    Im not positive but I think some things are missing on my computer and also how do I set up my broadband Internet connection when it doesn't seem to recognize anything! Sorry I'm vague in describing..

    sounds like you havent installed the Boot Camp drivers. insert the Mac OS X Leopard install DVD or your Mac's the first grey Restore DVD while in Windows and the installer will open straight away.

    Thank you, richthomas!

    I was having at least one of the OP's problems, that being no internet connection. Also, I couldn't get the screen resolution to go above 1920 x 1440 and there was no sound from my speakers. I even erased and reinstalled xp 32-bit on my Boot Camp drive. Then I came across this thread, dug out the restore DVDs, popped in the first disc and bam! everything works just like it does with my virtual machines.

    Interestingly, I didn't have to do this on my iMac (purchased in December 2007), so it didn't occur to me that I'd have to do it here. Now I have my screen resolution at 2560 x 1600 (30" ACD) and Windows runs like it should.

    Thanks again.
