    Hi everyone

    I hope that someone can help me. I installed yesturday on my bootcamp partition windows XP 64 bit. I tried to install the bootcamp drivers with no luck at all! Is there any way I can install them, updates? new bootcamp drivers? something?
    I was reading a bit and people say that i have to install the one by one manually but some of the features of the computer will not work such as the cammera. is that true?

    Windows XP x64 isn't Windows XP--it's Windows Server 2003. I don't believe Apple has ever explicitly supported this operating system. Additionally, many software and hardware venders have never supported this operating system. Is there a reason you're choosing this over Windows XP or Windows 7 or even running in a VM?

    You don't say what version of OS X you will be using on the iMac. If you are using either Snow Leopard or Lion (10.6.x or 10.7.x) then CANNOT run Windows XP in Boot Camp. The only OS that will run is Windows 7.
