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.

Winclone

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
