Is it possible to upgrade Boot Camp on 10.4.11?
 
Hi,
I have a Macbook running 10.4.11
I am also running XP Pro SP2 using Boot Camp 1.2 Beta. I'd like to install SP3 but I've read you first need to upgrade to Boot Camp 2.1.
I downloaded Boot Camp 2.1 at apple.com but I'm having a lot of trouble installing it.
Is it even possible to upgrade BC 1.2 Beta to BC 2.1 when the Mac OS is 10.4.11? I've searched but I can't find an answer...
Thanks alot!

Boot Camp is for Leopard and Snow Leopard only. It was merely a beta when it was available on Tiger.

However, I would like to know what sort of trouble you're having installing it?

Hi,
Thanks for the reply.
I've downloaded BC 2.1 from apple website
When I double click to open it, it does nothing...
I've searched the internet and some say its a language conflict others say its a video driver conflict... I've tried it all, but its still not loading. So I'm starting to wonder if it is possible to upgrade BC 1.2 to BC 2.1?

G'day and welcome to the forums.

As Kash advises, leopard and Snow Leopard only. Definitely upgrade your MB to either and you will find BootCamp and your installation will run a lot better. Snow Leopard on a clean install is the cheaper way to go.
