Installing Windows 7 on Imac (late 2009)

Argh, what a hassle, this sure isn’t easy. The quad core imac can run Windows 7 64 bit, but you have to stand on your head to get it. First, Windows 7 doesn’t include the right video drivers (http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3173) and you have to have a USB keyboard and mouse). You first install:

1. Update Mac OS X to the latest version

2. Download the video driver thingy

3. Start Boot Camp and run Windows 7 64-bit

4. Put the Base Camp 3.1 new drivers on a USB key and get them onto Windows 7.

If it weren’t for PC games, I’d stay all Mac and just use an iPad for everything else 🙂
