    Hi everyone, I had bootcamp working yesterday, I was playing COD on my Mac. And now today after the update (10.6.5) I'm unable to boot into bootcamp. When my Mac starts up I hold down the option key, choose my windows partition and then it freezes up. Anyone know how to fix this?

    When you say it freezes, how long are you waiting for the Windows side to boot?

    I've moved to the update on the MacBook and iMac both, and on both of them the Bootcamp partition starts perfectly.

    I didnt try to run my bootcamp windows but was trying to reinstall XP and im having disc errors, with a couple of different discs, sometimes it boots and goes into the installer then some files wont copy, sometimes it dies right at the beginning and says press any key to reboot.
