    I have done a partition using boot camp. I insert my XP SP-2 CD and wait until it is mounted, then I start installation. An error message comes up saying it can not find installation disc. However, I can few all files on CD, and even install windows on my PC.

    However, when I put in my brothers SP-1 disc in it goes to install windows no problems. Will there be any problems with installing SP-1? If so, can anyone help me with my SP-2 Disc problem? i have reburned it onto another disk to make sure it is a clean disc to stop reading errors - still no go. I have rebooted mac, still no go

    My user has admin access, and i have just installed Leopard and have done all updates etc.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Why don't you just install the SP1 you have and then install the SP2 update?

    My suggestion is to get a trial key for a virtual machine. Install SP 1 that and then use nLite to slipstream it to SP 2.

    Note: You don't need to activate Windows XP for 30 days. I installed my copy of XP Pro into a VM and slipstreamed it to SP 2. After that I just burned my installer and destroyed the virtual machine.
