I have just purchased TW PGA 08 and installed it onto Win XP Pro on my mini, all was well for the first hour or so then it started rebooting my system. I read the Help files and all pointed to extra programs running in the background. I deleted my Virus Scanner and everything that was in Windows exept iTunes.. And I mean everything.. I reinstalled and now the games won't even load, so I updated all the drivers through the Intel website for Win XP Pro... Still won't load... Any Ideas??

Most likely it wont run because it needs full control over the system. which boot camp doesn't allow.

This is common in most EA titles

In madden 08 it told me it couldn't gain access to directdraw and crashed even though i have directx installed so my guess is there is something in boot camp that is not letting these titles boot.
