XP Will not Run on Intel MacBook, iMac


With the announcement of the first Intel based Macs yesterday, many users have rejoiced in being able to dual-boot both Mac OS X and Windows. Unfortunately, this is not the case; due to Apple's use of the extensible firmware interface (EFI) rather than BIOS, current Windows releases will not run on the systems.

Instead, limitations in Windows itself will prevent its use on the new MacBook Pro laptop and iMac. BetaNews | XP Won't Run on Intel MacBook, iMac
