    newbie needs help with VM Fusion and XP
    Hi there
    I just bought and downloaded, the newest version of VM Fusion for my Intel based Mac Book Pro (3 years old) that is running Leopard.

    I installed it, and am now trying to install Microsoft XP Professional.

    Upon doing so it reads on a black screen:
    CDBOOT: Couldn't find NTLDR

    So what now? And if you try to make a new virtual machine, does it automatically try to grab another 40 FB? Could the error message be based on the disc I used, if it is meant for distribution with a new PC?

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    It sounds to me like the disc you have isn't bootable or it's a recovery disc. You'll need a fully bootable windows disc for it to work correctly
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .
