    Windows iso file
    Hi everyone just recently bought a macbook, switching over from windows. But, like most people I will need to use some programs specific to windows so here comes my question. I have an iso image of windows xp pro sp2 saved on a ext hd and I was wondering if I can directly install that image file using either boot camp or vmware fusion. help would be much appreciated!

    use the disk you made the iso from.

    if you don't have that disk, technically the iso is illegal and can't be discussed here.

    well, I go to college and downloaded it off the school website. I also have the registration key so it should be a valid copy.

    If you have the registration key from your school download, it's a legal copy.

    Why not just burn the ISO to a CD and install it that way? It should install without a problem if it's a full (not upgrade) copy of XP Pro SP2.

    I believe that VMware Fusion allows the installation of an operating system from an iso...
