    I use a mac mini but I solve the problem just unplug the mouse
    but know when my XP starts up It's starts an automatic defrag
    I can stop it with pressing a key so i unplugged my mouse and pressed a button
    but it didn't work (XP freeze if it tries to defrag so [​IMG] )

    EDIT: know my mouse doesn't work -_- what's next

    Word of advice....don't use BootCamp. I've used it a couple times dual-booting with Vista/7 on my Macbook 2,1 and have had more problems than what it's worth. Look into rEFIt, a bootloader of sorts that sits over the Mac's EFI (their version of BIOS). Do a full format of your disk, install the Mac OS on a partition (save free space for the other OS(s) that you want), do all of your updates, then go online and find a dl for the Mac BootCamp drivers (I think they just release v 3?), then install Windows using the new BootCamp drivers.

    Shoot me a PM if you get stuck or run into any issues that Google can't find for you.


    Good luck! It's worth it in the end!

    I haven't heard any complaints of bootcamp... assuming everything in question is updated to the latest version and legal.

    What graphics card does your mac have?
    What games do you want to play?
    Did you install the drivers in windows from boot camp?
