    So I'm using bootcamp 3.0 on my macbook 10.6.4. When I try to run bootcamp, it works fine for the beginning. I can partition it, use my Windows Service Pack 2 CD, and then it tries to install XP. But when the computer starts back up again and tries to load the SP2 CD, i get stuck on the black screen with the blinking white bar in the top left corner. I've let it run for 10+min. and it still stays on that screen.

    I've tried restarting my computer again holding down option and selecting to boot from the CD, but the same problem happens. Unfortunately, I'm not that tech savvy so I don't really know what to do. Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

    Be specific. What did you try?
