So I have to have XP for one class just this semester, so I'm trying to find a way to get XP free since I won't be using it very long. I downloaded the x64 free trial to a disk, but Bootcamp doesn't recognize this as a Windows XP disk...what should I do? does anyone have any advice/suggestions/info/experience? Thanks in advance!!

my suggestion - read the forum rules; this is illegal and therefore against them.

alrighty then. when you say you're trying to get a piece of licensed software to use on another piece of software that also has a license, it just seems more than a little suspicious.
