    I am having trouble installing windows SP2 using bootcamp. I purchased the Windows XP SP 2 software OEM and everytime it reboots it comes as disk error. I have deleted the partition and reinstalled but still same problem. Also i have noticed that it will never allow me to format the partition could that be the problem. Help will be really appreciated

    Are you getting this error during the installation procedure: SESSION3_INSTALLATION_FAILURE ?

    I hit this when installing Windows XP on my Macbook. Turns out it is a well known problem, and the solution is to make a copy of the Windows install disk and install from that instead. Don't ask me why it works, but it did for me.
