Default Xp and OSX - 12-23-2009, 01:12 AM

Now correct me if im wrong, but for all intents and purposes all you need to do is resize the xp partition, create a new partiton (format at +hfs if you can) boot up SL, install SL (MBR), run RC5, and everything should work? it sounds too good to be true

Sharing is Caring!

I followed these instructions:My XP/OSX Dual-Boot Saga, with a Happy Ending! with success.
Wipe the disk clean, install SL (USB), partition the disk, install XP (DVD). And don't forget to do this:My XP/OSX Dual-Boot Saga, with a Happy Ending!.
It runs very well!
