Installation snag

Post Reply New Thread Subscribe

Well, I'm not sure it even qualifies as an installation snag, as I can't seem to even get to the XP installation.

This is on a standard 1.83ghz Macbook running all the latest software/firmware updates. I managed to get my driver disc burnt and hard drive partitioned and all that fun stuff, but now that it's time to get down to the proper installation, it seems I've hit a wall.

I'm using an XP Pro SP2 Student Media disc (legit licensed copy), which registers perfectly well in Finder, but the Boot Camp Assistant won't recognize it. After waiting several minutes for the CD drive to finish spinning down, I hit the 'Start Installation' button, the drive begins its long reading process again and BCA throws a 'No installer CD was found' error.

Anyone encounter this problem before? Any suggestions?
QUOTE Thanks
