Follow a Simple Apple Guide to Install Windows 7 on a Mac with Boot Camp

Boot Camp

Bootcamp has been around a while, and it makes it pretty easy to install and run other Windows OS’s in conjunction with Mac OS X on the same Mac computer. It’s hard to have missed all the hooplah surrounding the Windows 7 launch, and many Mac users may want to try it out themselves, so with that in mind Apple created a pretty nice visual walkthrough on installing Windows 7 within Boot Camp.

If you’re in the market to run Windows 7 on your Mac natively without using a virtual machine, check out their guide, it’s really easy to follow and has lots of pictures to lead you along the installation process. Of course, you’ll need a copy of Windows 7 handy, and always back up your Mac before making any modifications to the file system, partition map, or drive!

Don’t worry, if you find that Boot Camp and having Windows on your Mac has worn out it’s welcome, you can always remove it at any time.
