Installing Bootcamp on an MBP

Hi,

I bought a 15" MBP a few weeks ago and, although I love OS X, there are far more games available for Windows. So, I'd like to install it.

I downloaded Boot Camp and installed it, but when I run the Assistant I get the following error:
Quote:
Boot Camp Assistant cannot be used.

You must update your computer's firmware before using this setup assistant.
So, I did as the Read Me guide said and I searched for 'macbook pro firmware update' on Apple.com. I then went to this page and downloaded the firmware, but when I tried installing that I got this error:
Quote:
Alert

This computer does not need this update.
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

~basskika~

You need this firmware to run bootcamp.

Thank you for posting the update.

I went into the windows installation and I cannot proceed as the mac does not respond to the enter key being pressed! What should I do?

All Bootcamp questions belong in the Windows and Other OS forum as the sticky at the top of every thread indicates.

Please repost there.
