Hi, 3 days back bought a MacBookPro 2.66ghz i7, 8gb ram, 128SSD. It came with Snow leapord 10.6.3.

I installed Bootcamp > Windows XP 32bit> inserted OS dvd to install Bootcamp drivers Version 3.1 (Build 2232). Now the problem starts.

While installing the drivers, the installer stops at "Installing Audio drivers" and didn't proceed. So, i copied the Bootcamp drivers to local hdd and tried installing again. This time the installer stops at "Installing Apple Keyboard". I tried three times.

Can anyone help.

Let's move this to the proper forum first.

When you installed the BC drivers, were you booted to Windows XP? And was Boot Camp 3.1 included with your Snow Leopard DVD? Are you sure it wasn't Boot Camp 3.0? Because 3.1 is a download from the Apple site and can not be installed unless 3.0 is installed first.

Let us know.

Regards.

not sure if it is the same when installing drivers for xp. But i had the same issue when installing the drivers for windows 7. I had to download an updated version of the drivers from apples support page.

Please do not post twice. You initial post was moved to the Windows forum where it belongs and was answered there.

I'm not sure if there's a way, but try looking for Bootcamp 2.0 drivers, and see if you can update to the new version from there.
