Specs: Windows XP
Hi everyone - I bought an iMac about three months ago, and this past weekend I tried installing Windows XP. Boot Camp seems to work fine, but on the Windows install, when I get to the screen that asks if I want to set up, repair an installation, or quit, I can't make anything happen. I don't know if the keyboard is unresponsive or if the whole system freezes. (Here's a screenshot of that screen: http://www.blackviper.com/Articles/...

So I don't even know where to start looking for a solution. I've tried removing the partition and reinstalling a couple of times. Any ideas? Apple tech support said this was a Windows issue.

From the screen you are seeing the choice normally is to do selection 1, install Windows. Did you have any messages prior to this screen?

No error messages or anything. I'm not at the computer now, but I recall Windows spends about 7-8 minutes loading stuff, and then goes to that screen. I don't think there are any prior user inputs.
