no GPT in XP

note to self:
the next time i'm formatting a USB-disk for windows use on a mac, putting important data on it, travels and tries to use that disk in a windows xp machine: remember to use MBR instead of GPT/GUID.

had to download damn small linux to be able to get the files of the drive.

error 2229 when installing bootcamp on Windows 7 32bit



apple are sloppy when they create their windows installer packages. you have to use the English format to be able to install bootcamp in Windows 7. change back to your preferred language after the install and you are good to go again.
