    Boot Camp +Windows , Keyboard, CD Dont respond
    I tried using Boot Camp to install Windows, but when the screen pops during Windows installation asking for the partition, the keyboard wont work and the CD drive wont eject either.

    I'm stuck in this cycle where the Windows install comes up each time. What do I do? Please help.

    Thanks,
    Abhinav

    You need a copy of the Windows XP CD with SP2 integrated. Older versions won't work.

    Try this website to create an XP CD with SP2 integrated.

    I have a Media Center 2005 DVD. I assume that it should have SP2 on it. In any case, how to I remove this CD and boot into Mac because my computer keeps booting into the CD each time.

    I'm not sure if Media Center 2005 is installable via Bootcamp. Apple is very specific that it be Windows XP SP2.

    For now, press and hold the Option key, turn on your laptop and when prompted, click on your Macintosh HD. Then, go into System Preferences and set your Startup Disk to Macintosh HD.

    Once you get a usable CD, you can again boot to it using the Option key held-in during startup.
