That's completely unbelievable.

I'm writing this as I'm downloading the Boot Camp beta, but I just can't believe it.

I will probably still not believe it when Windows is running on my iMac smile

I have installed it a few minutes ago, and it works fine... Even my 23" cinema display works in resolutions other than the native 1920x1200 (well, boxed in the centre of the screen, but the XOM.EFI/www.onmac.net solution would freak out and simply go out sync...)...

I love this. Especially for games (not emus, but PC games, which is about the only reason to use Windows, imo).

Need more impressions! smile

BTW, anyone watching Apple's stock price? It's up almost 9.5% today. Has been going up over 1% per hour the entire day. eek

Details guys, details!!!

Let us know how it turns out!!


One of my long time classmates is a member of Apple's OS programmer team. He NEVER mentioned anything about this!! Only hint he gave when he visited recently was that very soon the Mini's will all be Intel based. Couldn't get anything else much out of him though...

It works exactly as advertised - very slick too smile

I'm not a fan of the whole dual boot concept in the slightest but there's a couple of things that i could use it for, so seeing as you can back it all back out using the same boot camp software, i figured i could spare 20GB to see how it goes!

Nothing to really benchmark it against yet since all i do in Windows is old legacy stuff these days.

Maybe i'll install X Beyond the frontier? Should eat that for breakfast i guess.

Nice one Apple (i think!).

Now all i'm waiting for is VMWare to boot the partition without rebooting. Then it'll be REALLY cool.

Oh, DEFINATELY worth mentioning that i'd have been out of luck had it not been for having a windows laptop with a CD burner kicking about!

The volume license MSDN DVD that i normally use for this kind of thing presents you with a boot menu asking you which version of Windows you wish to install from the DVD. When i tried to select XP SP2 as per the instructions from Apple i couldn't since the keyboard doesn't work at that stage - doh!

Had to go upstairs burn the ISO of the non-volume license CD and install from that. No biggie, but it did throw me for a little while.
