    Question Help with BootCamp running Windows on MacBook?
    Ok so i just bought my Macbook yesterday and i already found that a game i usually play only runs on Windows. So i try using Boot Camp to install Windows XP on my MacBook so i can use it to play the game i want anytime.

    the PROBLEM is that, being the stupid boy i am, i installed Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 1a from a disc that came with my Dell Computer years ago. Now i know that i needed Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 2.

    However i don't have a copy of Windows with service pack 2. Is there a way i can upgrade the Current version of Windows i have installed on here to Service Pack 2 so that i can run Boot Camp on my windows on here?
