    Exclamation BT3 will not boot with macbook pro

    Hello, I have the newest mac book pro late 2008, and when I boot up backtrack from cd I get this error

    * looking for data directory
    Fatal error occured - BT3 data not found.
    You are maybe using an unsupported boot device (eg. SCSI or old PCMCIA).
    Workaround: Copy the directory BT3 from your boot device to an IDE/SATA disk, eg. to /mht.hda1/BT3 or C:\BT3. Then try to boot again.
    * Something went wrong and we canít continue. This should never happen.
    * Please reboot your computer with Ctrl+Alt+Delete

    Does anyone know a solution for this?

    There you go. Maybe version 4 will work with Macs better, who knows.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    You will probably not like this piece of advice, but running BT3 under a virtualization application like VMware Fusion or Parallels will be your best bet. You will however not be able to use the internal wireless card as a real wireless device in this manner but will have to get a supported USB card instead.
