So long story short, I attempted to install windows xp on my new macbook pro and ended up with a white screen. I reinstalled the mac osx operating system and all is fine. The problem due to the fact that I used a windows xp disc with sp1. So now I have a disc with Sp3 and I will try that. I am wondering if there are any issues with sp3, that anyone knows of? The only thing I know of is a hard drive issue, if you upgrade from sp2 to sp3.
