    It's totally possible, just insert the win7 lite DVD into the optical slot, and follow the onscreen instructions
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream! Springboard screwy after reboot? Here is the fix

    You could just set your background as BSOD and it'd be close.

    Funny you should say that, I changed the respring png in SBSettings to a BSOD, and also the Safe Mode WP for MobileSubstrate to BSOD as well. Makes my friends go whaa?!

    The jokes are cool, but not everything needs a reason. Some people just want to change things for the fun/shock of it. Lots of people walk around with normal ipads, but your probably only one if you could get xp to run

    Default Nope
    Sorry.

    The CPU in the iPad is not compatible with either XP or windows 7.
    someone would need to re-write the internal HAL for it to work.

    The problem here is that it is literally not possible to do. Yeah it would be tits if someone were able to do it, just for the sake of being able to. However, there is not a way that this will happen. Maybe in like ten years or so, when this is tech history- erm, maybe not lol. Sorry, it isn't possible

    It's just that the insides aren't meant to run such a heavy OS. Yeah XP is very lightweight but iOS is soooo stripped down to the basics so it uses as little memory as possible. But they're getting close, one day it might be possible for other OS's to be installed. But we all know how much Apple would like the idea of that...

    Actually, now that i think about it, VMWare is in the app store, right? If so, one could virtually boot any OS they want. Though one won't actually be installing in the sense of having it in an iOS environment, then turning off and selecting a different OS through the multiboot BL.
