Hello All, If you want to install Windows XP or VISTA in your Apple Mac system and want a dual boot option.Try This...... Press the (OPTION) key while powering on the system.You can find both the OS drive images.Click on the OS you want to Boot. Tryy It
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. http://nirlog.com/2006/03/18/winxp-and-osx-dual-boot-in-macbook-pro/
Remember to keep a current backup of your data before attempting a Windows XP installation.
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 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
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.
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.
