No idea if Windows will do it, but you can run Windows without Bootcamp & have OSX available at the same time, which should give you all the Monitors that OSX uses.

    Hello Everyone,
              I have a MacBook older model with me.I am running 10.7.6 on that, I was trying to use BootCamp to install windows on my mac. Since BootCamp can only work on a single Volume, I partitioned my Hard Disk to one volume.
    Using BootCamp I installed windows and everything worked fine. After installing windows and testing everything, I switched back to OS X and this time I tried to make another partition on my single portioned Mac volume and named it Backup. That too worked. Now I have three Volumes
    1)Development2)Backup3)BootCamp.
    Next when I switched to Windows, It should the classic error, No Bootable device found, please insert a Bootable CD and press any key. When I tried to enter my Mac OS X install DVD and by pressing option key, it does not show me the proper Mac OS X development volume. It keeps going back to the No bootable device found message.
    Any help will be much appreciated

    you can't add a partition in between - you put Windows to a new partition number.
    GPT (GUID)
    EFI
    Mac HFS
    Lion Recovery
    Windows
    And now you have two HFS
    One partition and one Windows (plus Lion Recovery).
    If you were to have more, it can't be before Windows for one thing.

  • HT5312 On my iPod touch it asked for my apple security questions, I do not remember them and when I go to manage my account I can not find the option to send to the recovery email, nor can I find a way to reset them.

    Until i know my security questions I am unable to purchase music on my ipod

    Didn't the link to contact the iTunes Store staff in the 'Additional Information' section of that article work for you? If you don't already have a valid rescue email address, only Apple itself can reset the questions.

  • I installed windows 8 using bootcamp, and realized that i put too little space. If i erase the windows partition and do it all over again, will the product key i used to activate windows 8 the first time still work? Or is there a way to expand it?

    Will the product key i used still work again after reinstalling? Is there any SAFE way to expand the bootcamp partition size?

    If you look in your other posting you will see that I already gave you the answer.

  • I have a small production client looking to run 1 workstation running Mac Lion 10.7.3 and two work stations running Windows7 64 bit. They will all be talking to the same storage array through 8Gb FC. What is there most cost effective way to do this?

    I have a small production client looking to run 1 workstation running Mac Lion 10.7.3 and two work stations running Windows7 64 bit. They will all be talking to the same storage array through 8Gb FC. What is there most cost effective way to do this?

    Thank you for your help.
    The client has already made the jump to 8Gb including HBA's, switch and RAID Storage.
    The other question will be if they need a seperate Mac Server to run the Meta Data or are they able to use the current Mac they are running to do this?
    The Mac is a 201073 model they say with 12 Dual Core 2.66Mhz processors and 16 GB of Memory. This system is currently doing rendering. It has the XSAN Client but I understand for the solution to work they need to also run XSAN Server on a MDC.

  • What is the best way to run windows on my mac?

    What is the best way to run windows on my mac?
    I have a particular program that i need to run, and it only runs on windows. I have a macbook pro

    As Templeton noted, it depends and will at least be somewhat subjective. 
    There are basically three options out there.  You can use a Windows emulator (Wine or the commercial version of it, Crossover Office), use Boot Camp to "dual boot" or use virtualization software (Parallels, VMWare Fusion, or VirtualBox).  Each has its advantages or disadvantages.
    The Windows emulators have the advantage of being the one option that doesn't need the purchase of a copy of Windows.  Unlike Boot Camp, but like the virtualization options, this allows you to run Windows programs and OSX programs side by side.  The big problem, though, is that it is the least compatible option--a lot of Windows software either has "issues" or will not function at all.  The Crossover website has information on which programs are known to work and how well they are known to work. 
    Boot Camp is the option that Apple ships OSX with.  You'll need a copy of Windows to install into the partition.  You'll effectively divide your disk into two parts and have two machines.  The major advantages are, first, you don't need to acquire separate software *AND* the Windows license.  As well, it's the highest performance Windows system.  What you have is truly a Windows machine.  That's both the good and the bad--you aren't going to be able to use OSX software at the same time, and you have to reboot to get back to OSX.  I've always thought it was best for someone who likes the Apple hardware and wants to use it for a Windows box--in that case Boot Camp is clearly a great solution.
    Finally there's virtualization which seems to be the most popular way to handle Windows, especially if you need to run one vertical market package.  It has the advantage of allowing you to use your OSX software at the same time, and the virtualization gives an extremely high level of compatibility.  About the only thing that won't run is a virtualization package (and there's not a lot of reason to run that in a Windows VM).  There is a performance hit compared to Boot Camp, but it's minimal for all but the most demanding applications (that being high end games). 
    It will chew up RAM on the OSX machine, but if you have at least 4 GB of RAM it will probably be manageable, especially if you only need to run one Windows program.
    You will need both a virtualization program (there are three major ones) and purchase Windows.  Two of three programs are commercial packages (Parallels and VMWare Fusion), while the other is an open source option (VirtualBox).  Virtual Box has the advantage of being free, but it's by far the least polished of the group.
    Which way is best?  As was noted, it depends.  I run VMWare Fusion on my machines, and I have used CrossOver Office for limited purposes.  I've not yet seen, in my use pattern, a reason to go to Boot Camp but I certainly can see cases where it might make sense.

