Can I install Windows XP professional 64-bit version on my macbook with Boot Camp? thanks.
Someone please correct me if I'm wrong but I thought 64-bit versions of Windows only work with the Mac Pro.
"An authentic, 32-bit Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition or Professional with Service Pack 2 (or later) disc
An authentic, 32-bit Microsoft Windows Vista Home Basic, Home Premium, Business, or Ultimate disc"
64 bit XP uses different drivers than 32 bit, and Apple hasn't supplied 64 bit drivers. I would imagine it would be very difficult to hack it to work.
Shoot... do you think Apple will release any anytime soon?
There was a rumor that Apple would address this issue in the 10.5.2 update that should come out by the end of the month.
Well the Santa Rosa macbook is capable of running a 64 bit OS. The C2D is a 64 bit CPU. Speaking of which, I believe Leopard runs in 64 bit.
Anyway as far as windows x64 on a macbook, all you'd need is drivers.
Macrumors covered it recently into the new Mac Pros:
They only mention Vista, but XP might come later on.
