General Information

Boot Camp is software included with OS X so you can run compatible versions of Microsoft Windows on an Intel-based Mac. You can run the Windows operating system on your Mac at native speed—without the performance penalty that comes with software emulation or "virtual machines."

Windows applications have full access to multiple processors and multiple cores, accelerated 3D graphics, and high-speed ports and networking such as:

  • USB
  • FireWire
  • Wi-Fi
  • AirPort
  • Gigabit Ethernet
  • Drivers for Audio & Bluetooth Functionality

If you're using Mac OS X v10.5 or Mac OS X v10.6, the Boot Camp support software is on the Mac OS X installation DVD. For OS X Lion v10.7 or later Windows drivers are automatically downloaded from Boot Camp Assistant.
