    Hi Guys, I was doing some googling to find info on a problem I'm having and located your forum -amazing. Well I have one of the early 17" Intel iMac's, 1.83 mhz and the model with the seperate video card. Anyway, I occasionally boot up into Windows XP on my Intel and well recently I bought a copy of Unreal Gold (you know the original 1998 Unreal game plus the Na Pali sequel). The results? The graphics are choppy and stink. Now I happen to have a new game, Star Wars Legos, that I play on it on System X and the game plays and looks great. I suspect the problem on Unreal is that the video card is not being recognized while in Windows XP. Any suggestions? And if this is the case, any suggestions on how to get the video card recognized?

    I'm not sure what was the graphic card installed back then but try to find manyfacturers website and download bootcamp drivers.
    I know that ATI has a specific driver for bootcamp that works with XP/Vista but not sure what hardware you have.
