      cool. if real, i'd be interested in knowing how you got around the EFI issue.

      Narf2006, wanted to make sure you are aware of the SHIFT+F10 functionality within the GUI part of the setup that launches a command prompt - could be beneficial in your testing.

      ^ No. I've installed XP with 1280x1024.

      No he's right - you can set an option in the unattend.sif file so the resolution jumps to whatever you like once its installed the VGA drivers, but this section always runs at 640x480

      I did a fresh install with a new sp2 disc and got a 1280x1024 install.

      No further pictures, so I assume this didn't end up working? Pity.

      Any word narf on if XP booted after the install screen? We're all anxiously awaiting your results, and not hearing an update after being so close makes me worry that there are major problems with XP on the Intel Mac AFTER the install. I know you don't wanna risk blowing the contest, but at least let us know how you're doing! Best of luck!

      How come people who have the technical know-how to get Windows to boot on a Mac don't ever seem to have the capacity to work their own digital cameras?

      What do we have here? XP installing on a G5 iMac using VMWare? ; )

      So you have an iMac, a digital camera, and the know-how to get XP working on this hardware, but you can't take a decent picture or put up a 10 second video? This is a $12,000 contest for gods sake! BS.

      So as a test I started XP in VPC n my Powerbook in full screen mode and went to my new MacBook Pro started Apple Desktop remote loged into my powerbook and viewed the other machine in fullscreen mode, and there is is XP running on a Intel Mac its that simple, I could take a screen shot or all the phony pictures or video I want. Lets hope this is not the case here.

      FAKE-Even with the newly distributed Video. You know why? Simple: there's $12,000 for the first guy to clearly explain step by step how to install XP. This guy magically finds how to do it one night in his bedroom (even though tons of experts haven't been able to), then waits 5 days and still no hurry to be the first to win the race and claim the $12k.

      Yeah, right.

      uhm, if you followed the forum where all this is happening. they don't just give away the money cause there's testing to do. the contest's host is currently testing it with 3 people from each machine. once it's confirmed that the solution works, then the money moves.

      and i don't think he does it overnight. from what i've seen, he's been posting for a while about the progress he's having.

      I take it all back, and sorry for doubting you! Great job, and congrats on the win.

      Hmm. Is a photo of a Mac running XP grounds for tagging it "may offend?" Just wondering. ;)
