What is Boot Camp?

Boot Camp 1.1

Boot Camp is a free software provided by Apple Computer to enable one to install the Windows XP Home/Pro (SP2) onto an Intel-CPU-based Macintosh laptop or desktop computer. Although Apple has written the software, they consider it to be a beta product, and they do not offer any technical support in its installation or use, other than a user's manual and online technical articles.

In operation, whenever the user wishes to switch between operating systems, they must reboot the computer. If one wishes to switch operating systems often, this can be an inconvenience.

The Windows OS and any Windows data files are placed on a separate partition of the hard drive, which Boot Camp creates during setup. This partition may be on any hard drive as of the latest version of Boot Camp (1.1 beta).

The user may copy files from the Windows side onto the Mac OS partition when running Windows. However, by default, the user will not be able to copy files from the Macintosh partition onto the Windows partition. This situation arises because the default format for the Windows partition is NTFS format.

The user may rerun Boot Camp and create a new Windows partition that is FAT32 formatted, and then they may copy files from the Macintosh partition onto the Windows partition. The disadvantage here is that this partition is limited to 32GB or less.

The Boot Camp installation supports Microsoft DirectX graphics acceleration for gaming, and users report excellent results when running Windows-based high-end games.
