There are several antivirus for the Mac, but I don't know someone who knows someone that uses one. Viruses on the Mac are rare, because there don't exist "autoplay", neither "autoexec". All processes are "permission based", that is, the user must give permission to install software on the Mac.

Mac osx tiger install disc


You cannot install Mac OS onto a PC without an illegal hack (illegal because the End User License Agreement say the user agrees NOT to install the OS on a non-Mac computer).

Other than that, more information is needed to know how to address your issue.

If you did a clean install on the whole volume, you wiped your Tiger installation. The best bet is to install your preffered operating system first. When you do it, partition the drive into two of about equal size. Install the other OS into the other patition and have a menu to start the wanted OS when you turn on the computer. You will have to do some research on dual boot computers.

Windows


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 =)

Drive Not Read By ANY Computer


Hi,
Before installing the Maxtor drive you need to take a backup of the software on the Maxtor. You then need to burn this s/w to a cd to allow you to install the s/w onto any Mac (or PC) you want to use the Maxtor with. If you don't enable the encripted mode then you don't have this problem.

If you didn't take a backup before starting then have a look on the Maxtor site for the correct s/w.
Cheers, robbo
