    Parallels to bootcamp
    Ok, so I have winxp w/ sp2 installed on my macbook pro along with parallels. However, I would like to use bootcamp instead. The problem is that my xp disk is at home and I am with my parents. I will be here for 2 or 3 weeks. So, is there a way I can copy my xp stuff onto a disk and then install bootcamp? Also, where would I get my installation key info?

    In a word, no. Boot Camp merely facilitates the installation of Windows on a separate partition on your Mac. To do this, much like you do with any other PC, you will need your installation CD. It's that simple.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
