    Hey Geoff. Have you had a look at the Matrox MXO? Just wondering if it can be used?

    Anybody?

    NX Express + Mac Pro 8 Core

    When you run boot camp it makes a driver disk that installs Windows drivers for all the Mac hardware. Although just when I think the people in the Mac store are'nt total jerks I get proven wrong. I went in tonight to buy the FCS 2 upgrade and I happen to ask when you upgrade to wireless N if the windows drivers are there too (like in bootcamp) and all I got from the "Genius bar" was attitude. A simple "I dont know"would have sufficed.

    You don't have any yellow exclamation marks in device manager when you run XP through bootcamp? Since Apple does not use BIOSes, I thought some hardware would not be fully found.

    It should worik, the only reason id be concerned is the incompatability between Macdrive and Edius. you would have to edit and save your projects on a Windows partition. But if you want to buy all the hardware and ship it to me id be HAPPY to test it out for you:)
