Did he use the OS X cd to install the XP drivers? Install DirectX runtime? Update GPU drivers?

He's a mac guy. He doesn't know about that stuff.

The "Mac hardware" is Intel hardware including the motherboard so any problems he is having are due to his XP install and not the hardware itself. Did he use the OS X cd to install the XP drivers? Install DirectX runtime? Update GPU drivers?

The hardware is almost exactly the same as a standard PC nowadays. I've played tons of games on the Boot Camp side, though honestly I wish more games would get ports to Mac OS X, and not two years after the original release...

A coworker has an Intel-based Mac with OSX and XP installed. He can boot into either. Unfortunately when he boots into XP he hasn't been able to get a lot of PC games to run, and he doesn't know why. My wild guess is it has something to do with Apple's hardware.
