    I installed Xp Sp2 correctly onto my mac via bootcamp. Used the OSX disc to install the drivers.

    Everything went well, except after installing the drivers off the OSX disc I can no longer use the BT mouse or keyboard (but the resolution looks better). So I thought it must be the BT driver is being over ridden by the MS driver, so I thought I would plug in a USB mouse to fix it, it wont even recognise my USB mouse.

    Running SL10.6 and using its disc.

    Any ideas?

    134 views and a host load of people with the same problem on the net and noone knows how to fix it.

    tried booting into safe mode, it does recognise the KB to press f8, but once at login or desktop USB or BT is not recognised.

    im going to try reinstalling XP and instead of using the disc to auto install drivers im going to pick them individually as the mouse and usb was working prior to installing the drivers.

    if anyone on this forum does no how to fix this, help would be appreciated. thanks.
