i have had broadcom in my laptops for years...never had an issue.

I'm sure it's a solid chip, but that's not the reason why I hate it.

I've always wanted to run NFSMW on a imac/macbook pro. I guess once BAMBIOS is perfected I'll be able to do this.

:/ That picture looks weird. Look at the right side of the XP Bliss wallpaper, why is it cut off like that? (Look at the XP build tag on the bottom it extends further than the wallpaper). Windows XP has only 3 options of wallpaper placement, stretch, tile and center. And none of them would make the wallpaper cutoff like that on the right side. And the angle that it's cut off is awkward too.

Sorry, I know I said this before, but isn't that just his curtain, just like in his other pics?

doesn't prove anything, even if the photo's aren't fake it still can be virtual pc in full screen mode.

I'm pretty sure you can't have a "Found New Device" box in Virtual PC, which I read in a comment somewhere.

You can in VMWare which you can run under linux. Anywho, VPC doesn't run on the Intel macs.

So this guy hasn't proved that this is not a PowerPC iMac G5 running Virtual PC with Windows XP full-screen (including the some of the installation process).

He hasn't taken a screen shot of the Device Manager to show us how the hardware components appear.

Not to be dismissive, but it would be nice to see more proof. I know there are screen shots with the installation appearing to occur with some feedback in an EFI shell, but that doesn't mean it actually finished. He could have had the installation appear, but used Virtual PC on a PowerPC iMac G5 to make it appear as if it finished.

Without posting or responding to messages about how he has done this or when he will give more details about the CSM that he programmed, it makes people more skeptical.

I mean, I could just do something similar like this:

Partially, just the main page, the forums and such are still down. Apparently his host killed his account because of how much of the server resources it was using haha.

Anyway, I'm getting tired of all the discussions of how this could be fake or not, so let me just reiterate again, the VERY VERY VERY simple way to fake this, is just take a screenshot of Windows and make it full screen on OSX, not hard at all, so lets give all the discussions of what VM it could be a rest and just wait for actual news.
