Boot camps / VMWare
If you choose to purchase an Intel-powered Mac computer, whether it's a MacBook Pro or Air, the MSBTC will assist you in installing Windows 10 as a secondary operating system. The Tech Center offers two ways to install Windows on your Mac:
Bootcamp: Bootcamp allows you to select either your Mac OS or your Windows OS upon boot up. Bootcamp runs without slowing your computer. To bootcamp your computer, you MUST have at least 80 GB of free space on your computer, a laptop charger, an available USB/USB-C port, a computer released during or after 2012, and have the latest Mac OS installed.
VMWare Fusion: This is a software offered for free by Georgetown to all Georgetown students. It allows you to run both your Apple OS and Windows OS at the same time, but it will slow down your computer.
MSBTC will provide MSB students with a free copy of Windows 10 and Microsoft Office for Windows. It is not necessary for Mac users to purchase this software.
In order to bootcamp your computer, you HAVE to book an appointment.
Be prepared to spend at least 2 hours in the Tech Center with your computer if you choose to install Windows on a Mac computer. You must be with your computer at all times. If you have any questions, drop by the Tech Center in Hariri and we can explain this further.
