How do I get my yamaha mg12xu to work with pro tools se on my Mac desktop


The Yamaha MG12XU has no drivers for mac os x, hence it will only work on Windows. You can still use it on your mac, by installing Windows on your mac via Virtualization (VMware Fusion or Parallels Desktop) then download the drivers from here:

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 ;)

Why Should you get Parallel Desktop for Mac A lot of PC users are watching...


Why Should you get Parallel Desktop for Mac



A lot of PC users are watching closely on the growth of popularity on Apple products. Parallels Desktop for Mac provides an awesome alternative - running Windows directly from within Mac OS X.

The developers have tried to create as seamless an experience as possible, incorporating features like Coherence, which let you open a Windows application from the Mac OS X Dock, and SmartSelect, which lets you open Mac documents with Windows applications (and vice versa).

The benefit of this is it is now possible to run various program like Windows XP or Vista on an Apple Mac computer.

With the Parallel Desktop for MAC, it now enables Apple MAC user to use Windows, Linux, and more side by side with MAC OS or any Intel Powered MAC without rebooting.

There’s a lot of benefits Parallel Desktop has to offer and these includes opening windows file with MAC Application and Mac files with Windows Application using parallel SmartSelect. Share files and folders between Windows and MAC.

It’s now possible to browse windows folder and access files without launching windows with Parallel Explorer. Even running selected PC games on Mac with supports to 3D graphics.

These key features give a lot more convenience to Apple Mac users. Imagine running windows like a native Mac application without rebooting.

Parallel not only gives you free-floating Windows apps in its Coherence mode, but it also drops the Windows Taskbar atop the dock (or you can move it to the top of the screen, under the Finder menu bar).

The Parallel includes a set of utilities that lets you do all kinds of interesting things. There's a migration tool (Parallels Transporter); a program that lets you browse a virtual hard drive without actually launch Parallels (Parallels Explorer); a program for managing the size of virtual disks (Parallels Image Tool).

New to a recent upgrade is SmartSelect, which lets you associate file types with applications on the guest operating system.

For example, if someone sends you a Word document via Apple Mail, you can use SmartSelect to designate the Windows version of Word to open the file when you double-click it.

You can also reverse this, so double-clicking files in Windows causes them to be opened in Mac applications. Even for PC gamer, this has been a big breakthrough because for gamers, the biggest advantage Parallels Desktop 3.0 offers is the ability to run games.
Almost all games in the PC space require 3D graphics acceleration, even the casual ones, and up to now, Parallels has not had any 3D graphics acceleration at all.

How to install ubuntu linux apple macbook pro notebook


Safest option would be to purchase a specialised virtualisation software product like paralleles Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac The 1 choice of customers worldwide to run. OR Fusion http://www.vmware.com/au/products/fusion

then download an .iso which is a cd image of Ubuntu
http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/burn-a-dvd-on-mac-osx

the LTS version of Ubuntu stands for long term support, the version that
will most likely work on your mac will be the 64bit version.

I would suggest using a virtualisation program rather than replacing the
mac operating system so that you can be running both mac os and ubuntu
at the same time, without having to shutdown one to access the other.

Hopr this helps.

Opening apps


I assume you running some version of OS X; you did not specify.
A .exe file is a Windows executable (program). It will not run in the Mac OS unless you have Parallels. (Don't feel bad; the Windows people can't run anything for Mac.)
You should be able to double-click on a dmg file and have it mount as a virtual disk drive. First, go to the Finder Preferences and make sure the External disks are included in the items to be shown on the Desktop. If you don't get a new Finder window when you try to open a .dmg file, check your desktop for the disk image icon (it looks like a picture of a white USB external floppy disk drive without a slot on the front). Open that and you should see the files.

Can i take my portable hard drive from my hp desktop and connect it to a mac?


Hello Leean,

You can take the portable hard drive from your HP Desktop. But when you connect your hard drive in Mac machine it will not recognize it. Because the hard have NTFS partition and the Mac operating system will only recognize HFS & HFS+ partition.

You can only use the NTFS partitioned hard drive on Mac machine if it have Parallels OS. Parallels allow you to connect your NTFS partitioned hard drive in mac machine.

How do i install muppet treasure island pc game onto my mac?


While the game itself does not support the Mac OS, there are several solutions.
First, it is possible to install a Windows OS environment on a Mac using Bootcamp. You will need a valid Windows Installation Disc and Serial. Bootcamp is included with Leopard and Snow Leopard. It is also possible to emulate a Windows OS using Parallels Desktop or CrossOver.

I need to know how to install Windows XP on Mac. Thank you!


The easiest, and my personal favorite, is to use Parallels Desktop for Mac:
http://www.parallels.com/products/desktop/

If you're not into desktop virtualization (running an OS inside of another OS at the same time), you can do something called dual boot, in which you'll have the option after you turn the computer on to use either Windows XP or Mac. You'll have to reboot everytime you want to switch, though.

Remember to keep a current backup of your data before attempting a Windows XP installation.

Parallel Desktop on Mac OS X


Ahh - Parallels is working but can't locate the disk image for XP (assuming) that was created by Apple's BootCamp.

Locate the image "disk0.hdd". Once found, copy it to your "Documents/Parallels/My Boot Camp/ " folder (you're logged in on the Mac as jeremybrunelle right ?)

Os x on windows question


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.
