    Is it possible to boot Windows XP on a Macbook without partitioning the hard drive? If not, is there any risk in partitioning the hard drive? Is it easy to undo?

    Thanks

    If you don't want to partition your hard drive, you can install Windows XP as a virtual machine using a program like VMWare. But partitioning the hard drive should not be difficult or dangerous, Disk Utility pretty much takes care of everything for you.
