Hi there
The answer to your question is yes and no.

You cannot run OS X on a PC but you can run a windows OS on the new intel macs.

With the new macs you can run it either from boot up in a windows environment (Boot Camp. I would recommend XP not Vista) or you can install an application call 'Parallels' where you can run both systems side by side.

I have both on my portable. There are some windows app's that work better from 'Boot Camp' the only problem with that is you have to shut the mac down and boot to which system you want to use. Where as with Parallels you can drag files and folders from the mac desk top onto the windows. And the switch is really cool.

But you will need to buy a mac. You love it.

Hi,
I think not a free any windows upgrade. But is you are Mac operating system used then may be low cost pay but pay, then your windows upgrade.
I think you not upgrade old os, direct new windows installed or used it.

Thanks,

How can i install windows on an old old mac laptop


You can't - well - depends on which Mac you have.. If it's a relatively recent one with an Intel chip, then you can use BootCamp to boot directly into a Windows OS.. Or you can install VirtualBox and do it that way with the Windows OS running simultaneously with the Mac OS. If it's a non-Intel CPU, then you're out of luck.

Where can I find one ?


Regardless of what you are looking for, my suggestion (to save some dough) is eBay. eBay will have all sorts of Operating Systems for all types of computers, a lot of which you can bid on and win one for cheap or, one that you can buy directly ("Buy Now") option, for cheap.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

You need to download Drivers for your Lexmark X1180 Printer to install it on new computer.
You can download these drivers from here according to your Operating System :



If you are having trouble with these links then you can try Drivers Collection @ driverscollection.com/?H=X1180&By=Lexmark or Silicon Guide as well.

Double operating system


You need to partition your harddrive. Use Boot Camp on a Mac and follow the instructions it gives you.
On Windows use a disk utility program to partition it then once you have done that, boot from the CD of the new OS you want to install and select the new partition.
On a Mac, hold down "Option" to select the OS you want.
Hope this helps!

HI I WANT TO INSTALL WINDOW IN MAC WHICH IS MCA OS X 10.4.11 WHEN I TRIED THE MESSAGE APPEARED BOOT CAMPP EXPIRED. I CHECKED ON APPLE SITE IT EXPIRED IN DEC-2007, IS THERE IN WAY THAT STILL I CAN INSTALL...


Ok I have bad news and good news for you.
1. Apple does not support BootCamp on OS X 10.4 or earlier (You most likely know this)
Good news: Parallels or VMWare Fusion both allow you to install Windows. While it does cost to get these there are some real advantages: like running the Mac OS and Window at the same time, being able to move your files between the OSes, and they should be able to import your old bootcamp setup.
Hope this helps.

Mother board cd


no, to format you just need OS CD, such as windows, Linux, Mac or others
motherboard CD is only contain the driver to run system of it including sound card, Video, Lan, modem, PCMCIA, or any components on your computer....
except your motherboard vendor gives you one more CD's, it called "recovery CD's".
recovery CD's is back up CD of your OS from the vendor, it including first OS, and motherboard driver also, so if you have it, you just have to boot the recovery CD,...no need to using OS CD

Mac OS X 10.4 Installation problem


If your computer ejects the Mac OS X 10.4 Installation DVD, it means that there's a good chance that your Mac doesn't have an Apple internal DVD drive or an Apple SuperDrive, you'll need Mac OS X 10.4 Install CDs.

If your mac is unable to read the CD or ejects it also, there's something wrong with your DVD\CD drive.
