How To Install Windows 7 On Mac



Get Windows 7 Installed and running on your Mac (Speak to a Tech at Vtechsquad) using Boot Camp in just a few quick steps by following our simple installation guide.

I have already shared the steps for the installation of windows 7 in my previous post "How to clean install windows 7". Now here we will deal with windows 7 installations on Mac OS X. Windows 7 is the one of the great operating system from Microsoft with lot of features and applications. Mac OS X comes with a utility, called Boot Camp, and designed for installing Windows as second operating system. Since many programs will not run under OS X, installing Windows 7 could save you the trouble of having to invest in a separate computer entirely.

Note:- It is not recommend to do this unless you are not comfortable editing the Windows Settings. 

Simple steps to install windows 7 on a MAC:-

  1. Update Bootcamp to at least version 3.1. Previous versions do not support Windows 7. You can download the required update from Apple's official website.
  2. Open Bootcamp through "Finder."
  3. Then go to "Applications," then select "Utilities" and click on the program to continue.
  4. Now we will partition hard disk space for Windows 7. (Maintain enough space for Mac OS X by setting Windows 7 partition in the range of 10-15-25giga byte)
  5. Now click on to partition.
  6. Boot camp icon will show on your OS X desktop, if partition was successful.
  7. Now put your Windows 7 DVD in DVD drive and click on start installation to continue.
  8. After that your Mac will restart with Windows 7 and will display all available partitions.
  9. Now Select Boot camp partition and click on format.
  10. After that Windows 7 starts installation automatically.
  11. After that installation your Mac will restart. Remove your Windows 7 DVD exactly at this point. (Note:- For step by step installation process can take help from my previous post How to clean install windows 7.)
  12. Now you will be booted into Windows 7 installation and here you can select language, time zone, display and many other properties.
  13. After that insert Mac OS X DVD for installation of device drivers. Boot camp installer will launch and here select to install Apple software update for Windows.
  14. Now connect to internet, download video card drivers or other missing drivers and Windows 7 updates.
  15. Finally restart after complete installation.
  16. Now select options key while on restart .You will see these multiple boot choices for OS X and Microsoft Windows 7.

A good IT support London Company will be offering their services 24*7. Ensure the company which you select is low on budget and high on turnaround time.
