It is now possible to have two operating systems on your Mac computer thanks to Boot Camp, a program designed for installing the Windows operating system on a Mac computer.

What are the key features of Boot Camp?

  • Two operating systems on one computer: Boot Camp offers you the possibility to have two operating systems on one single computer. This can facilitate your work, for example, if you need to use specific Windows programs and only have a Mac computer.
  • Disks manager: In order to make it possible to install the double operating systems, a disk management tool is provided by Boot Camp. It takes over all necessary elements, including drivers, to be recognized by both systems.
  • Selecting the operating system: This action can be performed easily once Boot Camp has been installed. Indeed, the user is invited to choose either to load the Mac system or the Windows one at the computer startup.
  • Customizable settings: There are various settings you are free to customize according to your preferences. For example, you are allowed to set which OS will be the default one and which disk partition to be loaded automatically at the computer startup.
