Instructions for Mac Users to be able to read a PC (Win) CD in Mac machine
A. Check the system requirements for the PC disc that you want to use. This information is found on the packaging for that program. If you no longer have the packaging, go to the software manufacturer's website to get the requirements. It may require a certain processor speed, graphics card or a certain amount of RAM. It will also require a certain operating system. Some discs can be used on both PCs and Macs, while some cannot.
B. Check that your Mac has those system requirements. You can do that by clicking the Apple, then "About This Mac" and "More Info."
C. Install Windows on your Mac if the system requirements will work but a Windows operating system is needed. There are a few ways to do this. New Macs come with Mac OS X 10.5, which includes Boot Camp. Boot Camp allows you to install Windows Vista or Windows XY with Service Pack 2 on your new Mac (see Resources). After installation, Windows will run a separate partition on your hard drive.
D. Install a software package like VMWare Fusion or Parallels Desktop if you have an older Mac that does not have Boot Camp (see Resources). These applications give you the flexibility to run both Mac OS X and Windows at the same time without rebooting.
E. Install virus protection on the Mac if you choose to install Windows. Norton and Intego both make dual virus protection software that covers the Mac and Windows operating systems at the same time.
