Intel Mac Firmware Update Brings BIOS Support
Apple surprised everyone today when they introduced Boot Camp -- drivers and instructions on how to boot Windows XP on the new Intel Macs.
Along with Boot Camp, Apple has posted firmware updates to all their Intel Macs today. These firmware updates provide EFI with BIOS support, allowing all Intel Macs to boot operating systems such as Windows XP and Linux. This should also allow the Intel Macs to boot upcoming operating systems, such as Windows Vista. The Boot Camp CD which was posted simply provides needed Mac-specific drivers for full support of Windows XP on the Intel Macs.
