    Because Im getting tired of constant BSOD when playing my games, im contemplating doing an re-install of xp but bare boned. by that I mean just installing xp sp2 and just update sound and video drivers. will i be able to do it? do i need to manually install the wireless card or will windows pick it up?

    Ive tried updating drivers and removing known apple drivers with issues, but in the end i cant get away from BSOD, its getting very frustrating :mad:

    You haven't thought of perhaps identifying the cause of the BSOD and solving the issue instead? Tell us what system you have, the text that displays on the BSOD screen, and the version of the Boot Camp software you are using. Perhaps we can help before ditching the software as a last-resort.

    If everything was working fine with XP SP2 but things went haywire when you installed Service Pack 3, could Boot Camp 2.1 installation be in order? You will want to run the .exe right after completing installation of Windows and the Apple drivers on the Leopard disc, but BEFORE updating to Service Pack 3.
