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.

All the files under C:\Windows, which is what contains the OS.

You'll need to set up at least two boot partitions on the "C:" drive, one for XP and one for 98. Then you'll have to get a boot loader that lets you select which OS you want to boot.

You can install Windows by first installing Boot Camp, which is included with Mac OS X. It's a multi-boot utility that allows you to boot either Mac OS or Windows OS. After setting it up, you would need Windows installation drivers that's stored in a storage device (ex: flash drives), or on disk.

You misunderstand the purpose of Boot Camp. The purpose of Boot Camp is to allow you to set up a dual-boot of Mac OS X and Windows on your Mac. It does not allow you to run Windows programs directly on Mac OS X.

Boot Camp is a utility that helps you install the Windows operating system on your Mac. Once installed you can boot into either Mac Os X or Windows. (See links below)

The Boot Camp utility assists in setting up a Mac so that Windows can be installed. It will not run Mac OS 9. Boot Camp assistant lets you boot into Boot Camp which is a Windows type program to be able to install and use a Windows Operating System. Boot Camp installs Apple drivers and is basically the translator for Apples hardware like the keyboard, mouse, Airport, etc. OS 9 being a Mac OS, as old as it is, can't speak Windows. The new Mac OS was re-written to be able to use the same type Intel chip that Windows uses.

You can directly update your Windows 8 through internet. You must have the admin rights.

It can view Windows files, run Microsoft Office, and run Windows itself with a Windows installation disc, at least 20GB free storage, and Boot Camp assistant (comes standard with Mac OS X Tiger or higher)

The system partition is the active partition of the hard drive and it contains the OS boot record. The boot partition is the partition where the Windows operating system is stored.

DOS is itself an OS.. It use the boot files to boot.. Few of them are: Config.Sys MSDOS.SYS Command.Com

You could use Boot Camp to make a dual-boot for Windows XP, Vista or 7 and Mac OS X. You can then install Insanequarium in Windows

This is dependent on your OS. Windows: 'C:\, C:\system' *nix:; /, /bin, /root, or /boot Mac: ?dont know? Usually this will be in the first physical partition(boot partition).

Yes there is something called boot camp which lets you run vista or xp sp2 on the mac without deleting the other operating system it should be in your applications folder In the "Tool Tray" in Windows there should be a Boot Camp control panel, just select it and choose "Boot into Mac OS". If not, go into the Control Panels then select Boot Camp there. If it still won't work then restart and push the OPTION key as it starts up and it "should" have a list of boot up files after a few moments. When you want to go back to Windows go to System Preferences/Start up Disk, then choose the Windows partition.

You set the bios to CD boot. After that reinstall windows with a windows xp cd.

Files that are critical for successful Os (Operating system) load are called program files. Some computers run on Windows program files and some computers run on Mac program files.

There are two ways to achieve this and the method you choose depends on whether you want to keep any files or applications that you have installed. If you do not want to keep anything that is currently on your hard drive, boot from the Windows XP CD (there are options in BIOS to allow you to boot from a CD drive). Windows XP will display the current partitions on your hard drive. Delete existing partitions, create a new one and install XP to that new partition. Everything that was accessible on your computer will be wiped and you will have a clean installation of Windows XP. If you want to keep files or applications then boot into your exisiting OS. Insert the Windows XP CD and choose the UPGRADE option. This will upgrade your OS to Windows XP without affecting your files and applications. Bear in mind that some of your applications may not function under Windows XP. Also bear in mind that some of your hardware may require updated drivers to operate correctly with the new operating system.

Windows uses an inbuilt program called windows easy transfer

Windows XP is a long time operating system from Microsoft. The bootable files in that OS are, autoexec.bat, win.ini, win.ini, and ntdetect.exe. There files are needed for proper booting of the OS.

Nothing. If you have an Intel Mac, you can use Boot Camp to dual-boot Windows. There is nothing you can do to run it on a PowerPC Mac.

Re installing the Windows OS without formatting the disk will keep your files safe. Only the system files will be rewirtten no change will be to the data files. But files stored in My Documents and Desktop will be lost if you are going for a clean installation. Download Recover My Files software to recover your old files after a system crash.

If it is Mac compatible, yes. If not, the only way to install it on a Mac is to install a Windows OS on the Mac and duel boot. You can install Windows OS on a Mac.
