it wont work, mac installs programs that shut anything down when it sees the word Microsoft in the installs. Maybe you shouldnt have bought a mac?
Here you go: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windo... Home Premium is plenty enough for gaming.
Yes, you can install Windows on your Mac without having to reboot, you can actually use Windows while you are running OS X at the same time. What you need is one of these two applications: http://www.vmware.com/products/fusion/ http://www.parallels.com/ One of these two should help you get Windows installed in a virtual environment.
Hi, Put very simply it means that the 64bit processor can perform more calculations than a 32 bit one as it can directly address more memory. The cpu you have is a 64bit cpu so it can run windows XP 64bit which means it will be faster than a 64 bit cpu using a 32bit operating system, as with a 32bit os the cpu is limited in how it can work. So yes upgrading the ram to 8gig and using XP 64bit will make a big difference in speed. As for the Quad core and above processors, they are only effective if the software is written to use more than 1 core, currently most is not but new games are coming out that will use multicore processors.

Why wouldn't you want to use boot camp? It's easy and there are no "digging into the system". If you have no interest in MacOSX, why buy mac?
Most laptops have a "Restore Partition" on it from which you can restore the OS, but if I were you I would borrow a friend's XP disk or download a trial copy of one (you are going to use it to repair the installation, not re-install the OS, so you won't need a product key -- you can use the key that is on the label under your laptop). Once you have an XP CD, here's what I recommend: 0. First try to go into safe mode to possibly repair it that way: a. Restart the PC and tap the F8 button repeatedly as it is booting up (before Windows splash screen come on). If windows starts, you need to re-start the PC after it completes and start the repeated tapping of F8 sooner) b. Select "Safe Mode with Networking" c. When it completes the boot up to Safe Mode, it may give you the option to go to System Restore. Try to access System Restore if it is available (if not available, go to step 2). 1. Do a System Restore to a point before this was a problem: a. Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Restore (click to open); b. Select a restore point well before you started having these problems; c. Start the restore process and let it complete (Name the restore operation something descriptive like "Start Up Repair"). Note: you will need to re-install any programs and maybe the updates that were installed after that restore point -- one of which may be the cause of this. Re-Install one at a time so you can see if any one of them causes the problem). If still not working properly, proceed to the next step: 2. Repair the Windows installation: a. Insert your Windows installation disk in the disk drive; b. Re-start your PC and opt to boot onto the disc drive; c. When asked if you want to install windows or repair it, select REPAIR (if you select install it will format the drive and install Windows but you will lose everything, so select REPAIR); d. It will check all the files and replace them as needed. Once complete, you should be able to boot into windows and all should be fine. As for what caused this, many times system hangs or freezes are due to fragmented system files, which the built-in can not handle. I suggest you get a good third party defrag tool and defrag that way. It will make your system perform much better and you'll probably eliminate these system hangs. Fragmentation is desribed in detail at the Defragmentation Information Center (see links below). It really slows your computer down and wears out your disk much faster. Windows has a built-in defrag tool but it is very slow and you cannot use the PC while it is running (some users complain that it did not completely defrag their disks despite running all night). Below is a Top 10 Reviews side-by-side comparison of the best defrag programs around. Check it out. Select a program and install it. The better defrag programs are automatic. The gold medal winner in the above review defragments while you use the PC and it also prevents fragmentation.
