    I've read a tons of threads on here and just have a couple of questions that I dont believe were covered. I want to install XP on my new MBP but don't want to run it using bootcamp. I've read that VMWARE is the program to use. If I go this direction what are my steps to install.

    Do I need to install XP after or before Install VMWARE?

    Install VMWARE, then it will walk you through installing XP.

    There are three main options:

    -Boot Camp lets you choose on start-up whether to use OSX or XP

    -Virtualisation lets you run OSX and XP at the same time, slowing both down, and with limited graphics in XP. Parallels and VMWare Fusion are the two likely candidates. In my opinion Fusion is better.

    You install Fusion, then install XP from within Fusion.

    Thanks for your help. I want to be able to run XP within the OSX system. VMWare Fusion sounds like the one.
