07-13-2007, 11:34 PM #1Boot Camp: Using an OEM copy of XP
Hey, just wondering if I would able to install an OEM version (this, specifically) of XP Professional with SP2 on an Intel Mac. Is this possible or do I have to get the full-out version which runs about $150 more?
Thanks in advance!

EDIT: I would also make sure that really has SP2 on it because they usually say it on the packaging.

I agree, TigerDirect is really dodgy. I would suggest Newegg. The price is exactly the same, and you have a more reputable seller.

Thanks a lot everyone.
One more question, is there any noticeable disadvantage to using the OEM version other than it can only clean install?
