    friends
    I have iMac intel based 27" model, it came with SL pre-installed and 2 disc, 1 is SL and the other one is Application,
    So i want to know can i install windows xp or not, if yes then from where i can get its drivers?
    if not
    Then there will be only option left which is Windows 7 and the same question is about drivers.
    Please try to give the solution to install Windows XP because i have the original disc of it
    Thanks

    I don't think Windows XP runs on 2011 Macs. I know it doesn't run on 2011 Macbook Pros, not sure about iMac though.

    Do you need to run it natively? It runs fine under VirtualBox, which is free.

    XP will not run on a current iMac using Boot Camp. Boot Camp will ONLY support Windows 7. However you can still run XP if you get Parallels or VMWare Fusion.
