    Question for all the macbook users out there. I know Windows XP can be installed on the new macs (with the release of a rumoured planned patch). Any word on XP x64? Or has anyone tried it? The reason I ask is it is built from different architechture than XP Pro.. it is, instead, built from Windows Server 2003 x86-64 and is therefore much more stable and can address more memory.

    Just wondering if anyone has tried this!

    I'm not totally familiar with the MBP (and most people aren't because they aren't out yet), but XP 64 is a 64 bit OS. The MBP only has a 32 bit processor. I doubt they can work together.

    This is correct. It won't work. XP64 only works on 64 bit x86 chips.
