Q : Windows 00 and Boot Camp

Hi there,

I need to use MS Office for work and called the Apple Help Desk. The woman told me to do this boot camp thing and what not.

The problem is, I was able to purchase Windows 00 through work, however, I had to download the exe on my computer. They are mailing a back up DVD in 0-6 weeks. In the meantime, I am unable to install Windows 00 as the Boot Camp is asking for a disk. Also, I have no idea where this download was saved to. When I search for it and select the file name, it only appears in the download box.

I"m sure I"m doing something wrong or missing a step....

MAC BOOK PRO, Mac OS X (10.6.6)

    You do know they make Microsoft Office for Mac’s don’t you? Unless you need Microsoft Access which is not available on Mac’s.

    If you downloaded the iso on your Mac then it’s in the download folder. Check the icon to next to your Trash in the dock, you can copy or move it out from there.
    You will need to burn the iso to DVD, you can use Disk utility.

    By the way you mean Windows 0 not 00

    Also, I would not rely on any Apple Help desk for using Windows on Mac etc. as you don"t need to run Windows natively (aka, partition and have dual boot), using it as a Guest OS under Mac OS is usually fine and easier, and, VMs can usually use the ISO as the installer source.

    If you do burn the ISO, and use Disk Utility, it won"t work right unless you reduce burn speed to slowest 0x also.

    There are differences or have been between documents created in Office and then opened in Mac version but maybe the latest Office 0011 for Mac has better cross platform support.
