Today's Mac is quite versatile, due to the fact that Intel now produces their CPUs. Apple is now distributing BootCamp
, the software that allows Apple Users to Install Windows XP directly to their Macs without disrupting their MacOS data
. This essentially solves any compatibility problems, since you are running a full version of XP, which comes with Media Player pre-installed. Dual-booting any computer comes with some risk, which is why we only recommend that advanced users consider this option. Data corruption or loss is a very serious possibility, and could result in wiping out all the information on your hard drive. You also need to purchase your own Windows XP disc. Bootcamp
is a standard part of the Leopard
build of OS X.
This information is only provided as an alternative solution for getting Windows Media streams to work for you. We will not provide any tech support needed to accomplish running BootCamp
on your Mac.
If you are unsure about installing XP on your Mac, please make an appointment with an Apple Genus Bar
, where Apple service techs can walk you through the process.
