Hi guys, I'm having a bit of 'moment' trying install Windows.

I printed off the bootcamp instructions, and followed them to the letter. I created the partition, and the Macbook restarted as per the instructions. However, the 'Windows Installer' never started, so I don't know where I'm supposed to go from here.

I've tried searching for it, but haven't had any luck.

Any ideas?

Does the DVD spin up? Do you see anything on the screen? I ask because the problem may be with the disc or the drive.

Hi - Thanks for your reply - It's sorted now, the issue was that I had a USB thumb drive still in the computer, so that was causing it to not boot from the disc....

Anyway, all sorted now! One question though, if I may - Is there a way to get the trackpad to react as it does in OSX? As in, I can click links and things by just tapping the trackpad, instead of actually pressing it down?

In the BC control panel, there should be an option to configure the trackpad.
