    OK, so today my friend sort of challenged me if i can install Windows XP on AppleTV. He said he's 200% sure it can't be done. Considering...

    1. NO VT-x Support. (Parallel and VirtualBox won't run.. in terms of, on the documents provided, it *can't* run.. right.. -.- )
    2. NO BIOS in the EFI.
    3. 256MB RAM.

    I decided to take the challenge ($50 bet) and guess what...

    Its NOT usable. Again, its dead slow. Just to prove its possible. I can post the instructions if anyones interested.
