With the release of new Mac computers with Intel processors, Mac users have the ability to install the Microsoft Windows operating system on their computer and boot into it through a utility called Boot Camp. Boot Camp is included with all new Macs that are running the latest version of the Mac OS X operating system, also known as Leopard. Here is a method to boot your computer directly to a Windows partition using Boot Camp.
Things You'll Need
- Mac running OS X 10.5 or later
- Windows partition installed
Log on to your computer with an account that has administrative privileges.
Open "System Preferences" by clicking on the dock icon.
Go to the "Startup Disk" control panel under the "System" category.
Select your Windows partition from the control panel window.
Click the "Restart" button, then confirm your decision by clicking "Restart" again. Your computer will restart and will automatically boot into your Windows partition.
