No, I don't think they will, due to limitation in XP.

I do think we'll have a windows install booting before vista though.

Windows Server 2003 support EFI and it's new Partition Tables today (some dell 17x0 servers ship with it configured that way today). I haven't tried it yet, but I suspect that will be the ultimate path to success, not XP.

The lack of support for the common formatted install disks will be the tricky part though.

Sorry to talk about commercial here, but after looking at that site, the first idea came to me that is "I smell smt commercial here", and I do not come back to it again. I think it is the same with some one's blog (whose nick is Computer Guru), he post on his site all of his suggestion about way of hacking OS X but he do not state that all his suggestions clearly and he promote for his site along time on both forum here.
Maybe all them have read something like " how to promote your site/blog and get profits out there.....". Really sad. I think there a new wave of young people want to be the guy that creat the stupid website: million.....com. Media affects all of our life, sometimes in the bad way.

If it is determined impossible to boot Windows on the Mac by March 23, 2006, all donations will be donated to the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

Just to clear the air, Server 2k3 unless it's IA-64 is still dependent on the CSM, and cannot run in a pure EFI environment.

The only way XP will run is the virtualization, regardless of how small it can be (and if I wanted to, it could get very small, but... alas.. too big for $10000).
