I tried it and it works but is slower than native.

1.) Download a version of CherryOS
2.) Get jaguar isos and tiger isos
3.) install CherryOS
4.) install jaguar on CherryOS
5.) Update jaguar to tiger
6.) Create a new windows account
7.) disable all the font smoothing etc. in windows.
8.) Open CherryOS in preferences choose "Launch Cherry os in fullscreen" and make sure the box beside it is checked
9.) Log out of that osx account and close Cherry aswell
10.) Open the start menu and drag cherry os from the cherry os folder to the "startup" folder
11.) reboot your computer
12.) now when you open your account you enter osx. and the other you enter Xp. bu t you might want to get a login loader from osx-e.com so when you log in you don't see any of the windows desktop.

Thats not a True dual Boot, your just running the program at start.

CherryOS (I was positive this program died a long time ago after the controversey over it illegally stealing from PearPC among other programs) emulates PPC so its going to be a lot slower than running in VMWare and definitely slower than running it natively. Not to mention its supporting a shady developer there are a lot better ways to do this that aren't much harder.

Ewww , CherryOS , you call that an emulator , screw it....PearPC is the real thing , I hate that very much. Please use PearPC instead of CherryOS because CherryOS ripped PearPC.

I saw your nick replying to this thread and I knew exactly what you were going to say already :blink:

That said, I completely agree. Not only is CherryOS a rip, it's *worse* than PearPC. Ironic.
