    I have some XP Recovery discs from my old Windows comp. Will those work for installing XP on my mac? Later, if I want to remove windows, can I get my space back? Thanks!

    As long as the XP disc is the full version and you have a working Key, and yes you can get your space back, but when someone else responds they can tell you how or just search the forums I know the answer is in there

    Peace:cool:

    I had an XP CD that came with an old HP laptop. It included SP2 on it and was a full XP install disk. I was able to install XP using Bootcamp and the serial number that was on the bottom of the HP laptop worked perfectly in activating XP on the Mac.

    When you no longer want Windows on your Mac, simply run BootCamp assistant again and it will offer you the choice to delete the Windows partition.
