I'm currently waiting on my new MacBook Pro being delivered, and it'd be an advantage for me if I could run Windows on it as well. I've only just recently heard about the development of Boot Camp, but as far as I can see from everything I've found and read online, it specifically requires the use of a Windows Service Pack 2 installation disc. I only have my own Service Pack 1 disc. Is there any way I can use this initially and then upgrade? Does the application actually allow the installation if SP1 is used rather than SP2?

Any info appreciated. Thanks.

Stephen
