    I was wondering if anyone knew how to make a WinXp installtion cd on a macbook. The family computer is a PC and it wont boot up and we cannot find the installation disc. I know I can download it of the windows website but its a .exe file.
    I was wondering if there was anyway to download it onto a macbook (only other working computer in the house), and save it onto a Cd Rom to then use to start up the PC?? Any help or other ideas would be great! Thanks

    No you can't, not unless you have a MSDN subscription and it wouldn't be an exe it would be an iso.

    You can't download MSDN/TechNet software on a Mac because the download manager only runs on Windows anyway. Your best get is to buy an OEM version of Windows.
