    Windows Install problem
    Hey guys

    I have an almost new macbook and am trying to install windows on it. I used the boot camp assistant to create a 20 gig HD partition. Then it asks me to put windows disc in and it works and loads a bunch of stuff but when I get to the blue screen where it asks if I want to install windows or repair it crashes. When I hit enter to install nothing happens it's just frozen. Nothing is wrong with the windows disk itself, I tested it and successfully installed windows on another machine.

    I don't know whats wrong. The windows disc is service pack 3 so it should work.
    Thanks for the help,


    Farlen

    The Boot Camp documentation specifies a Window XP disc with SP2 integrated. SP3 is still in beta, so that might be why you're having issues.
    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!
