I bought a MacBook this week for the purpose of running Windows XP off a partition. I ran the Boot Camp Assistant, partitioning 15 gig of my 160 gig hard drive for the Windows OS. Boot Camp prompted me to insert the Windows XP Pro with Service Pack 3 installation disc I'm using, so I did. I followed the Boot Camp instructions exactly, and the installation seemed to be on its merry way ... until the screen indicated there were 33 minutes left. With 33 minutes to go, the screen seemed to freeze (except that I could move the cursor/mouse) but the installation never advanced. I waited about an hour and it was the same, so I held the power button down and restarted the computer. It booted in Windows and tried to resume installation with 39 minutes to go. When it got to 33, it hung again. I've noticed other people having problems with this, but no solutions. Any ideas, folks? I want to be able to boot into Windows XP, not use Parallels or any other program. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
