    Hi all...

    I'm having the late 2009 Macbook. Trying to find out if bootcamp with XP Black Editions will work.

    Thanks in advance.

    Why wouldn't it? Black Edition is just XP with modifications.

    If, however, you're downloading Black Edition, you're most likely doing it wrong (illegally). And read the comments on most of the downloads you see - they will mention that those contain malware and trojans.

    Just a friendly warning. The rest is your problem :)

    Black edition is highly riddled with malware.

    Not to mention most people who use it have their system performance degrade to the point its unusable. I've seen this on three computers (out of the three I've seen running it) so far.

    Oops and yes it does work. The last machine I saw running it was a macbook pro.
