Boot Camp: LSU Overview

General Information

Boot Camp is software included with OS X so you can run compatible versions of Microsoft Windows on an Intel-based Mac. You can run the Windows operating system on your Mac at native speed-without the performance penalty that comes with software emulation or "virtual machines."

Windows applications have full access to multiple processors and multiple cores, accelerated 3D graphics, and high-speed ports and networking such as:

  • USB
  • FireWire
  • Wi-Fi
  • AirPort
  • Gigabit Ethernet
  • Drivers for Audio & Bluetooth Functionality

If you're using Mac OS X v10.5 or Mac OS X v10.6, the Boot Camp support software is on the Mac OS X installation DVD. For OS X Lion v10.7 or later Windows drivers are automatically downloaded from Boot Camp Assistant.
