My Blue Screen Heaven (or my MacBook Pro Windows XP Install)

Well, installing Windows just got a little easier, primarily because you can now do it on a MAC! The Bootcamp setup assistant makes installing Windows on your MacBook Pro as easy as finding an external disk drive on OS X.4. I was prepared for a long, drawn out battle with the install of Windows XP on my new MacBook Pro, but it was a cinch with Bootcamp. So while this setup assistant is still in Beta (and I will try and report any bugs I run into), the setup is a breeze. Being a good Lukacsian, as a rule I try not to fetishize commodities, but MAC is making this a harder and harder for me to live up to. Below are pictures of my brand new baby – the veritable the Maserati of the computer world!








Update: If you are like me and you don’t read directions all the way through, here is a tip that may save you some time on the discussion boards. After installing XP with Bootcamp, be sure to load the Macintosh drivers that you made a CD/DVD copy of when using the Bootcamp Installation Assistant. Impatience is NOT a virtue.

    Yes, Windows is exciting too, eh? 🙂

    Congratulations! I’ll bring a cup for Jerry, never fear.
