Nice writeup. When I did mine. It clobbered my HFS_ partition. I hadda boot from my external drive. Reformat the partition and reclone.

Might want to add a disclaimer about backing up your HFS+ partition first.

Also you'll want to let them know that it will be normal for those undetected devices. ie. the Power management and IR

How many question marks are you guys seeing in Device Manager after installing all the Mac drivers? I currently have two.

I also have another problem. The time is always wrong when I start Windows. I'll correct the time and sync it with the time.nist.gov server. Then on the next restart it will go three hours ahead. Does anyone else have this problem?

I'm seeing 3 unidentified.

1 x USB (IR)
1 X Unkown Device
1 X PCI

I think the rest is is the power management. I read that in the OSx86 project forums.

As for the time. It would seem that XP and MacOS store/interpret the data a different way. I would just install a service that will reset the time to a ntp server everytime on bootup.

You might confirm that the time zone selection in WinXP control panel is set correctly. This could definitely set the time ahead or behind by X hours.

Did everything but reboot before running Mac Drivers CD so it hung on registering. Keyboard is the Apple 109-key USB and mouse is Mighty Mouse.
I am seeing IR was warned in Device Manager Hardware.
Also a couple of unknown PCI devices.
