    I'm trying to reload Windows XP on my MBP & I can't get the installation to go into the setup. I've partitioned the disk at a number of sizes from 10GB to 20GB (and I have over 5GB remaining on the Mac HD), but it always gets stuck at the same place. I've disconnected everything including disabling the bluetooth mouse & keyboard. Windows goes through the loading of the setup files and then proceeds to "setup is starting Windows" where it produces a blue screen with "Problem detected & Windows is shutting down....". The error message is "SESSION3_INTIALIZATION_FAILED" and at the end it has *** STOP: 0x0000006F (0x00000002 etc. I seriously regret uninstalling Windows from this machine last week, as it was working fine. Also, the Windows disk is fine.

    Appreciate any help that you can give me.

    Check your Windows installation disc. It might be dirty or scratched.
