    New Mac user here (longtime PC user), just purchased a refurb. classic MBP/2.4/2GB a few days ago. I tried to install Xcode from the 2nd enclosed MBP DVD yesterday and during the process there was a hard crash (ie. the mouse stopped moving and I had to shut the machine off). At the time I was multitasking (ie. browsing, viewing files) while Xcode was being installed. Is it preferable to not do anything while the MBP is installing a package from the DVD drive?

    Now my Core2Quad PC (purchased in Jan., running XP) hasn't had a hard crash yet and here I have one on the first full day I experiment with the MBP. Should this be concerning (re:hardware quality)? Here's the error msg I received (upon the folowing bootup) - does it give any clues as to what the cause was?

    Yes it was a clean install (MBP shipped with OS X 10.5.2, started to use on Friday and I upgraded to 10.5.5 on Saturday and also installed Bootcamp/XPfterwards). I was able to install Xtools this morning from the CD fine and I believe it's working (am able to code with FreePascal now).

    I hope it doesn't crash again...keeping my fingers crossed. Are there any Burnin-type tests I should do to test the system's stability (prior to the 14day return period?)?

    You may want to try an updated version of Xcode. Apple regularly releases updates for it that can be downloaded at the Apple Developer Connection (http://developer.apple.com/mac/). You will need to register a free account there, but once you do that you will be able to download the latest version of Xcode.
