    Question Boot Camp: Keyboard doesnt work?
    I searched the forums and found nothing on this. I was hoping someone could help me.

    I have an intel iMac and I installed Boot Camp, It was going perfectly fine, windows XP was installing untill it asked me if i wanted to continue, so i hit enter, but it wasnt understanding the keyboard whatsoever. None of the keys were working during the XP installation. Does anyone know why this is?

    OK, i was informed that the mouse is supposed to be connected to the keyboard instead of the back of the iMac for it to work during the installation. Just for a reference for anyone who wants to know in the future.

    Sorry for the double post.

    I don't know about the mouse needing to be connected to the keyboard (although that may be true - I have a MBP, so that isn't an issue), but I ran into a similar problem with XP under Bootcamp. My problem was that my copy of XP did not have SP2 slipstreamed into the disc. That's not a big deal as you can easily find tutorials on making a slipstreamed SP2 CD from your existing disc, but that was definitely the problem. Things worked perfectly after that.

    Not sure of how to do it with a Mac - I don't think it's possible since you need to have the setup program from the XP actually do the slipstreaming.
