Hello all! Please forgive me if this is a repeat (probably an obvious one at that), but I've been up all night trying to make a horrible nightmare go away... one that involves my mac taking the swan dive because of my decision to install windows and my stupid inability to make sure i actually HAD the RIGHT disc. long story short, i thought i had a FULL version of windows xp home sp2.... turns out it was ONLY the sp2 update... and the mac didn't like that very much... and then it thought it was a windows machine with nothing to load... panic ensued.. then insanity... then i took it apart, pried the CD out... found my mother's FULL version of windows xp professional sp2 and let it install that JUST so that i could finally see the shinny happiness that is OSX running on my WORKING mac. heart attack, i tell you. but i digress... i STILL want to install windows on my computer... and i DO have professional on right now, but it wont activate for some reason... so instead of toying with THAT mess for 30 days... id rather just install MY version of Home, since i own the product key to it, but the problem is that it's sp1... i tried to do my research and i keep reading about slipstreaming, but im very confused on how its done and/or if it actually WORKS to install windows on a mac (i really DON'T want to have to sit here prying the case apart again to pull the CD out manually...). i realize that this may be a really STUPID question... but seeing as how im not computer savvy at ALL, i thought maybe some kind soul would have pity on me and help me out... so is there anyone out there that can give me a REALLY DUMBED DOWN step by step on how to slipstream sp2 onto my mac without (almost) destroying it. again. thanks!
