Windows XP for Macbook

I am a tad confused on purchasing windows xp (needed for work) to install on my Macbook. Do I need to purchase a special one for Mac or is it just the normal Microsoft Windows XP at any retail store?

I need a product key number for installing windows xp sp3 soft ware


If you purchased your computer from a store, there should be a sticker somewhere on the side or top of the case that displays a "Certificate of Authenticity". This will give you a pretty long key in the format of XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX. Use that key to install Windows XP.

If you purchased Windows XP on its own, the key should be on the sleeve or slip that came with your Windows XP CD.

If you're looking for a pirated/bootleg key, this is not the place to ask for that. You'll need to find alternative means of obtaining the product key, preferably by purchasing the software.

I purchased WebPlus X2 last year. I recently purchased a MacBook Pro. I need this software for a Mac. Can you help?


Serif's website says that the system requirements for WebPlus X4 (apparently X3 is no longer current) are:
  • Pentium PC with DVD/CD drive and mouse
  • Microsoft Windows® XP (32 bit), Windows®Vista (32 or 64bit), or Windows® 7 operating system
So the first thing to note is that there is no Macintosh version of the software.
That having been said, given that you own a MacBook Pro, you can install Windows on it, and run the software that way.For example, the product at
ComboDealDetails.aspx
includes a discounted copy of both Windows 7 and Parallels, which will allow you to run Windows 7 right alongside your Mac OS. The solution will cost you $140, but it is a very workable, very nice solution when you are forced to use PC software for a course, etc., but own a Mac.

I NEED TO UP GRADE MY COMPUTER I HAVE WINDOW MILINIUM


You need to purchase a Windows XP or Vista installation disk with its Product installation Code. You can purchase a upgrade version cheaper than the full product, but you need the original ME CD.
You may not be able to purchase Windows XP and Windows Vista may not work efficiently on your computer because of the age of your computer and Vista is very resource hungry.
You may consider purchasing a new computer with Windows 7 as a better option. Windows 7 is due to be released in Oct.

Microphone on Apple Macbbok 13" 2.4 GHZ,2GB


Check to see if the microphone works on the macintosh side of the computer, chances are it won't, microphone usage on Macintosh computers has been hit and miss, sometimes the microphone needs a pre-amp or USB interface like a Griffin iMic adapter.

you can install both into your computer, even into the same drive / partition, but its not recommended, in that case it is required to install into a diffrent named folder than c:\windows

I personally have 2 working xps installed incase the other gets messed up I don't have to spend a few hours reinstalling right then and there il just start up the other one.

Some special buttons need a special utility installed before you can use them. Go to the Acer website and try to find the utility that works with the hot buttons.
You can download the XP Empowering utilities from here:

I need the steps to take to install windows xp on my pre-loaded vista.


Hello there.

Unfortunately, even though you have paid for a Vista license, this does not mean you can just install any copy of Windows XP. You need to purchase either Windows XP Home or Windows XP Professional. If its a business system you would be better with Windows XP Pro.

The reason for purchasing is that the software is licensed to you, you may wish to contact Toshiba and see if they can swap your Vista license for a Windows XP license. The other option is picking up a copy of Windows in the shop and installing it yourself. This is no easy task unless you have experience doing so.

Please try either contacting Toshiba to see what they say, or see about purchasing your own windows XP.

Hope this helps.

If you purchase a program called Boot Camp, VMWare Fusion, or Parallels you can load both XP and OSX to run dually or separate.
