    Looking to find if it is possible to mod bios for OEM XP install with VMWare Fusion 2 install on OS X?

    If not how about bootcamp OEM XP install?

    Thanks

    Regina's Dell bios doesn't work with XP, as I found out after a lot of head scratching. I'd use the Lenovo version as they are a lot less fussy about the location of the SLP strings. Vista is fine with all of the versions btw.

    Thanks, I got both XP and Vista x64 to install and work.

    Any idea on how to install for BootCamp. Is there a bios on a mac?

    Hi everyone, this is my first post!:)

    In my case I would like to load my HP bios in VMWARE but I canĀ“t.

    Do you know what parameters could I modify to get it work?

    Thank you.
