Booting WinXP on intel Macs: One step closer?
Obviously (although not to those dorks who tried to "put a Windows CD in the drive and press C"), the EFI in intel Macs doesn't out-of-the-box support booting Windows XP installation CDs. But this shows
that one can enter the EFI by actually installing an intel default EFI thingie (not really my field, sorry...). But one shouldn't mistake the blurry pictures for the actual EFI shell Apple has put inside the intel Macs. Apparently, what you see there is what's loaded from the intel-EFI software that first has to be installed in order to get there. Either way: One can actually _see_ a Windows Vista installation from that menu. What's needed now, apparently, are drivers for the EFI to be able to boot from those Windows drives etc. I'm pretty sure we'll hear more about this in the coming weeks.
