Hi benny, im Nick from germany.

In order to install Windows on a Mac computer you'll need these things:

- Apple Macintosh with Intel Processor
- Windows XP Install CD with Service Pack 2 or higher
- You can also use Windows Vista CD

To get started, you just need to start the mac and do a search for "Bootcamp" in Spotlight (the search in MacOSX, top right corner).

Note: This only works on Mac OSX Leopard, for Tiger its a little more tricky.

Once you started Bootcamp, it will guide you through the process of partitioning your harddrive and installing windows.

If it doesnt work, its probably the fault of the windows install cd. I had to use 3 different versions to get it to work.

If you need additional help, feel free to ask =)

Do you have a phone number for help in installing?


You need to rephrase your question. It's not clear what you are trying to do. Are you trying to watch a movie?. Or install a program or ?. Firefox is a web browser - I don't understand what you mean by "install a DVD for watching"... and why you would use Firefox to do this.

Sounds like you have a Windows exclusive CD. It will not work on Mac OS.
If you have a windows install disk, you can install Windows on your Macbook Pro using Boot Camp via the Boot Camp Assistant located in Applications/Utilities. This will require you to restart and select one desired system to boot up in order to use OS X or Windows.

Alternatively you could run Windows and Mac OS simultaneously with a program such as parallels.

Iam ahmed morad Want Driver For apple macbook A1181 For Win7


You can install Windows 7 on a MacBook using either Apple's Boot Camp, VMWare Fusion, Parallels, or a combination of these.
Once you have finished installing Windows 7, you should shut it down, insert the gray disc #1 that came with your Macintosh, then start up Windows and let the disc contents autorun. This will install Windows drivers for the Apple hardware. If the disc does not autorun, just run it manually from My Computer.

I have windows 7 running thru vmware fusion. i cannot get audio in the windows environment.


If there is is no sound output in Windows 7, simply run Windows Update to update the sound driver from within Windows 7.

If this fails however, try this procedure:
Click 'Start' > Select 'Control Panel' Type troubleshooting in the top-right search field > Select 'Troubleshooting' Click 'Hardware and Sound' > Select 'Playing Audio'
If a driver is needed, it is recommended that you run Windows Updates. If Windows Update doesn't install a driver for your device, go to your computer manufacturer's website and download/install the latest driver for your computer.
If this simple procedure does not help, reply back to this post and let me know.
Thanks!

Forgot password to log on to notebook


  1. i found this floating around, hope it helps, let me know please
Start up from a Mac OS X Install CD (one whose version is closest the the version of Mac OS X installed). You should first disable Open Firmware password protection, if it is enabled. Hold the C key as the computer starts.
  1. Choose Reset Password from the Installer menu (or Utilities menu in Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger). Tip: If you don't see this menu or menu choice, you're probably not started from the CD yet.
  2. Select your Mac OS X hard disk volume.
  3. Set the user name of your original administrator account.
    Important: Do not select "System Administrator (root)". This is actually a reference to the root user. Do not confuse it with a normal administrator account.
