    Downloading Windows Online for Boot Camp. Need Help
    My school offers its students a free copy of Windows XP available to download online. The download is a .exe file. Does Boot Camp require a cd be inserted to install Windows? What can I do in this situation? Thanks

    Yes, Boot Camp requires a CD, specifically one with SP2 integrated. That .EXE may generate one - see if you can run it from a Windows machine.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
