Hi, I have this problem when I switch to XP on my MBP. Everytime I switch over to Xp from OSX, or when i turn on the Laptop for the first time and go into XP, once everything is loaded it restarts...so then when i go into it again, it now works. This is really annoying, why doesn't it load properly for the first time?

What version of BootCamp are you using?

I had some similar problems with the original batch of drivers... with the newer releases; I installed the updated drivers and haven't had any trouble since.

I'm just downloading version 1.2 now...How can I install 1.2 though? won't this mean ill have to reinstall XP all over again. Or should I just burn the drivers disk and install that in XP?

That's what it supposed to do. Don't worry. That is the way MS made it.

Open Control Panel...System...Advanced tab...startup & recovery box...settings button, and take the check out of Automatically restart box. Then check the Write a system event, and the Admin alert boxes.
This will force a BSOD on the next crash, it might tell you the problem
