    I have a Sr macbook. I understand the you need first installation disc of mac osx 10. Well still can't find it!! I tried searching /Volumes/Mac OS X Install Disc 1/System/Installation/Packages but no luck. Any advice?! this is really frustrating. Will someone give this noob a step by step walkthrough?

    Thanks,

    wat installation disk do you have??? it would only be on the leopard disks, if ur referring to the leopard disks then its probably hidden somwhere.

    what version of OSX are you running??? bootcamp ONLY comes with the new 10.5 (aka leopard), if your disks are 10.4 (aka tiger) then bootcamp wont be found.

    the beta version could be downloaded from apples website, i am unsure if it is still on there tho because the full version has been released.

    EDIT: nope the beta version of bootcamp has been deleted from apples website. you will need the leopard disks.

    ohhh ok i see.
    it would most likely be hidden then on the disk.
    download TinkerTool, this will allow you to see all the disks contents, it would be findable in there:)

    Well I tried to install it. I think my windows disc is bad. I booted windows and hit the 3rd drive and it said restarting computer after installing a whole bunch of windows files. than it keeps doing that over and over again after each restart!! Booting the same stuff making me overwrite the 3rd drive. What am I doing wrong or is my windows disc bad.

    I went through this last night and was confused for a bit...

    It's Boot Camp, not Bootcamp. Should be in the Applications/Utilities directory.

    Spotlight coundn't find "bootcamp", but "boot camp" was right there!
