Intel-based Macs to runWindows XP or not?

Posted on Friday, January 13 2006 @ 23:05:04 CET by


Yesterday we reported it may not be possible to run Windows XP on Apple's Intel-based MacBook Pro notebooks and iMac computers because Windows XP doesn't feature support for EFI but according to new information it may be possible:
However, Intel Australia, while being careful not to comment on Apple’s hardware specifically, says motherboards based on the Intel 945 chipset already support EFI and can boot Windows with no problems.

This cryptic statement can’t be taken as full reassurance though: it may be that 945 boards support EFI but do not come with it installed by default.

Officially, Microsoft says it will support EFI natively with Windows Vista, so it’s almost certain that Intel-based MacBook Pros and iMacs will be able to boot Vista when it is released later this year.

But a year is a long time in computing and there would be great utility for many users in a notebook that could run Windows XP during work time and OS X at home, or one that could easily be rebooted to Windows to play the latest games.
