Boot Camp guides users through non-destructive re-partitioning (including resizing of an existing HFS+ partition, if necessary) of their hard drives and creating a CD image with device drivers for Windows.

Overview

Boot Camp is not a virtualization tool, which would allow the Windows and Mac OS X operating systems to run concurrently; instead, the computer must be rebooted to use either operating system. Holding down the option key at startup will bring up the boot manager, allowing the user to choose which operating system to boot. When using a non Apple keyboard, the 'alt' key will usually perform the same action. In computing, virtualization is a broad term that refers to the abstraction of computer resources. ... Mac OS X (official IPA pronunciation: ) is a line of proprietary, graphical operating systems developed, marketed, and sold by Apple Inc. ... Parallel programming (also concurrent programming), is a computer programming technique that provides for the execution of operations concurrently, either within a single computer, or across a number of systems. ... A soft reboot (also known as a warm reboot, in contrast to a cold reboot) is restarting a computer under software control, without removing power or (directly) triggering a reset line. ... The Option key The Option key, known to latent PC users as Alt key, is a modifier key present on Apple keyboards. ...


Boot Camp requires that users upgrade the firmware on early Intel-based Macintosh computers to the latest version, which includes the boot-loader and BIOS emulation module required to get the EFI based machines to boot legacy operating systems. In computing, firmware is software that is embedded in a hardware device. ... This article does not cite any references or sources. ...

Further, Apple does not officially support Boot Camp or Windows nor does it sell copies of Windows at its stores. The technology is currently beta but will be included with Mac OS X v10.5, Apple's upcoming operating system.

Requirements

Apple's Boot Camp FAQ lists the following requirements:[1]

  • An Intel-based Mac with up-to-date firmware
  • Mac OS X Tiger v10.4.6+
  • 10GB free hard disk space (15GB is recommended for Vista)
  • An available writable CD or DVD to write the Windows drivers (In the non-beta version included in Mac OS X 10.5 the drivers will be on the Mac OS X 10.5 DVD)
  • A full version of one of the following OSes:
    • Windows XP Home Edition or Professional with Service Pack 2
    • Windows Vista (32-bit) Home Basic, Home Premium, Business or Ultimate

Other operating systems

The documentation from Apple states that Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Windows Vista is requisite for a Boot Camp installation; however, it should be noted that other operating systems have been installed successfully. Other versions of Windows, such as Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, Windows Server 2003 and Windows Vista 64-bit have been installed. Further, various Linux distributions have been installed,[2] as well as GNU OpenSolaris's Nexenta OS (Alpha 6 Elatte).[3]The biggest issue when installing operating systems not officially supported by Boot Camp is a lack of proper drivers. The driver issue is more difficult to overcome in non-Windows OSes since Apple writes its Boot Camp drivers specifically for 32-bit (x86) Windows XP SP2 and Windows Vista. 1. ...
