How to Use Boot Camp on Mac

In this video tutorial we will show you how to use Boot Camp on Mac.


Lets start with inserting Windows installation disk and an empty USB Flash drive.
Now proceed to the Launchpad, choose “Other” and start the Boot Camp Assistant.

Launch the Boot Camp Assistant

When the Boot Camp Assistant is launched, press Continue.
In the next window, check the “Download the Latest Windows Support Software from Apple” and “Install Windows 7” options.

In the next menu choose “Save a copy to an External Drive”.

Choose Save a copy to an External Drive

For the Windows to recognize this drive, it needs to be formatted into the FAT file system.
To do that, go to the Launchpad, choose “Other” and start Disk Utility.

Launch Disk Utility

Select your External USB Flash Drive from the list on the left and go to the “Erase” tab.

Select the External USB Flash Drive

Select the “MS-DOS (FAT)” file system and name your drive, for example “SUPPORT”.

Select the file system

Press the “Erase” button below and confirm this action. After the formatting is complete, we can close Disk Utility and go back to the Boot Camp Assistant.
Press Continue. Choose where to download the Windows support files, in our case it will be USB external drive named SUPPORT. Press SAVE. The download process will take about 20 minutes.
When the download is complete the partitioning menu will appear.
Choose the size of the partition. There are two options: you can cut your hard drive in half by pressing “Divide Equally” button or you can move the dot to specify how much disk space you would like to allocate for Windows. Let’s make it 30 GB.
Press the “Install” button and after the partition is created, your Mac will reboot and the installation process will begin.
