Apple "Today Apple announced the MacBook Pro. It has quite a few changes compared to the previous PowerBook. For one, it uses an Intel Core Duo (formally known as Yonah) chip. This is a dual core processor and no, unlike what Steve Jobs stated, this does not have two processors. This will help a lot with responsiveness. I've been dreaming of a dual core laptop for quite a while. However, the realization of my dream coupled with the changes seen makes me cry", writes Unsanity. UPDATE: Windows XP won't run on the new Intel Macs because of EFI. Vista is supposed to work though.

Member since:

NT bootloader uses them to load kernel from disk.

And the kernel itself doesn't require it?

This is unrelated to grub as grub doesn't boot windows, It only has option to daisy call NT bootloader.

True enough, but grub could install interrupts emulating the necessary BIOS functions before invoking the NT loader.
