hopefully this fixes the annoying partitioning errors a lot of people were getting. I gave up trying to install bootcamp 1.1.1, I'll report back if I have success

Hmm, so not much really specified. Probably some small bugfixes but nothing major. It might not even have new drivers considering it hasn't been too long since 1.1.1

"If you previously installed Boot Camp beta, you can easily update to Boot Camp 1.1.2 beta. You don't need to partition your hard drive again (unless you want to change its size) or reinstall your Macintosh and Windows software or documents, but it's very important to update the Boot Camp Assistant software, create a new Macintosh Drivers for Windows CD and install the updated software it contains on Windows XP. Complete instructions are provided in the Installation and Setup Guide included with the Boot Camp 1.1.2 beta software."

Seems like it must have new drivers if they want you to burn a new CD

"Trackpad scrolling and right-click gestures work correctly"

Well hello, that's definitely a welcome improvement! I wonder if it'll work under Vista, or if I'll need to revert back to XP for the time being. Hmm... I'll report back later once I get my hands on an external drive and/or a blank CD.

you have to hold two fingers on the trackpad and click the trackpad button. regardless, it's still more convenient than having to use the right cmd key to do it... I would have liked to see two finger tap right-clicking as well

I would have liked to see tap clicking, let alone 2 finger tap clicking. Its a real pain in the ass to have to press the trachpad button everytime i want to click.. so much easier if you can just tap.

Installed 1.1.2 on my new C2D MBP last night. XP installed, but BSOD'ed during the Mac driver install. Now all HID peripherals (including the trackpad and keyboard) aren't recognized by XP.

Last known good config doesn't work, so I think I'm going to wipe the install and try again.

Same problem here except it was not a fresh install but a driver upgrade form 1.1.1 to 1.1.2. The error seemed to happen when installing the trackpad driver. Since the blue screen I have tried everything.

1: Reinstalling the 1.1.2 drivers
2: Installing the 1.1.1 drivers
3: Installing drivers one at a time after opening the MSI
4: Running a XP repair and reinstalling the 1.1.2 drivers
5: Safe Mode, Last known config, you name it.

The only thing left is a fresh install of XP. I am really bummed about this, Bootcamp was working flawlessly for me since August. I even upgraded from 1.1 to 1.1.1 w/o problems.

I wiped the partition and re-installed XP and the 1.1.2 drivers. The installation worked this time and I have a fully functional XP boot.

I am in the process of doing the same thing (wiping XP and reloading). All this for the right click option on the track pad! If entourage did not suck so bad I would not need this XP partition for outlook.

Does anyone know whether a "repair" of the install will work, or even to reinstall windows on top of the previous install with the frozen keyboard problem? I really can't afford to wipe the partition clean and start over. I've done that two or three too many times... two or three times. thanks for the help,

In general, a repair or an in-place upgrade/install of Windows does work and does fix problems caused by issues with the original install. And it usually goes smoother and faster too. YMMV, but that's what I'd do before wiping the partition (again).

I just tried running a repair and it gets to the first point that requires keyboard or mouse usage within the windows installation process, at 34 minutes left or so, and the mouse and the keyboard both don't work.

this happened to me before, but I don't remember what i did to fix it. any ideas?

Simple fix : remove the Apple Mighty mouse altogether. Use a generic PC USB mouse or use no mouse during the install process.

This has been well documented elsewhere and on apple's support sites. Not sure why this is, but I wasted an hour on this yesterday.

I'm not using a mighty mouse. nothing is plugged in when i do the install. i've read those posts about the might mouse all over the place, but I never really even knew what a mighty mouse was until recently.

Dunno where else to post this. I installed XP Pro on my MP last night without problems. One quirk though:

When I press down Option on Startup to change startup disks, the Windows partition is a standard hard drive icon, but the Mac partition is an iPod nano with a stop sign on its screen. There's no problem when I select the Mac partition and load up, but what's with the icon?

Please define perfect, because after I've connected it, it indeed works perfectly, but everytime I reboot Windows, I need to reconnect it again. I'm on a MacBook btw.
In a dream I'm a different me with a perfect you, we fit perfectly.
And for once in my life I feel complete and I still want to ruin it.

I'm also having issues like this. Oddly enough I'm sure this all started after I updated my firmware . This is on a MacBook Pro.

Did you ever resolve this issue?

Yuck *no*. 1.1.2 is horribly unstable on my 1.83 MBP. I can't run anything without getting 0x0000005 access violation errors. Then my MBP will freeze.

I rolled back to 1.1.0 via a System Restore. I lost the trackpad functionality but the MBP is rock-solid again.
