Hiya guys, I know this topic has been covered countless times and by various users who'd like to install the regular English versions of Windows XP on their beloved Macs. However, this is different and I need a little help, possibly from a expert. So, what's the problem? Well, I wanna install Windows XP Pro (Japanese native version) on a MacBook Pro as a bootcamp partition. However the Windows installer is different in a way it doesn't see any of the other drive partitions and it doesn't report the drive specifications correctly. If I proceed from this point, I'll lose the OSX along with any other partitions that's on the drive (not shown)... And, once installed Windows refuses to boot! Perhaps it's because the 200Mb hidden boot partition (created by bootcamp) is missing?? So... does anyone have a work around for this? FYI: I've already installing the US/UK version, then installing the optional Japanese language packs but my application won't install. On execution, I get errors regarding the Windows Language is incorrect. Sadly, it looks like it's gotta be a native Japanese version. I've also tried installing the OS via VMware and worked without a glitch, the USB drivers installed along with some of the other utilities, however my hardware won't mount and Lismo port halts - renders VMware alternative useless. Hmm.. doesn't anyone know a workaround?
