    I don't have an Intel mac yet, but was wondering, how does Boot Camp/Parallels handle Windows XP activation? Is it the same as other Intel based systems? :confused:

    It should be the same, I don't speak from experience though. But what's weird is whenever I've re installed XP on a PC it's never asked for activation...

    Yep, it's all the same.. Boot Camp is merely just a program that allows you to partition another part of your Hard Drive to install windows in. The only problem you'll ever have with MPB + XP are your stubborn drivers.. but refer to onmac.net for that =)
