Question about Apple iMac 24" Desktop
A good day to all!
I am about tearing my hair out!
I have the new iMac 20 inch 2.4Ghz.
I have installed an original Windows XP into Boot Camp and installed Boot Camp Update 2.1.
When I pop a disc in to run my application (which works fine on my Macbook), it reads EXTREMELY slowly and freezes up.
I am wondering if there are any other updates that I need.
This is a not a Boot Camp - but a cheap way to get Fusion V.2 which is the best run-XP-and-OSX-both-at-one-time program.
1. Do NOT use Parallels software b/c it is slow, clunky, and a memory hog - this is experience speaking :)
2. get a USED copy of VMWare Fusion VERSION 1 (this is not the newest version - but hold on!) from ebay/Amazon whatever - but don't pay over 20.00 (I paid 17.95 shipping included)!
3. Install the older (version 1) VMWare Fusion and then go to the VMWare Fusion website to get a free download of Version 2. They offered this free to all owners of version 1.
Now something to think about. When I had VMWare Fusion 1 on my machine, it literally took 3 seconds to load Windows XP (and some people wonder why I have a Mac!). Upon installing version 2, it takes 10 seconds - and I do not know why!
BTW - make sure this free update is still available http://www.vmware.com/products/fusion/
This works b/c a lot of surplus V1's are being sold cheap. It is s totally legit option b/c the company is offering to any legit owners of version 1.
