    Boot Camp: blue Screen installing Mac Drive
    Hi. I installed boot camp. did all the right things. eg update firmware etc. I installed and ran XP Pro Corp SP2 fine with out the Mac drivers. While running the installer for the mac drivers it was about 90%+ done. and the blue screen came up. When i went back into XP the keyboard keys didn't work either was the trackpad.

    I'm running a MacBook Pro about 2 weeks old. I could get back into OS X and delete the bad install of XP. The space i made was a 32gig FAT32 for XP Pro

    Has anyone else come across the problem, and if so found any fixs for this issue?

    Specs:
    MBP, 2.0Ghz, 2GB RAM, 120GB HDD, 1991 Powerbook 100, Gen 2 Nano, Gen 1 Touch
    I had the EXACT problem a few days ago. Wiped the XP install from inside OS X, re partition (32GB FAT) and installed again.
    On the previous install the BSOD appeared during the install of trackpad drivers.
    This time, i simply kept moving my finger on the trackpad during the Mac Drivers Installation. Once or twice it stopped responding for a few seconds, but it went fine and now i have full functionality!

    Good luck!
    Oh...and only pretty girls use Macs...

    I am sure that everyone who purchased it does. You should have one for yours to when you purchase it. What is the point of asking everyone else if they have one?
