I bought an iMac and unfortunately some games I want to play are only developed for windows, under those circumstances I need to install windows vista on my iMac and have it run both operating systems. I'm concerned however because a few of my friends have had system problems when doing that and I cant afford losing all my work on my current Lion operating system...


So, in the end, my questions are: What will happen when I install both operating systems on the iMac? Do I need to be careful or pay attention to any particular step of the windows vista instalation? And, is it true that some iMacs suffer system damages when sharing operating systems?


My iMac configuration is: 2.5 GHz intel core i5, 4GB 1333 DDDR3m, AMD Radeon HD 512MB.


Thanks in advance,



iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.1)
