    I guess I just want to know if it is possible. I have a bootcamp partition of xp on my mbp and I recently got a desktop PC just to have. I wanted to copy the bootcamp partition onto my pc and was wondering if this is possible. I have Winclone and use that regularly to backup my windows xp partition on my MBP. Thanks in advance.

    It seems like it should be using Winclone, but I haven't tried it.

    If you are going to run Windows on both machines, you really need a separate copy of Windows

    I have not tried to restore a Winclone to a PC either, but I assume you would need to do it from a Mac connected to the PC using MacFUSE or NTFS-3G
