Well after trial and error I know Vista 64 bit doesn't work, so does XP 64?

I'm using XP Pro x64 with no problems on my MacBook Pro. Of course, I'm using it within VMWare Fusion. For that matter, I had Vista Business x64 on it as well, but that was a waste of time, so that vmware image has been moved to the file server until I absolutely need it.

Do you use XP Pro x64 by itself at all (booting to it like OS X)? I use the Windows side for gaming, so VMWare or Parallels isn't an option.

As stated in your other thread, XP x64 won't work with Boot Camp for the same reason, drivers.

I've heard that for x64 Windows OS's will work on the newest Mac Pros, so will it be long before they can be used on any Mac?
