    Help me, major error with new MBP
    So I installed BootCamp and it burned me the drivers CD. Installed Windows XP (non Service Pack 2, but I had a SP2 CD so I THOUGHT that would be OK)

    But now it just boots into Windows XP instantly. How do I go back to OS X?

    Also, when I try to install SP 2 it says there is not enough hard drive room (4MB neccessary) in some CWindows\ folder to install it, so it fails and I can't install the SP2. When I run the Drivers CD it says:

    "This package requires a newer version of the Windows Installer. Do you want to update the version of the Windows Installer on your system?"

    I click Yes.

    "The required resource 'UPDATE' is missing."



    What should I do?

    Might be impossible.

    New question. How can I uninstall this version of XP?

    Meh, Restored Mac to single partition. I guess I just solved my own problem. I'll go get an SP2 install CD.

    Glad you fixed it...I did read that it had to be XP SP2 somewhere.

    Another solution (and quicker) is to download a program called "nLite". Basically, you copy the XP cd to your hdd, then run nLite and you can add SP2 to your original XP. You can also configure all sorts of handy options and make the installation unattended by adding your serial, username, passwords and time zone.
