    BootCamp XP w/sp2 using SlipStream Help!
    Ok ,

    I figured I would make one of my first posts here a question...

    Ive decided I am going to run Boot Camp on my new iMac and dugg out a copy of XP from 2002 that I recieved for free from a developers confrence.

    Now Im pretty new to Macs, but am pretty good with PCs.

    I know BootCamp currently only wants XP with sp2 intalled on the partition..
    I also know there is a way to create an XP sp2 install disk using a 'SlipStream Method" Ive never done it before, but from what I understand is it works.

    QUESTION:

    Is there away to create a install disk using the SlipStream method using only my Mac?



    I would prefer to do it all on my Mac....Ive Googled it a couple of times with no direct answer.

    Help would be appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Nope you need a windows pc to slipstream the installation. You can't execute the SP2 update to your disc without having a windows computer
    Don't forget to use the new User Reputation System
