    All I want to do is run Half Life 2 on my sweet new MBP. I have an SP1 disc but when reading the instructions to install XP via Bootcamp they stated to use a SP2 disc.

    Is this Apple just being friendly to Microsoft or do I really need an SP2 disc to install XP properly? Why can't I just update my XP1 via the service pack download!? Why do I always burn my toast!?!!! I need answers!!! PLEASE!

    I appreciate the help ladies and gentleman!

    (Oh and if this is already in a forum post please point me there! I searched and couldn't find anything)
