    I love my mac, but for games it just doesn't cut it.

    I have used bootcamp in the past.
    But my annoying sister someone how wiped it. So i had to reset my mac.

    But I have since lost the windows XP pro disk and only have the service pack 2 remaining.

    I was wondering if there is any way i can turn my dads computer (XP)
    into a bootable medium and dual boot it on my mac using a external hard drive.
    Then i could delete his files and have a nippy version of XP dual booting just like bootcamp ?

    Also i do have a external hard drive which I could use for creating into a
    bootable medium, just i dont know how to turn it into a bootable medium.
    Would it actually work?

    Yes/No. If you want to install XP on a EHD, it is possible but require editing the install disk
