I tried installing XP directly onto my new Alu MB yesterday and it didn't work ofcourse, just got stuck during the XP install. The thing is that I do not need Leopard OSX at all, I just want Windows XP (please spare me the "why buy MB if.." questions) But as far as I can see is windows Dependend on OSX and bootcamp being installed? after installing XP with bootcamp there is 4 partitions as show here [img=http://img211.imageshack.us/img211/2376/partition.jpg] GPT partition 200mb OSX partition 18.8GB unallocated partiton 129mb .. what's this? XP partition 129GB what would happen if I deleted the 19GB OSX partition and the 129mb whatever it is partition? and just left the GPT and XP partition. Would the computer boot? or would that be a nono?
