Ok. I wanted to know if i could put the mac OS on my hp notebook dv1000 as wellas keeping my windows xp. I've heard of partitioning my hard drive but im not sure if thats a good idea. I mean, what does it do? make the opposite partition hidden Like if i was running xp would it make the mac partition invisible, untouchable and uneditable? I just want the mac os as well as xp. Is it possible? If so how does it work (booting wise)? Do i need to mod my laptop in anyway? Does it make either OS work slower? Do i need any special software? I dont want to edit any system files or do something irreversable! And finally can i take off the mac OS and partition at any time if i decide i dont want it? And would the mouse make a difference (left+right click insted of one click). Any good links, info, noob tutorials, expierences of doing this etc. would be very highly apreciated! Thanks so much if anyone replies!
