XP on Mac via Boot Camp part 1 – Starting setup

Did the required firmware update, and burned the driver CD. The next step was to “Insert your installation CD, and click Start Installation”. It rebooted from there, right into the familiar blue Windows XP setup. It’s going now.

One potentially dangerous spot was picking what partition you want to install to. I chose to create an 8GB partition on the 80GB hard drive. When I came to the point where I choose where to install Windows, it wasn’t immediately obvious which one I should choose, until I looked at the size, and found the 8GB one. If I had made the size similar to the Mac partition, that could be a scary choice. Especially since the next step is “format this partition”…

More updates as things progress! :-)
