Wow, it must have been a rollercoaster ride for the past month that the PS2 post seems to be most favourite. Thanks for the support!
And once again if you want to contribute an article to me, let me know about it. I’ll give you full credit about it. Since afterall it’s to share the knowledge with everyone.
It must have been a blessing to be able to run different operating system at the same time. Despite Mac of running with Intel processor now, we’ll able to install Windows using our Mac’s hardware. For this example, I’ll share on how you can install Windows Vista onto your Mac that is running Intel processor. We’ll need a copy of Bootcamp version 1.2 which is available for download on Apple’s website. Please ensure that you have at least more than 10gigabyte (10gb) free disk space on your computer.
Upon installing your copy of Bootcamp, launch the program to proceed.
While proceeding towards installing your new operating system, you’ll be asked if you want to create a Window’s Mac Driver CD. Prepare an empty CD-R for this so that after you are done with the Windows installation, you will just need to insert this CD and install it to make Windows recognize all of your hardware. It’s a must since it will also enable the trackpad and Apple Remote to work with Windows Vista.
After you’re done with the drivers CD, you’ll be asked on how much you will allocate for your Windows partition. Note that this partitioning process is so EASY that you have to only drag the column bar in the middle to determine the space you’ll need to allocate.
When you’re done, press ‘Partition’. Please note that to install Windows Vista Home Premium requires at least 8GB of hard disk space.
Upon completion of partitioning, you may now proceed with installing your Windows Vista. Insert the Windows Vista DVD that you have into the DVD Drive.
It will reboot into the installation menu.
Windows Vista installation screen.
Select ‘Install Now’. If you do not have the product key with you now, you may proceed with the 30 days trial.
Select the desired packaged that you have purchased.
Choose fresh install, and the partition that you have just made earlier in bootcamp.
What’s left is to just enjoy. And to remember install the Mac Driver’s CD when you’re done! Enjoy!
Whenever we install an extra operating system or known as O/S inside our Mac, on startup, we can choose on which to boot. This is crucial whenever we feel like to choose over other O/S for some emergency use.
Firstly, we will have to prepare a Mac that has more than one operating system. For this instance, Windows and Mac.
Next, hold down the Option key (alt) before pressing on the power button. Keep the Option key hold even after you release the power button.
Soon not long after that you will be prompt with a menu for you to select which operating system to boot into. Enjoy!
