So I've read for hours on this. I have done this with my old iMac a few times. My recently acquired Lion machine will work, but no drivers work. This is what I am doing. I know Lion doesn't support XP. So I create a 100gb partition in disc utility. I install XP. I boot in XP. This is where it all goes to hell. More like nowhere, actually. I have a Snow Leopard bare OS installation disc, the 29-30 dollar one. I DO NOT have the grey factory discs, they were lost in moving a few weeks ago (from my old Leopard iMac discs). I hope they weren't thrown out. I install the drivers from the Snow Leopard disc. Reboot in XP. Nothing works any different than before. I dont know why. I installed XP, then erased and installed again. The drivers on the Snow Leopard disc simply didnt do a damn thing. I'm kicking myself because I either lost or threw out my copy of the original disc divers you downloaded (back 5 years ago) just a few weeks back. Thats how I got it on the last several times, never a issue. Can anyone verify if the Snow Leopard disc I have is a useful copy for this. There is absolutely no reason, as far as I could imagine, why Lion on the mac side would interact at all with the XP partition. This should work, but doesnt. I have read that the gray factory Leopard discs work, NOT the Snow Leopard disc I have. And the drivers link on apples site is an update, NOT a original. So dont send that link as the solution to the problems. Any input is appreciated. I should be unpacking my **** next week, I have already looked in most places, I fear the worst. If I find this disc, I am getting it online ASAP. I fear the worst, though.
