We're still a little dubious about this one, but word is out that one narf2006 has successfully installed Windows XP on an Intel iMac, has gotten it to boot (despite the EFI issue, and apparently after extensive hacking), and is now asking for volunteers to test his process on other Intel-based Macs. And that last bit is really what has us thinking this may be more than just the latest Photoshop art project. Sure, narf may be hoping that a share of the $12,000 he stands to win in the XP on Mac contest could convince some other Mac owners to help him perpetuate a fraud. But this is starting to look like it just might be real, blurry pics and all.
