    I know how it feels...I've had that issue for more than 3 weeks now and finally found the answer.

    Unplug your mouse from your keyboard. I did that on mine and for the first time I could finally go up and down and select which partition I wanted to install XP on! Enjoy. :apple:

    The one that threw me during installing XP in BootCamp was to insert the Mac provided DVD on the PC side, and a auto install should run off the DVD to install drivers needed to enhance the PC environment.

    However, in BootCamp XP, there used to be a grey diamond in the bottom right corner that would bring up BootCamp options and it's gone on my Laptop, but present on my Desktop version. Weird?
