Yes, you need to install Windows 7 onto Bootcamp (which comes free with the mac) or parallels, which you can buy. Then you can boot into Windows 7 or Mac OS X.

Windows software will not run on Mac. The Windows operating system will run on any Intel based Mac in dual-boot mode. You can use Boot Camp which is already installed on your Mac or another program such as Parallels.

Software is designed to work with a particular operating system. The Mac uses the Mac OS X operating system but you can also install the Windows operating system on a Mac. Windows is usually installed on a Mac by using Boot Camp (see the assistant in the Utilities folder) or with an emulator such as Parallels (See links below). With Windows installed the Mac can then use Windows software.

Windows 7 can be installed on a Mac either through the Boot Camp utility or with Parallels (See links below).

You can buy a copy of Windows and with Apples Boot Camp drivers you can install Windows on another partition of your Mac and boot into a full install of Windows. Or you can buy and install Parallels, VMWare, etc, and buy a copy of Windows then install windows via Parallels or VMWare to use Windows while booted into the Mac OS. You don't have to keep booting back and forth between the Mac OS and the Windows OS.

Parallels features true copy & paste and drag & drop - move files, folders and data seamlessly back and forth between Windows and Mac OS X.

Windows software is compatible with Apple Computers, but you must have Windows installed on your Mac to do so. If you have a Mac made after 2006, you are able to install Windows on your computer, and you can use a virtualization software such as Parallels Desktop to run Windows from your Mac.

It is possible to run Microsoft's Access on a MacBook Pro with Parallels Desktop. Parallels creates a virtual Windows computer on the Mac where you can run your Windows software. The Access database will need to be on the Windows side - either on the Parallels virtual disc or a connected Windows network as it will not be recognised if located on the Mac OS X hard disc.

Parallels Workstation for Windows? Use Sun's Virtualbox (information at http://www.virtualbox.org/). Parallels for Mac? Try Qemu, which may or may not work, due to its somewhat experimental status (OS X port at http://www.kju-app.org/).

Games written for the Windows operating system require the Windows operating system to work. If the Mac has Windows installed on it then it will work otherwise it will not work.

Windows 7 will work on a recent Mac (See links below).

With Boot Camp which comes preinstalled on a Mac or with Parallels which you must purchase.

The Logitech Dual Action pads only work on PC's, unfortunately. Consider getting Parallels for Mac so you can use Windows.

Windows games are written to work with the Windows operating system. The Mac does not use the Windows operating system and so the game will not be able to work on a Mac. You will need to install the Windows operating system on your Mac or some software that emulates the parts of the Windows system that the game needs to have a Windows game work on a Mac.

You can certainly move Windows to an external hard drive but Windows will not boot directly from an external drive. If you are running Windows in Parallels (See links below) you can have Parallels installed on the Mac's drive and then have your Windows virtual machine on the external drive.

User Avatar

Unfortunetaly you can't. You can get a Windows setup on a Mac with Apples BootCamp drivers for a full native install or with an emulator like Parallels or VMWare that run in the background.

User Avatar

Yes but you have to purchase and install the Microsoft office 2010 software for macs. The regular Microsoft office for Windows won't work on the mac operating system and macs won't work on windows unless you install the windows operating system using parallels or boot camp. Ask about it at your local Apple Store.

If you install Windows on a virtual machine on your Mac, your files shall in noway get deleted.

Games written for Mac OS X will work on a Mac. Games written for the Windows operating system will require the Windows operating system to be installed on a Mac to work. Some Windows games can be used on a Mac without Windows by using CrossOver Games software.

User Avatar

Not without installing Windows on your Mac. You can use Macintosh Boot Camp or Parallels to install Windows on a Macintosh computer. Remember, once you install Windows on Mac you must into install security software for that Windows partition.

The game Fiesta will only work with computers running the Windows operating system. Unless the Mac is running Windows it will not work with the Mac.
