    I just bought a 2008 generation 8x2.8Ghz Mac Pro. In my workplace I've been using XP 64 bit for years, and would like to have the ability to boot into XP 64 bit on my mac pro if possible. I know it's not supported by Apple, but provided the correct drivers can be manually assembled it should work.

    I actually own a copy of XP64. I do not own a copy of Vista 64 and do not have the funds to buy it at this time, so my only option for 64-bit windows is XP 64 on the mac pro.

    Has anyone successfully made this work? The primary issue seems to be finding Intel 5400 series chipset drivers. Was Apple the only vendor to use said chipset?

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
