Hey folks, first time poster. I did some digging with the search function and didn't turn up an answer to my specific question. If I missed something, I apologize! I am looking to install Vista on my mac pro running Tiger. I never downloaded the Boot Camp beta, and any links to the software I've been able to find since the beta ended have turned up dead. The alternative (which sounds promising) is to install Windows on a separate hard drive entirely rather than partition an old one. My question for you guys is, do you think it will work properly? I *think* the process would be: 1) Install additional hard drive 2) Install Windows 3) (tricky party) Insert Leopard disk from my Mini or Laptop to get the proper drivers Essentially this should give me a windows hard drive that I can start up from instead of the normal OSX. It sounds good, but I am not as tech savvy as I'd like for messing around under the hood without supervision. Here are a few concerns: How will I switch between operating systems? Would using a Leopard disk on a tiger machine for drivers actually work? If so, what is the process for that? Are there any other things I am missing? Steps? Pitfalls? I appreciate all your help! Upgrading to Leopard is not an option for me because there is far too much audio software currently running on the system that I cannot upgrade. This is actually another reason why booting to a completely separate drive is especially appealing. I would also prefer to run windows natively as opposed to virtualization because the applications are resource intensive. Cheers!