    What is the best way to run windows on my Mac?   What are the pitfalls/

    If you need Windows as your main operating system you would be better off buying a Real Windows PC.
    Running windows on a Mac is always a compromise. Whether in a Boot Camp partition or in a Virtual Machine.
    In boot camp you can't easily Re-Partition and or Re-Size the drive it is installed on. You can't use both graphics cards as Apple has limited Windows to use the discrete graphics only, that is if your mac has 2 graphics cards (15" MBPs), which will shorten the battery run time in Windows.
    The trackpad only has limited functions in Windows, less then is available on the Mac side and a real Windows PC.

    Windows on Intel Macs
    There are presently several alternatives for running Windows on Intel Macs.
    1. Install the Apple Boot Camp software.  Purchase Windows XP w/Service Pak2, Vista, or Windows 7.  Follow instructions in the Boot Camp documentation on installation of Boot Camp, creating Driver CD, and installing Windows.  Boot Camp enables you to boot the computer into OS X or Windows.
    2. Parallels Desktop for Mac and Windows XP, Vista Business, Vista Ultimate, or Windows 7.  Parallels is software virtualization that enables running Windows concurrently with OS X.
    3. VM Fusionand Windows XP, Vista Business, Vista Ultimate, or Windows 7.  VM Fusion is software virtualization that enables running Windows concurrently with OS X.
    4. CrossOver which enables running many Windows applications without having to install Windows.  The Windows applications can run concurrently with OS X.
    5. VirtualBox is a new Open Source freeware virtual machine such as VM Fusion and Parallels that was developed by Solaris.  It is not as fully developed for the Mac as Parallels and VM Fusion.
    Note that Parallels and VM Fusion can also run other operating systems such as Linux, Unix, OS/2, Solaris, etc.  There are performance differences between dual-boot systems and virtualization.  The latter tend to be a little slower (not much) and do not provide the video performance of the dual-boot system. See MacTech.com's Virtualization Benchmarking for comparisons of Boot Camp, Parallels, and VM Fusion. Boot Camp is only available with Leopard or Snow Leopard. Except for Crossover and a couple of similar alternatives like DarWine you must have a valid installer disc for Windows.
    You must also have an internal optical drive for installing Windows. Windows cannot be installed from an external optical drive.

  • HT5639 If I Run windows on a Mac does it open the Mac up to viruses?

    If I run windows on a Mac does it open it up to virus and will performance degrade over time as it does with windows based machines?

    In Boot Camp Windows runs on a separate partition and does not interact with OS X at all.
    The Windows partition, however, will be just as susceptible as any Windows computer.

    Then your hard drive is full.  You need to move large libraries to another location (like an external drive). Libraries like iPhoto, iTunes, and even iMovie Events, are very big space hogs. 
    iPhoto
    Moving iPhoto Library - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1229. and http://support.apple.com/kb/PH2506.
    iTunes
    Moving iTunes Music from one computer to another or an external drive - http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=iTunesMac/8.2/en/15475.html and HT1449 - http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1449
    iMovie
    Moving iMovie Events to an external drive to save space see the following 2 articles:
    PH2302 - How to move "Events Only" to an external hard drive - http://support.apple.com/kb/PH2302?viewlocale=en_US.
    PH2289 - How to move "Projects" (and their associated events) to an external drive - http://support.apple.com/kb/PH2289?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US. 
    Also note, you can save space on your hard drive by deleting "Excess" unused video in your event folder - see the iMovie 11 help menu, and select the "browse help" tab.  Under Manage Events, select "Delete all excess video from an event"
    NOTE - ensure you are "Moving" the data, and not just "Copying" the data as per - http://support.apple.com/kb/PH2302?viewlocale=en_US.  (hold down COMMAND while dragging to the external drive) for the best results and less chance of loosing data connection with the project
