I just purchased a brand new 17" Mac Book Pro, I was able to install Windows XP via boot camp easily, and the drivers install supposedly was fine as It said completed and please restart your computer so as I go to restart, it gets to the XP load screen and I see the Blue Screen of Death breifly and it keeps restarting, when it tryed to restart it would automatically restart to XP and not Mac OSX, that baffled me the first few times as I couldn't get it to boot into Mac OS but I was finally able to get it to, also XP will not even boot into safe made or anything? Any ideas? I have the newest version of Boot Camp all the firmware updates for my macbook, XP Pro with SP2 and so on.. thanks Cory.

I ended up formatting the hard drive again and got it to work, so I know have a fully functional Mac and PC all in one machine, it's great.
