Boot camp and/ or Parallels. You need software to create a virtual, bootable partition. The version of windows you install cannot be OEM, or a transferred license. I would recommend LINUX instead of windows XP. It's free and stable and like OS X, based on UNIX.

On Windows, choose "Remote Install Mac OS X" from the Install Assistant. 3. Read the introduction and click Continue. 4 .Choose the install disc you want to use, and click Continue. 5.

Click Continue. 6 .Restart your MacBook Air and hold down the Option key as it starts up, until you see a list of available startup disks. 8.

You can enter a private network name by choosing the ellipsis (...) and typing the name. 9.

I have a macbook OS X, i boot up on windows xp then i notice that theres only 10% remaining on the harddisk intended to windows, then suddenly the blue color appear and says that i must shutdown the unit....


Your hard drive is corrupted and the OS needs to be re-installed on the hard drive. Re-install the OS using your discs, but first use disk 1 to go into disk utilities and select your hard drive, then click repair disk permissions. After that click on repair disk and see if that don't help. If that don't help then your next step is to re-install the OS, because somewhere the startup file got corrupted. If that don't work, then your SOL, which means your hard drive has given up the ghost and you need to install a new hard drive.

Installed Parallels on mac but cannot connect to the internet.


When running your mac in the windows mode, insert your mac os dvd into the drive. It will launch the program to install all the software and settings to make your windows os very "mac-like".
I had the same problem. Mac has thought of that for us! Insert the Mac disc, let it fully run it's installation WHILE YOU"RE IN Windows os. It'll set up all the settings for wifi and everythng that one would normally have to set up in windows.
If you have a printer that you want to use on the windows os that is already working in the mac os, you can download a copy of bonjour from apple. This program will get your printers up and running as well in os.

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.
