Intel Based Macintosh Computers running OSX 10.5 and later contain a program called BootCamp.
BootCamp allows your Macintosh computer to startup in a Microsoft Windows mode that will allow Your Software to run successfully.

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.

You may 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 all system resources.

Depending on your computer’s hardware and OS X version, Boot Camp supports Microsoft Windows Windows XP with Service Pack 2, Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8.

For more details, see Boot Camp: System requirements for Microsoft Windows.



Once a Microsoft Windows operating system is installed, starting up an Intel Based Macintosh Computer will display a Dual Boot Menu.


Dual Boot Menu allows for the selection of the desired operating system for the Intel Based Apple Macintosh Computer to boot into.

Booting into a Microsoft Windows operating system will allow Intel Based Apple Macintosh Computers to install and run Microsoft Windows specific applications.

Note: Hubb Technical Support are unable to support the operation and use of your operating system and you should ensure you are aware of the differences and nuances of running a dual boot system.
