Introduction Boot Camp enables you to install Windows on your Intel-based Mac computer, using a Microsoft Windows install disc that you provide. Windows is installed on its own partition. After installation, you can use either Windows or Mac OS X on your Mac computer. The Boot Camp Assistant application helps you create the Windows partition and restart your Mac using your Windows installation disc. Then you can follow these instructions to install Windows and install software drivers that enable Windows to work with your Mac hardware. Important: Before you use Boot Camp Assistant, print this document. It contains information you’ll need while installing Windows. NOTICE: Make sure to back up all of your data before using Boot Camp, and regularly back up data while using the software.
