When i got my first Macintosh computer, it was Powerbook G4, I went straight, open my CD bag and brought out all my favorite games i used to play on my windows PC. I insected the disc into my machine and got this awful message, “ This program cannot run in DOS mode”. I tried and tried but to no avail. I then went to search engines and found out that Mac does not work that way. It is impossible to run windows program directly on Mac. I really went crazy.
But as at now, i have all my windows applications on my Mac and enjoying life. Having windows on Mac is indeed an awesome experience. So i am here to help you to also install windows on your Mac with ease. So without further ado, let me move straight to the point.
Basically, there are two ways to install windows operating system on your Mac. We have the BootCamp method and the Virtualization method.
If your OS X includes BootCamp which is from Apple, the you can install windows on your Mac. You can choose any version of windows such as Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 etc. to install on your Mac. I have an article about BootCamp which takes you through all the processes you need to use BootCamp to install windows on Mac.I have posted all the useful article at the bottom of this article o you can click on the article to read how to use BootCamp after reading this article.
Virtualization is all about software from third parties. Virtualization software allow you to install windows on your Mac and use both at the same time. But one disadvantage of using these software is the speed. Windows will not run normal on Mac when using Virtualization software. The speed is going to be decrease but it depends on the software you are going to use.
The three leading Virtualization software are Parallels Desktop, VMWare Fusion and Virtual Box. Unfortunately these three software are not free. Whiles others like Q, Bochs are free to use.
Now i also have an article on Virtualization Software for Mac and i have also posted it at the bottom of this article with other useful articles so when you finish reading this article you can click on them to read.
Now that you know the two best methods of installing windows operating system on your Mac, you can now decide the method you want to use to install windows on your Mac.
But mind you, BootCamp can be used on only intel-based Macs not PPC(PowerPC). So check your Machine information and see the type of processor your Mac is using. You check this by clicking on the apple Menu and selecting, “About this Mac”.
If you have PowerPC(PPC) then you can’t use BootCamp and you have to use Virtualization Software.
