I'm not quite sure what you mean, so I'll give you both answers: "How do you use a hard drive for Mac and Windows on the same machine?" On a mac, insert a Windows install CD or DVD, and the computer will ask you if you want to set up windows to run alongside mac. In the process you will partition the hard drive, so you will kind of have a windows hard drive, and a mac hard drive, but on the same disk. "How do you remove a Mac hard drive and put it in a Windows machine?" I am not a technical expert, so you might want to look up "How to remove and install a hard drive".
