Apple Computer Guru has a theoretical solution to the Intel-Macs-Won't-Boot-Windows problem. All you need, according to him, is a set of Acronis applications, a clean install of Windows XP on another computer, Vista boot files, bcdedit, a Windows Vista DVD, and of course an Intel Mac. Please note that all of his ideas are pure theory, as he does not own a MacBook Pro or Intel iMac. Someone who does should try to verify this.

Some people on here might wonder why dual boot. Well I can tell you for one I will not buy one of the new apple's until I know for a fact they will dual boot windows. Why? Well I am a software developer who develops software target at the military. Most military computers run windows, so I want the capability of developing and testing on Windows, bit on the other hand I prefer MacOSX over WinXP for everyday use. Me personnaly I can't wait until VMware and Wine are ported to the new platform.
