Intel Macs May Boot Windows XP After All

While we’ll have to wait till someone actually tries it to get absolute confirmation, news coming from Intel in Australia, reported here by Dan Warne in the Australian Personal Computer magazine, is that the new Intel-based Macs may be able to load and boot Windows XP after all. Several of the early stories after the announcement of the MacBook Pro and the Intel-based iMac assumed that Windows XP would not boot on Intel Macs, since XP doesn’t support EFI (replacing BIOS in the new Macs), and Apple’s statement that they wouldn’t prevent the use of XP on Apple hardware didn’t really give people much assurance either way. This statement from Intel implies that there is really no issue.
