    Hi guys

    Basically I'm trying to install XP, via Boot Camp.

    I've followed the steps for Boot Camp e.g. Create Partition (i created a 25GB partition), then inserted the XP installation disk, as Boot Camp told me.

    However, on start-up, the XP disk asks me to select which option I want to choose; e.g."A - Install Windows XP Professional SP2". It then asks me to choose what I want and press enter BUT the XP installation disk is not recognizing the keyboard.

    Do any of you knowledgeable people know how to solve this problem? I wouldn't be installing XP if Microsoft did a Mac version of Flight Simulator.

    By the way, I'm using the built-in keyboard on my MacBook, and trying to install XP Pro off my MSDN disk.

    Do you have access to a USB keyboard/mouse?
