  1. Handoff possible at bt 3.0?

    For what it's worth I have bluetooth 4.0 on my machine and I can't get Handoff working at all. I do not have wifi in this machine, so maybe that is the issue. But I'm guessing that features is still flakey in DP1 regardless of bluetooth version.
  2. installing and booting from FW HD

    ahh gotcha, yeah I suppose there is always that solution too. Thanks
  3. installing and booting from FW HD

    Can you expand on what you did in a bit more detail? what did you accomplish? are you booting XP from an external FW HD?
  4. Anyone tried this yet? it'd be helpful so I dont have to wipe my HD since its a production machine.
  5. I GOT MY INTEL IMAC TODAY!!!

    cool thanks. and as far as gettign a dual boot its probably as simple as making a custom .efi to replace the one on the os x HD partition, or the one in the fat32 partiton if thats how its done. A custom one to either hand off to elilo as a bootloader or a custom boot loader with an option to pick which OS. I doubt all that is easy to program though, but hopefully someone with enough EFI knowledge can hack something together. what really gets my goat though, is i bet apple already has windows bootable on their machines, using the retail firmware, .efi stuff. but can't or wont relase any info cause of business, which is fine, but still frustrating.
  6. I GOT MY INTEL IMAC TODAY!!!

    yeah thats kinda what i was trying to say with my last post. swap the .efi file on the vista cd to the name and perhaps even location is the same as the os x cd. although this still leaves open the issue of installing to HD and dual booting, but it'd be a step forward. again since i havent an intel mac, this is just guess work. What kind of format is the .efi anyway? human readble? like a lilo.conf file?
  7. I GOT MY INTEL IMAC TODAY!!!

    So I've been following this issue and learning about EFI for a week or so, and I've got a question. wouldnt it be as simple as running the sample efi shell from Intel then pointing it to another .efi file to boot the windows partition? I havent an intel mac yet, waiting for a macbook I have on order, but ti seems to me, we just need to basically replace or edit the .efi file on the os x partition to either boot to the shell or boot to another partition. but maybe it isnt that simple.
