Nightmare Installing Dual Boot

After getting hold of my long awaited Apple Macbook last friday on the 13th June 2008, I was very happy with my new white high tech toy gadget. There were so much fun and playing for me when I was using Mac OS X Leopard, however, due to the nature of my business requirements, I had to install Windows XP Pro on the Macbook running Boot Camp.

I got the Windows XP Pro SP2c from my highly recommended store, Make Fine in Funan Digital Mall, big thanks to Cousin Brandon for referring the wonderful retail outlet, great bosses and staff there !

Well, even though, I got it on monday, it wasn’t installed until tuesday night, it was really a nightmare for me installing Windows XP Pro on my Macbook, the installation got stuck half way for 20 minutes and I had to shut down and restart, before it continued installing. Initially, everything looked alright, however, some or another, it got stuck again ! I had to resort using pulling out the battery and pulling the power plug and starting all over again ! However, finally, the 3nd time round, it managed to install properly, after I decided to do a fresh install, over riding the initial partial installation.

I am not too sure where I had got it wrong, followed the instructions given by Apple, anyway, a big relief for me………. and ……… it’s not the end, still had many programs and files to transfer from my old to new laptop. A very different experience, lost + inexperienced = SOTONG a.k.a as Blur As Squid, called by my good old friend Junjie, who had helped me a lot in the Apple programs.

Thank You for your help, Junjie !

It’s time to go back and continue installing programs on my Macbook, while I am typing finish this post on my old laptop………………..
