    Not sure of your question here.

    You want to replace the mac OS with XP?

    If that is the question your mac needs to have an intel processor, Boot Camp or Parallels installed.
    Boot Camp will let you boot up in XP.

    I am not fully uinderstanding the question? What I can take from it is you want to put XP on your G5 to replace the mac OSX operating system. Is this correct?

IMac G5's cannot run windows alone, but older software can be purchased like Virtual PC to run windows on that unit.

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.

I want to install mac os 10.5 leapard on my windows xp pro without destroying it how to dual boot please


I'm confused at the question. You will be unable to install Mac OS on a Windows device, but can install Windows on Mac Hardware. If you have a Mac machine you can install in two ways 1.) there is a partition application in utilities that allows you to create a new partition where you can istall windows without ruining current. 2.) if you do not want to partition then you can use VMware or Parallels ( recommended ) emulators to install the OS

Folder with blinking question mark in it after start-up


Folder with a blinking question mark means a missing system folder, in other words there isn't an OS installed. To fix this you need to boot from the OS X installer CD. With the OS X installer CD in the drive, hold down the C key on your keyboard when you start your mac. This tells the mac to boot from the optical drive (i.e. CD drive) and load the OS X installer. From there just follow the onscreen instructions to install OS X.
Also, you should be aware that the ibook is not compatible with Windows XP. Only the newer “intel macs” of the past few years are compatible with XP. Your mac predates Apple's transition to intel processors and Windows XP compatibility on the mac platform by a few years. This is why your Windows XP CD didn't load on it. The ibook is Mac OS X only.
It only runs on Mac OS X however it is compatible with newer versions of the OS. 10.2 jaguar is kind of old and a little buggy. You may want to consider installing 10.4 Tiger for improved stability and performance. Avoid the newest version (10.5 Leopard) as it is geared towards newer and faster machines.
Hope this helps. Enjoy your mac

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.

How i install window xp in macbook with preinstalled os x


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.

A recent mac laptop with Tiger & bootcamp/win XP will connect to the internet via a Netgear DG834G adsl modem with ethernet cable in tiger & XP but only in xp with wireless. Any advice? JL


If I understand you correctly you have an Intel based MAC, with the boot-camp boot manager, so you can choose to boot either from the native MAC OS or from Windows XP.

The system works fine from the MAC OS, but the (wired) ethernet does not work from XP.

1) When you boot into XP mode, the XP operating system is in
charge and the MAC OS is dormant.

2) Check the XP device manager to see if the ethernet NIC
(network device) is properly installed and if the device
drivers are functioning.

From Windows XP:

Right click My Computer ==> Properties => Hardware ==>
==> Device Manager ==> Network Adapters =>
==> Your network controller

Right click on your network controller ==> properties

Check the device status !!!

2) If the device is NOT working properly, you may need to
download and install a device driver for this card.

3) If the device IS working properly, you may need to run
the NETWORK SETUP WIZARD from the control panel:

START ==> Control Panel ==> Network Setup Wizard ==>
==> Next.

4) Assuming you are connecting to DSL with a login password,
use the: "My computer connect to the internet through a
modem" option.

If your DSL is always on, or if you use a local router to
connect to the DSL modem (the router does the work)

Then you choose the: "My computer connects to the
internet through another computer or a residential gateway"
option.
