    I know this isn't ideal for a number of reasons ( chiefly that xp is now defunct). But I'm trying to get XP working on my 2011 MacBook Pro.

    I've not been able to use boot camp as it only supports Windows 7/8. So I created a partition and installed XP there. I figured I could load the drivers from a Mac install DVD as I've seen online, but it won't read the disc from the windows side.

    What are my options from here? Could I put the drivers on a USB?

    Use a virtual machine instead?

    100% agree with this. Just use a VM dude, it eliminates all this extra uneeded work.
