    I have been searching these forums for the last day and while I hope I went through all of the threads mentioning Boot Camp 1.3, the SR MBP and a Windows XP Professional installation, I still can not seem to get a straight-up answer to a question.

    All that said, I wanted to ask any users that have installed XP Pro on a new [SR] MBP with Boot Camp 1.3 - "can you tell me what issues are still present, i.e., what drivers are still missing with the new Boot Camp 1.3"?

    I am mainly concerned about audio/video and network [wired/wirelless/Bluetooth]. Does all this work properly now under XP Pro?

    I realise Boot Camp lists all of the items as functional - but I've been reading reports about this-and-that not working still.

    About to make the switch, but XP Pro functionality is critical to my work.

    That's a really hard question to answer.

    Everything I've tried on XP Pro on BC 1.3 works great. Exactly how I would expect on a PC with the same spec.

    But I can't guarantee you'll get the same results - I don't know what apps you run.

    Can you give us a clue?

    That is all I wanted to know. Having XP Pro run natively without issues is what I needed to confirm.

    I do .NET development that I need XP for. With the assumption that the above is correct [as you confirmed] - why would you think that there would be an issue with any of the XP applications?

    So, Boot Camp 1.3 does not include the iSight driver? Or the actual driver is broken?
