I am trying install Windows XP Home edition in my MacBook using bootcamp but after I get the CD in the computer it sounds like it is reading it and then it gets stuck on a black screen with a cursor on the left top corner...can someone help?

Thanks!

This is usually an indication of using a Windows disk that is not compatible with Boot Camp. Please read the Boot Camp instructions.

I believe you need a XP install with Service Pack 2.
