    Restoring Bootcamp Partition
    Hello,
    I have bootcamp setup with windows xp, and I am trying to basically overwrite the bootcamp partition with one from another machine. I went into disk utilities and and copied the bootcamp partition from the other machine to an external drive and then restored it on the machine in question. It restored fine, however it will not boot to it now. What is the best way to get the bootcamp setup/partition from the other computer to this one.

    Thanks in advance!

    You can't use Disk Utility for that task. What you want is WinClone.
