    Does anyone have experience solving the problem of trying to install Windows to bootcamp, but the MBP keyboard not working? I have an install CD that has four different versions of Windows on it. When I boot up the CD I get 4 lettered options, A-D, and I need to be able to select one to install Windows. But the keyboard is completely unresponsive.

    I have also tried an external USB keyboard and that did not work.

    Any ideas?

    Keyboard does not work

    I have had exactly the same problem. I have been trying to Install Windows XP using bootcamp but was unable to as the keyboard was completely dead. Perhaps, it has something to do with SP2. I had installed Vista before and it worked just fine. But now, with XP it just does not work. Any thoughts anyone?

    Did you guys ever find a solution?

    I just got my new MBP, the KB and TouchPad is completely unresponsive when trying to get into xp.

    Edit:
    I found the solution -(can't remember where)

    I had to format the drive ntfs.
    That's weird, but it worked.
