Hi all,

I have a dual boot mac pro, I am selling it and want to put a clean install of Snow leopard on the machine. I cant find the install disk for XP so I need to leave XP as it is.

If I install a clean version of Snow Leopard will this wipe/effect XP.

Regards

Craig

How is XP installed? Is it via Bootcamp or something like Fusion or Parallels?

Also, moved to correct forum.

If Windows is on a Boot Camp partition, reinstalling your Mac OS will not affect it. I just did this recently with Boot Camped Win XP.

16GB iPhone 5, 64GB Wi-Fi only iPad 1st Gen.

Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.
