    Hello,

    I've try'd to installing windows on my Macbook 2.5 GHZ

    This is what happends:
    1. i made a another partition
    2. but windows need NTFS, how do i do that without ***** leopard and my whole laptop.

    I broke up the installation and after that he doesn't regornize leopard anymore..! I used the backup CD, and all my file where gone..!! :(

    Please help me out with this one..
    I really want to have Windows XP on my MAC..

    Because.. and here comes my second question..
    I want to play Red Alert 3 on my Macbook, is that possible? Also with graphics and stuff? I mailed EA about it, and the only answer i get was "Until now there is nothing we know about a MAC version"

    Thanks!

    Regards,

    Justin

    For installing Windows XP on your Mac...

    *Use bootcamp to create the partition and boot you into the installer.
    *Choose the partition labeled bootcamp (should be the C drive)
    *Hit enter, choose format as NTFS, then hit F for format
    *Follow the installer till it dumps you to the desktop
    *Insert Leopard disk to install the drivers.

    For Red Alert 3...

    *Any macbook with a GMA X3100 or nVidia 9400m will run RA3 just fine... you fit into that category, congrats. :)

    I have a 8600GT 512 MB graphicscard, is this card also good enough?
