I Installed windows XP on my Apple computer when the Bootcamp Beta version came out....A couple of days ago I was starting up Windows Xp, and it started up fine, but when it got to the desktop, it froze. I tried restarting many times, all with the same result....I started up in safe mode, which worked, and i ran an antivirus scanner, but it didnt pickup anything...being that my Av software was a little outdated, I thought that maybe it hadnt picked up the virus, so i uninstalled Windows XP thinking that there was no hope....then, i reinstalled it, only to find the exact same problem.....the iinstallation went perfect, but the moment i turned the computer on to Windows Xp, it froze....Now, im thinking that it might be a video driver problem..My Apple partition of bootcamp still works perfectly fine....Can anybody help me?
