i spent an additional 4 hours just trying to reinstall the operating systemto no avail.
i finally just removed everything and gave her back her laptop. she had a friend who was going to help her out with a tower he was giving her. she wrote back that she was going to install windows xp and an anti-virus software. i asked if it was going on the macbook pro. here is her response:
"it's not going on to the laptop, no way, no how.
After way too many hours we got Windows installed but we need to get on line to get the service pak. I hate Windows..."
this is a major reason why i love the mac so much. why is windows so so f'cking difficult?
