Apple has caved in to public demand and released Boot Camp
- software that will allow an iMac
, MacBook Pro
or Mac mini
system to boot Windows XP
. Of course, the Mac in question has to be Intel based, but it also involves a firmware upgrade and installing a package called Boot Camp Assistant Beta.app into your Utilities folder. Nicely enough, the software does a non-destructive repartitioning of your boot drive, meaning that you don't need unpartitioned disk space beforehand. Very positive results have been reported so far.
