Hi there,
I have installed Mac OS version 10.4.9 in my system. I would like to install windows xp SP2 on the same machine. For that I downloaded bootcamp beta and installed in Mac. I am following the instruction from apple website. I choose to install from /application/utility/bootcamp assistant. But i could not see any option to burn the driver CD.I should have seen this option. Rather, I could only see the message "The startup disk can not be partitioned or restored to a single partition". I have paritioned hard drive into three drives.

Do you have any solution for this.

please help me, I will be very grateful.

Thanks

Krishna,

I current only have PowerPC (15" G4 PowerBook) so a lot of what I am going to suggest is only from what I've heard.

Have you tried using something other than BootCamp to install WinXP on your Mac?

Try Parallels and VMware Fusion.

Here's a great article which addresses an issue common to yours regarding BootCamp.

Read about it here.

Hope this helps,
