Vista on Intel iMac; Boot Camp Passes Muster in Speed Tests

Windows Vista is now running on the new Intel-based Macs. “Managed to get Windows Vista installed today, with a bit of creative thinking. You see, Vista does not support Boot Camp’s partitioning. There are some complex ways around this, but just to prove it can be done I booted from an XP CD, deleted the existing partitions and formatted the entire internal HD with NTFS. Once that’s done, you can reset the iMac and insert your Vista DVD before the XP setup starts installing XP.” In the meantime, CNet performed some tests, and concluded that Apple hardware is just as good at running Windows as any other x86 system. Ars reviews Boot Camp as well.
