    For Mac users who also need to use a PC at work, home or just with specific applications, there is a solution. Using Boot Camp Assistant, you can install Windows 7 on your Intel-based Mac computer in its own partition. You’ll have a dual-boot system with your Mac OS on one partition and Windows on another.

    Prerequisites:

    1. All firmware updates installed on your Mac
    2. A Windows 7 installation DVD with a Product ID (Full version, not an Upgrade version)

      If you do not have Windows 7 yet, you can purchase it online at the Microsoft Store.
    3. A Mac OS X Snow Leopard or Mac OS X Lion installation DVD
    4. A copy of Boot Camp version 3.3 (4.0 for Mac OS X Lion)

    7. Your Mac will restart and boot to the Windows 7 DVD. You’ll be prompted with a window asking which partition you want to install Windows on. Select the partition labeled BOOTCAMP. Then, click Drive options (advanced).

    8. With the BOOTCAMP volume still selected, click Format.

    9. Click OK when notified that files will be lost. Note: (The new partition will not contain any files).

    10. Windows 7 will begin to install, during the installation your system will reboot, when this happens, you’ll need to remove the Windows 7 DVD.

    11. With the Windows 7 DVD removed, your Mac will automatically boot back into Windows 7, and the installation will continue. You’ll be prompted to select your language, keyboard layout, Product ID, etc. Follow any additional instructions to complete the installation of the Windows 7. 

    12. When the Windows installation has completed, insert your MAC OS DVD and select RunSetup.exe when prompted.

    13. Click Next when the Boot Camp installer launches.

  • Speed Up Windows 10 Startup

    Windows 10 is faster than all its predecessors, but slowly and slowly it starts to take more time while booting up.

    It’s not an issue with the operating system, but it’s the applications that you install which slow it down. 

    Disable Startup Items in Windows 10

    1. Open Task Manager. You can do this by right-clicking on task manager and selecting Task Manager. Alternatively, you can press the key combination Ctrl + Shift + Escape.

     

    2. Click on More details if you see this kind of screen. Else skip this step.

     3. Go to the Startup tab, and disable the apps you don’t want to load every time you start your computer. I am running Windows 10 in virtual mode and have no apps installed. You will likely find many apps here, based on how much apps you have installed.

     

     Disable the applications you don’t use often from this list.
