Have you suddenly bought an Apple iMac or Macbook from the Apple store? Because a friend told you they are amazing? You’ve pooped along to the Apple Store, and you were wowed by how impressive they are and look. Then an Apple genius demonstrated all you can do and how easy it all looked. 

Then you’ve decided to purchase one, parted with hand fulls of cash to buy the Apple iMac or Macbook. 

You’ve taken it home. Unboxed it. Sat and stared at it in awe of its beauty and amazed by its simplicity and innovation of technology. 

Then you realised its not windows. Everything the Apple genius showed you, you can’t seem to work out.

Running Windows on Mac Using Bootcamp

Bootcamp is a piece of software integrated into Apple MacOS, that enables you to run Microsoft Windows Operating systems on your Mac. Not many people know about this.

But let me quickly give you the gist of it. Back in 2006 when MacOS was called Apple OSX. The actual release was called OsX 10.5 Leopard. 

Considering 2006 in computing or technology is like 100 years ago, comparing to recent technology. Ancient times.

Anyhow Apple in cooperation Microsft developed software that would allow Apple mac users to run Microsoft Windows on the specific intel based apple hardware. Then boot camp was born. Before this, if you own a Mac, you could only use Apple software.

What does Bootcamp Do?

When you use boot camp, it created a partition (section) on your hard disk for windows to run on. Then it gives your Mac the ability to install Microsoft Windows (Any Verison Windows 7 or Windows 10 etc.) on that part of your hard drive. Then you can either have only windows on your Mac or Both Micorosft Windows and Apple MacOS.

If you decide you want both, you can even choose to boot to Windows or MacOS on Bootup.

Windows Virtual Machine on a Mac.

A virtual machine is simply a piece of software that simulated (pretends) that it is a computer within a computer. Sound complicated?

Think of it like this. Imagine a Window on your computer, within that window is Windows, you can click on that window, and within there you can use windows and all its features. That’s a virtual machine.

What virtual machine can I use?

There are so many virtual machines on the market. From Parallels Desktop for MacVMware Fusion or VirtualBox

Trust me iv tried them all. But I would advise on using parallels.

Why Parallels?

Parallels are packed full of features. When I mentioned earlier about using windows at the same time, you can you macOS.

You can do it in Windowed mode. Like as I describe Microsoft Windows Running in a Window.

Or with Parallels very own Coherence mode.

With coherence mode, it merely merges Windows and Mac. Together! You won’t be able to tell if you’re using a mac or a pc. It is amazing. 

All your apps are available to use from windows on your Mac, Asif you’re using a mac. But its Windows! All your documents or executable files. Run in the same fashion. But I assure you this is something you have to try. It’s like the next level in Computing. All the benefits of an Apple Mac and all the Features of a PC all rolled into one Computer.

Benefits of Parallels

The other benefits of parallels in comparison. To other virtual machines. Its stable doesn’t crash, Doesn’t slows your computer down. It regularly updates. 

You can share files quickly and seamlessly between Mac and windows. You can even plug in your devices, and they install just like using a Windows Desktop PC.

So if you liked this article, you now know what many others don’t know. You can run Microsoft Windows on your Apple iMac or Macbook.
