    Dual Boot (Windows XP)
    I'm currently trying to install OS X and Windows XP on my macbook without much success.

    First, I have three partitions:
    1. HFS (OS X)
    2. FAT32 (Data for sharing between the two OS)
    3. NTFS (Windows XP)

    I am able to install the initial portion of Windows on to the third partition but once I go into this partition during boot (by holding the option key), I get an error that states the disk is damaged.

    Has anyone had any success in getting something like this to work?

    Does the disk utility manager give any clues? It's possible that the install process did not work successfully. I'm assuming you're using Boot Camp?

    No success with boot camp. It appears that trying to install the NTFS partition created a g: drive which made it an extended drive.

    If anyone has achieved this, please post something.

    Ntfs
    Has anyone any success on getting Windows XP with NTFS on a separate partition? I've tried almost every method but it fails every time.
