    I'm trying to install Windows XP with bootcamp. However, when I get to the first blue screen where I'm asked to press enter for new install, E for repair and F3 to quit it hangs. No matter what i press nothing happens. I can't even quit without turning the mac off.

    Any ideas??

    I don;t know if I had a similar problem with what you're having. For me, it was taht every 2% or so it would say the file could not be installed and such, then after this happened a few times I decided to quit the installer and then my Mac screwed up xD Well anyway, I'd also like to know whats the cause of this.

    Which version of XP is it? Is the keyboard wireless?
