    i have tried it
    i tried it last night... i did not have SP2, just the first XP disk that i had laying around. IT did work quite well. However, not sure if if was just me but, i could only get the screen to be like 1/2 or 1/3 being used. It was like the widescreen movie channels (using a Samsung 215TW monitor). But for the working aspect (OS) it ran really fast, compared to that of virtual PC i tried running on my powerbook g4 while back. It was a world of difference. I too love OSX, but there are certain things i like about XP too... used to be windows user about 3 years ago. I do look forward to advancements to the beta software and the new OS in general.

    Take my word for it, you need XP with SP2 slipstreamed to do a proper job with Boot Camp. I used this howto and it worked for me.

    Here's the result, linked below ... (You're seeing side by side desktops because I am spanning to a 19" LCD.) Note the spyware removal tools and NAV .

    ok so I went through the steps only to find out my cd key is invalid. My friend is coming over later tonight to redo the whole process with a valid copy of xp. My mac is still at the windows setup and I cant exit it. To get back to macOS and then install windows later, should I just turn off the computer?

    Yeah, you can hold down the option key on boot and select your OSX volume. When you get the right CD, just start Boot Camp again and have at it.

    I just switched to Mac world, but there are a few Windows apps I still need to use for work. Now that I can install Windows on my Mac I can get rid of my hulking ugly Dell. However I have a few questions before I go ahead with this that I'm hoping someone can help me with:
    - How easy is it to uninstall Windows once done?
    - Can the partition size be changed after installation?
    - Will my wireless keyboard work in Windows?

    I have many more questions, but these are the burning ones I have right now. I would appreciate any help.

    It's very easy to uninstall. Bootcamp will revert your OSX volume to it's original state if you decide to take that option. Wireless keyboard is no problem as long as it has windows drivers, and even so it may not need them. I am using a wireless Logitech keyboard and mouse.

    it lasts until 10.5 comes out or september 30, 2007, whichever comes first. apple hasn't said whether it stops working at that point or if it's just illegal to use it past that point. i hope it's the latter. i'll buy leopard, i just don't want to have to do it right away.

    Even after installling the Macintosh Drivers CD, the Apple Remote Control (IR), Apple Wireless (Bluetooth) keyboard or mouse, Apple USB Modem, MacBook Pro's sudden motion sensor, MacBook Pro's ambient light sensor, and built-in iSight camera will not function correctly when running Windows.

    But there may be a workaround...
