installing windows via bootcamp on X64


Recommended Posts

hallo forum and ssd experts,

i've just installed a X64 SSD in my MacBook Pro (mid 2007).

Installation of Mac OS X 10.6 SL runs perfect and everything works as it should... BUT:

the installation windows XP pro SP2 (original CD) via bootcamp fails.


after creating a drive for windows, bootcamp tells me to insert the Windows CD and to restart my MBP... the computer should boot from the windows cd.


but after the restart, all i get is just a blank white screen, the cd drives strarts reading and spinning, and then.... nothing.


i formatted the drive several times, but still no luck...

Cd is OK! Drive as well!


any ideas??

personally either VMware fusion or Parallels works much much better. Parallels so far seemed the most seamless.

also i have read that if you let bootcamp format or partition it does not seem to play nice.

better to format a partition first from the MAC to NTFS then choose the drive/partition during the install.


i still have had 100% success with Parallels.

no need to format anything, it just works.
