Post Work With Mac?
I'm trying to get windows xp onto a mac with a broken disk drive. Will this software make this possible or no? If so how?

Does that mean that you haven't tested it yet or that it varies or what?

I know the mac can only boot usb drives when they're the journaled format which isn't compatible with a PC. Will the WinToFlash allow you to bypass this or is there a way to get the files onto a journaled format?

Regardless if you have any idea how I can get WinXP onto my computer (not via emulation box) without a working disk drive I'll love you forever. Seriously I'll print out your name/avatar/whatever and frame it on my wall, I've been struggling with this for months.

We haven't test WinToFlash with MACs.

WinToFlash can format only to FAT16 CHS/LBA and FAT32 CHS/LBA.

If you can boot OS X (you probably can), just plug the USB drive in.
Then open System Preferences and choose Startup Disk. Click on the USB Drive and hit reboot.

Please note that you need an Intel Mac with Boot Camp so you have the drivers and can partition correctly w/o killing OS X.

Make sure that you format the USB as FAT32 and not some other file system. Macs don't natively support NTFS anyway.

(No guarantees, I don't have a Mac. Just typing from memory)
