I have Virtual PC 7 and would like to use Bootcamp on my MacBook.

My question - is there a way for me to get Win XP out of VPC and into Bootcamp?

I have been successful using the virtual machine from VPC with Fusion, but want to try Bootcamp.

If I can't do this, will somebody please look into your crystal ball and tell me where my WinXP install disks are :confused: :confused:

Thanks, Margaret

It's a full conventional install on new hardware ... you'll need XP install media.

Now, as for the crystal ball gazing .... I've got something ... it's ... no, wait ....
There it is!

I can see you finding your XP Install disks in the very last place you look ;-)

Sadly, I fear my install disks were in the pocket of that old winter coat I threw out. The coat that had the winning 6/49 ticket in the other pocket :D :D

Household hint - when moving, grab every CD, every cord, every wall wart, every dongle, every pen, pencil and your electric tooth brush and seal them all in a box and put it in the trunk of your car BEFORE your friends show up to "help" you pack :D :D :D

I moved in July and I'm still looking for stuff that I know was in the cupboard with other stuff that I unpacked the first day. Sort of like going shopping without leaving home.
