Hello,

 

I have never installed Windows on a Mac. I found the official guidebook from Apple online, but I want to make sure I am buying the right type of Windows before I get it. So should I get 32 Bit or 64 Bit Windows 7? What other major things should I keep in mind as I'm getting ready to install Windows? I have made a Time Machine backup for my computer on an external hard drive. I want to make sure that I am not leaving out anything major in terms of how I should prepare for the process. I have Mac OS X 10.9.2, if the version is significant. Let me know what other info you need about my computer if you need any.

 

Thank you.


MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4)

Version of Windows you can install depends on your MacBook Pro, some will only accept 64 bit.

I only installed once for a family member, so I know very little about it, I just followed the guides. Only problem I had was registering Windows with Microsoft, and yes it was a fully paid for version. A phone call to MS was required.
