can i do this. maybe my dvd is damage cuz i've lost the original and downloaded it as a torrent. but is rear cuz when i insert it under leopar it seams to work properly.

    Please help me

    thanks a lot ..

    Regards
    Cesar

    Use Boot Camp that is already installed on Mac OS 10.5 under Applications > Utilities to partition your drive for one Mac OS and one Windows partition, then install Windows and then you should be able to use the Leopard DVD to install all drivers.

    I'd bet that the problem is because you used a torrent. Either it didn't burn correctly or there is something else wrong with it.

    I wouldn't trust an OS X torrent with the trojans found in iWork and PS CS4. You never know what you might get.
