    Is there any way to install Windows Vista directly via BootCamp without taking the detour of installing Windows XP first? :confused:

    Windows Vista RC1 and up will install directly on an Intel-Mac without the need for XP or having to remove the 200MB EFI partition.

    However, there will be some issues getting the Bootcamp drivers to work.

    Hmm, I tried this on the Mac Pro and it didn't work out so well. :( I had to install Vista on top of XP.
