    bootcamp + xp SP2 CD
    Hi All,

    I used search and such but can't find a real answer...

    I am testing and playing around on my MBP with crossover and soon (hopefully) bootcamp.

    I am having troubles playing counterstrike with crossover and I think crossover is the problem. Therefore I want to test bootcamp.

    The problem I face though is that I require a windows XP cd with service pack 2 on it. I have an official version of the cd ofcourse without SP2 on it. Now I am supposed to buy a new version of XP (or vista) ? Which will cost me 230+ euros.

    Anybody have a solution or a way I can save my money?

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Yes, you can download the service pack and do something called 'slipstreaming'.

    You need to copy the original CD and the service pack onto your hard disk, combine them and burn to a new disk.

    See the 2nd half of this thread for how to do it.
