Possibilty to use 100% of the hard disk for Windows?

Hello everybody,

is there a possiblity to install and use Windows XP on a MacMini with 100% disk usage? Now I have a partition for MacOSX and with Boot Camp a Windows XP NTFS partition. If I delete the MacOSX partition the Windows XP won't boot anymore.

Kind Regards,
CoDeX

No, it is not possible since you'll always need BootCamp to emulate the BIOS. There are ways to boot up Winodws (and especially Linux) without emulating the BIOS, but at least for Windows that is more then experimentell.

Have you got a link to the way without emulation the BIOS? Or some research on it?
