Circular Reference: OS X inside VirtualPC on a MacBook using Boot Camp?

Not to start a holy war on why you'd want to / not do this, but ... I wonder if you can get a MacBook Pro using BootCamp booted to Windows XP then run Virutal PC to boot OS X inside the Windows VPC?

Now that would be interesting, and kind of cool to run both OS X side by side with XP! Practial uses, probably not much. But an interesting academic experiment.

    Nope. Mac OS X on Intel requires EFI, and likely other special bondo which Apple has used to glue it to their hardware. Unless something has changed internal to VPC, it only supports BIOS-based operating systems – meaning Mac OS can’t install, let alone boot.
