Apple Some more news on Apple's Intel Macs. First off, contrary to what OSNews reported on yesterday, a research and investment firm says that sales of the Intel iMac and MacBook Pro are good. Secondly, a contest has been set up to get Windows XP to boot on the Intel Macs.

Grub won't help out WinXP to recognise EFI... Windows surely still use some real mode BIOS call during the boot process. I guess you'll have more chance by writting a plugin for the EFI that emulate a BIOS.

EFI is greatly extensible, but still I would have like it to create a revolution and to permit low-level driver, so we could have wrote code like used to do in real mode but directly in protected mode...

A question? Are the Mactel booting in protected mode? This would be awesome. If so I want one ;)
