Just bought Macbook Pro, 2.33GHz
I have installed Win XP on its own partion using Bootcamp. Everything works, keyboard, mouse, network etc.
Then I have installed Parallels v. 3036 (newest Beta) and made connection to Win XP via Bootcamp. Everything works, exept iSight Camera.
The problem is when I am rebooting with Bootcamp and I choose Windows. I come to the black screen where I have the choice between Windows and Parallels and the keyboard doesn't work....ggrrr:radioacti
How can I enter Windows without using Mac?
It's the same issue when I install Windows without Bootcamp.
