    Bootcamp and XP SP2 CD
    So Iíve read a few posts stating that in order to install XP with bootcamp, you need a retail copy of XP SP2. But what if I donít have a retail copy? Instead I have a corporate copy with SP2 slipstreamed into it or an OEM copy with SP2 slitpstreamed. Would that still work?
