Hello there Mac Friends. I switched back to Mac for the first time since 1995. I bought a MBP 17" 2.16 Processor with 120 gig / 5400 HD. I hooked up to the internet and got the latest updates. No other programs or data transfer. Then I downloaded Boot Camp, followed all instructions, partition a default size, 5gig, and proceeded with a brand new full xp professional with service pack 2. The blue windows dos installer screen came up and began to load all kinds of drivers. Then in the same screen appears an error message: A problem has been detected.... session3_initialization_failed and nothing happenes. I have to remove the battery to restart laptop. Any suggestions?

I too had some strange problems while loading BootCamp on my 15" MBP. It took a couple of tries to get it up and running. Eventually I did get it straightened out and running right when the novelty started to wear off. Took a few weeks though. I didn't buy an Apple computer to use windoze... so I ended up reformatting the drive and re-installing the saved, original copy of my OSX install. I'm sure there are people who really want their machine to dual boot. It just didn't mean that much to me in the end.

And, you might want to make sure you have updated your firmware.the back of our computer looks better than the front of theirs
