    ok , I have an early 2008 MacBook that runs snow leopard. It cannot be updated beyond 10.6.8. I decided to run boot camp and work with Windows since Mac no longer offered security for snow leopard. Anyhow, I did the deed but now, I can't get book camp to install on the Windows side. It's been sitting at the NVIDIA graphics screen for hours with no movement. Any tips out there?

    If it was me I'd just install Windows directly instead of using Bootcamp. It will install just fine, there will be horrible graphics etc. Once the install is finished just load drivers from the bootcamp folder of OSX onto windows, or save them on a flash drive first and then load them. If you want to dual boot you can just hold down option. I don't really like bootcamp myself, but that's just my thing.
