Does Mountain Lion's bootcamp (ver 5.0.0) support Windows XP Home? If not, can I run Windows XP Home after installing VMware Fusion 5?

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    No.  Boot Camp requires Windows 7, and I believe the 64 bit version at that.


    VMware Fusion does support Windows XP.  It's possible Windows XP home could be a problem because I think Microsoft limits the licensing of XP Home and may prohibit use in a virtual machine.  I can't answer Microsoft Licensing questions
