    I am changing my boot drive on my MacPro. A fresh crisp and clean install of mac os x and all the programs, so everything is going to be as it was on the old boot drive.

    My question is, what will happen to my bootcamp xp installation ?

    My Xp is installed on a separate disk not on the boot drive. So nothing will happen to that installation.

    I really do not want to install my XP and games all over again so…….

    Does any one no what will happen ?

    it should be fine. after you reinstall OS X, the BC drive should show up in finder as normal.

    Then either change the startup disk, or hold down Optn on reboot to get back into windows.
