Hey I was wondering, is there a way to run boot camp on linux because I lost my Mac osx disk and it won't run on windows 7.

Other OS, Help!!! Please?

    Order replacement OEM disc, buy Lion or Mountain Lion.


    You can of course run Linux natively and run Windows in a VM.


    And you can use other tools like GPart.


    Not knowing what OS X you are running would help.

    I don't understand the question. Boot Camp is comprised of Boot Camp Assistant (does not run on Linux, it only runs on Mac OS), a collection of Windows drivers that Apple has collected to support Apple hardware (does not run on Linux, it only runs on Windows), and a CSM-BIOS which can be used to boot Linux on Apple hardware.


    I highly advise using VM wherever possible, and not using Boot Camp for native OS booting. It's painful and risks people's data.
