Apple Boot Camp Public Beta First Look

Book description

Unlike emulation systems such as Microsoft's Virtual PC, Apple's new Boot Camp takes advantage of the fact that your new Intel-equipped iMac, Mac mini or MacBook Pro uses the same type of Intel processor that normal Windows PCs use, allowing you to now run Windows XP on your Intel-equipped Mac at full speed. While most of the information currently available on Boot Camp focuses mainly on installation, in Ben Long's "Apple Boot Camp Public Beta First Look" full-color PDF e-book, Mac authority Ben Long walks you step by step through everything you need to know to get Boot Camp running effectively, including how to find your way around Windows, how to get Windows working with some of your other hardware, how to avoid Windows viruses and Malware, how to share data back and forth between your Mac and Windows systems, how to back up your Windows system, how to restore your Windows system and finally, even how to virtualize Windows using Parallels. With this Apple Boot Camp Public Beta First Look, you'll get a solid grounding in how to get Windows XP up and running on your Mac.
