Title says it all, is it still possible to run bootcamp on a Macbook running tiger?

If so, where do I get it if it is not already downloaded?

Thanks.

Eh, you can. You just have to turn the clock back in order to use it.

VersionTracker or similar sites have it, and as 64stang06 said, you just need to roll your clock back to use it.

Here's the issue that comes to my mind: What do you mean by "still run Boot Camp." Once the drive is partitioned and Windows is installed, and you install the drivers the come with Boot Camp, Boot Camp is out of the picture-it's a utility, not an emulator.

Now if the question was "will my Windows installation, handled through Boot Camp, still boot and run?" then the answer is 100% YES. If instead the question was "can I use the Boot Camp utility to create or delete a Windows partition?" then the answer is NOT unless you fool it into thinking that it's before the expiration of the beta. Note the link in 64stang06's post if you want to just remove a Windows partition in Tiger. I have ethical issues in both directions about using the beta now that it is no longer licensed.

I'm not quite sure what you mean. If you're talking about the fact that I didn't know which direction the OP meant his question, then how was I rude? And this is a "technical forum," so how would being technical be rude? I'm confused.

I think you know what he meant by Boot Camp... It's a yes or no question...

With the number of people posting here who state that they think BC IS an emulator, NO, I don't assume such posters mean one thing or the other-thus my question...

And it's NOT a "yes or no question." The OP's question was "Is Bootcamp still possible in Tiger?" This leaves just about every potential interpretation of "possible" open. I gave up trying to read minds a long time ago because I was so bad at it. I ask when I don't have absolutely clear data to work on.
