Boot Camp Public Beta

Rated /5

Introduced by Apple on 5th April 2006, Boot Camp, public beta software enables Intel-based Macs to run Windows XP.
Boot Camp allows users with a Microsoft Windows XP installation disc to install Windows XP on an Intel-based Mac, and once installation is complete, users can restart their computer to run either Mac OSĀ® X or Windows XP.
The public beta of Boot Camp is available immediately as a download and is preview software licensed for use on a trial basis for a limited time. Boot Camp will be available as a feature in the next major release of Mac OS X, Leopard.
Note : Apple does not provide support for installing or running Boot Camp and does not sell or support Microsoft Windows software. Boot Camp is currently in a testing stage and users are advised to back up their data while using the software.
Boot Camp Public Beta requires Mac OS X Tiger v10.4.6 (check Software Update in System Preferences);
The latest Firmware update (check Support Downloads and search for your Mac model);
At least 10GB free hard disk space; An Intel-based Mac; A blank recordable CD; A printer for the included instructions (You’ll want to print them before installing Windows, really.);
A bona fide installation disc for Microsoft Windows XP, Service Pack 2, Home Edition or Professional (No multi-disc, upgrade or Media Center versions.)
Note:Windows running on a Mac is like Windows running on a PC. That means it’ll be subject to the same attacks that plague the Windows world.
