After finally (2 days) getting Windows to load under Bootcamp I restarted for first time by pressing option and mouse froze. Now everytime I choose Windows at bootup the mouse freezes and I have to restart in MAC OSX. So my Windows install is useless, has anyone else experienced this problem?

It appears my USB port is the problem when booting into Windows, if I disconnect USB Hub then windows loads fine. Does anyone know a better solution then disconnecting this hub. I need the extra ports.

This works for me: I wait until XP is fully booted up. Then I plug in the USB hub by itself amd wait to Windows to recognize it. Then I plug in the other USB devices one by one.

Has anyone heard if Apple will eventually address this?

The problem may be the USB hub that you're using. I have a D-Link 7 port USB hub perpetually connected to my iMac, and have had no problems using my wired standard keyboard and MM when in Windows using Bootcamp. I did have connectivity problems with my wireless iMac keyboard and wireless MM, so I just use the wired input devices when in Windows.
