    Bootcamp help please!!!! ASAP!!!!!
    I have been trying to install win xp with bootcamp on my macbook air.

    I do have a LG slim external drive and i have been trying to load an ISO image that i burned to a disc. (dvd)

    I used disk utility to put the iso on the disc.

    However when i click bootcamp assistant and install windows, the screen goes black, the os shuts down and the grey screen comes up as if it were to start something, but then i get the little grey apple in the middle of the screen and it flickers between the apple, a circle with a line thru it and a file type icon. just again and again...

    I dont know what this means, Does that mean my disc is missing the bootable part? if so how do i get it to work?
    Or is there some other problem?

    Thanks for your time and i really hope we can get this going.

    Sorry about the misplaced post. I just thought because i was on a laptop that the laptop would be where to go, i guess your right software is more appropriate. Thanks for the move
