    Boot Camp: Blue Screen of Death during installation, no Mac OS X?
    Hi, just tried to install Windows using Boot Camp on my new Mac Pro. I burned the driver disk, inserted my windows XP SP2 disk, computer restarted and windows installation began. During where setup is copying files i get the blue screen of death every time!

    When I restart my computer it just does this again, but I'm getting no option to choose between Windows or Mac OS X! Any ideas how to fix this?

    Far as changing stariup disk - the standard solution is to hold down the option key then choose the option you want.

    Far as the XP Install goes - don't know.

    On my attempts XP loads the files and reboots ok but gives a hardware error about 6 minutes into actual install.

    Begining to think the problem is either a bad firmware update or a bad Sony cd/dvd drive.
