I've been having some trouble with slow FireWire speeds in Vista with Boot Camp. I hope this update helps!

From your XP installation, use the Software Update, the same as you would in OS X. It's "Apple easy"! Wink

Thanks Hackers. You would think I would have just guess that but I'm a bit out of it today.

Yep, it's an .exe file. You can also download it from Apple's website and run it directly in Windows.

I hate to say this, but I'm actually looking forward to Windows XP SP3 for the reported speed increase and WPA2 support. It also makes Vista look like a bigger mistake. I mean if that's possible. Laughing

The update didn't help my issues with FireWire. It's still going very, very slow. Back to square one... Sad

I haven't seen any change but, I presume this update is only to let BootCamp except the SP3 that's coming . . . I'll repost once SP3 is out and I've installed it.

You can now with the update. 64 bit Vista as I understand, not XP.

Warning:

When getting ready for windows XP service pack 3.

Remember these items.

1. Windows XP Service Pack 3 converts all versions of Home Media Center and Tablet Pc to Professional status.

2. Windows XP Service Pack 3 Contain's a updated MSO.DLL for Microsoft Office if you are running a illegal or patched version you will find them disabled after installing service pack 3.

3. Yes Windows xp service pack 3 is faster and more stable and shorter to install then Microsoft's windows vista service pack which has to restart 4 times before finishing it's installer.

4. There is a updated Version of nlite if you want to stream your windows xp service pack 3 into your Windows cd.

5. Do not run X-windows vista transformation pack as it hasn't been tested with service pack 3 yet.

I so far am impressed with service pack 3 works nice.

6. It's a Windows product, so it's actual behaviour is likely to be very different from what Redmond claims.

The only difference I noticed when I installed Windows with SP3 (admittedly an early version) was that everytime I tried to copy a file from one folder to another it told me "There may be risks with this page"
