hey guys, i'm new to this forum and macs in general. thus far, i love my 15" macbook pro. however, i'm a gamer and need to run some of my games on windows xp. i got an oem disk of home sp2 and went through all the bootcamp steps. however, after the setup files of windows xp are installed on my partition (which i formatted as ntfs) and windows set up initializes, nothing happens at the screen describing all the perks of windows xp. on the left of this screen is a timer that says estimated time left 39 minutes and apparently the current stage is "windows is being installed."

i have tried several times to get windows on my macbook pro, but the same thing keeps happening. any advice?
QUOTE Thanks
