How to run MS Windows on a MAC computer?

Hi guys,

Today I will show you how to run the Windows operating system on your mac laptop or desktop.

Step 1:
It is a simple process but will require some software which you will need to download and please make sure you have enough storage minimum should be 6 GB for the windows setup to install otherwise it will NOT work.

Step 2:
Ok first of all you will need to install Parallels Desktop which works like VM-Ware but it is for MAC so its different it ritualizes both of the OS so you can choose to use both on your mac without the need of Boot Camp.

Step 3:
It is very simple you will just need the Windows ISO file or a disc copy. Than what you will need is Parallels that you can get from the following site: http://pctrickstips.com/download-parallels-desktop-11-for-mac-full-free/

It supports both x86 and x64 environments so do not worry about anything else if you need any further help ping me up and I will be more than happy to help.

Happy Virtualisation ;)

I have windows 7 Home Premium and want Windows 10. How do I download and run it?


You should see a notification icon (the 4-square) in the bottom right taskbar like this image. you will only be offered it if you have a genuine registered copy of Windows that is eligible for upgrade.

You can also access via the Microsoft Windows 10 website.

The power come on but the harddrive will not boot since there is nothing shows on the screen. The screen is blank, no apple sign, no sping gears. pls what do i do,and my mac os that comes with the system is bad.


With regards to the blank screen, this usually indicates an issue with the hard drive being faulty (hardware) or the OS might have corrupt system files (software).
These are the items you will need before we begin:
A. Mac desktop/laptop B. Mac OSX Installation DVD
A. Software Related
1. Power on the Mac computer/laptop and immediately press and hold the option key. 2. After about 15 seconds of holding the option key, release it and insert the Mac OSX DVD. 3. The DVD should load and display on-screen (along with any additional drives available on the system). 4. If the hard drive icon appears, then click on it. (if the hard drive boots the OS, then the issue is software related. Skip down to Section B, step #1). 5. If the hard drive did not appear, then the system does not recognize it. However, the DVD icon should have appeared, click on it. 6. The DVD will boot and begin the installation process. 7. Follow the installation prompts. 8. Once completed, the desktop/laptop will reboot and after logging in, will execute the registration process. 9. Complete the registration exercise and access the desktop. 10. Perform a software update and download all system and application updates to their latest versions.

If the hard drive did not appear, then the system does not recognize it. However, the DVD icon should have appeared, click on it. 6. The DVD will boot and begin the installation process. 7. Close the installation application and select "Disk Utility" from the "Utilities" menu option. 8. When Disk Utility loads, look to the left-hand pane and locate your hard drive (if detected). If so, click on it and format the hard drive then reboot and skip up to Section A, step #1. If the hard drive is not detected, then the hard drive has malfunctioned and needs to be replaced.
Hard drive's cost from $40-100 for sizes ranging from 40GB to 1TB. Once the hard drive has been replaced, you can install OSX from the installation DVD.

i do not my computers oprated


Hi,
You have easily operate your computer. The steps given below....

Materials Needed:
- CPU
- keyboard
- monitor
- mouse
- speakers
- printer
- Operating System Step 1 :- Prior to powering up the computer system, make sure that the power cord is firmly connected to the back panel of the CPU and is plugged into the wall socket. Step 2 :- Check if the video cable is firmly screwed to the port of the video card with the other end connected to the back panel of the monitor. Step 3 :- Make sure that both the keyboard and mouse pointing device are securely plugged to the back panel. Also, check if they are connected to the correct port by checking on the markings. Steps 1 to 3 are essentially easy to do because aside from the mouse and keyboard devices, other components can only be plugged into their proper ports preventing the novice user from interchanging them. Step 4 :- When all connections are secure, start up the machine by pressing the power button normally located in the front panel of the CPU. Step 5 :- Depending on the configuration of the machine, a username and password may be requested; otherwise, the Operating System may be loaded directly to display the desktop to the user. Step 6 :- Other basic operations that can be done include adjusting monitor settings in Step 8. Installation and launching of software is outlined in Step 10. Navigation of the file system is detailed from Step 15. Step 7 :- The proper way to shut down or turn off the computer system is by clicking on the “Start” button and choosing the “Turn Off Computer” option. This will display the options to “Standby”, “Restart”, or “Turn Off” the machine. Step 8 :- To adjust the monitor settings, right click on any blank portion of the desktop and select the “Properties” option from the context menu. Step 9 :- On the “Display Properties” window, select the “Settings” tab to adjust the resolution of the screen. The “Themes” tab will allow the loading of pre-designed Windows themes. The “Desktop” tab provides the way for changing the color of the desktop as well as the displayed wallpaper. The “Appearance” tab provides the various options of changing the behavior of the windows, icons, and other elements of the platform, while the “Screen Saver” tab shows the option to allow the monitor to go on standby or display animation. Step 10 :- To extend the functionality of any computer system, software is normally installed into the local hard drive. A software installer may be through some media like a CD or DVD or from being downloaded from the Internet. Step 11 :- For CD or DVD installers, insert the installation disk in the CD or DVD drive of the machine. This will be automatically read and launched by the Operating System. Step 12 :- When the installation process is initiated, a new window will normally be displayed to the user. Majority of newer installers provide either a default or an advanced installation procedure. In most cases, simply click on the default process to allow the installer to complete the entire process with minimum user intervention. Step 13 :- Upon completion of the installation process, a user may be prompted to reboot the machine. Follow the guide in Step 7 to accomplish this task. Step 14 :- To launch the software, simply click on the “Start” Menu, choose “All Programs” and select from the menu the program intended to be run. An alternative to this process is to check if a shortcut link is created on the Desktop. Clicking this icon will also launch the associated program Thanks
