Boot Camp 1.4 Beta

by admin August 9, 2007 at 6:30 pm

In the next major release of Mac OS X Leopard, Apple will include a new technology called Boot Camp that lets you install and run Windows on your Mac. If you have an Intel-based Mac computer and would like to try Boot Camp, you can download the public beta today.

As elegant as it gets

Boot Camp lets you install Windows XP without moving your Mac data, though you will need to bring your own copy to the table, as Apple Computer does not sell or support Microsoft Windows.(1) Boot Camp will burn a CD of all the required drivers for Windows so you don’t have to scrounge around the Internet looking for them.

Run XP natively

Once you’ve completed Boot Camp, simply hold down the option key at startup to choose between Mac OS X and Windows. (That’s the “alt” key for you longtime Windows users.) After starting up, your Mac runs Windows completely natively. Simply restart to come back to Mac.

Boot Camp 1.4 beta includes:
· Support for keyboard backlighting (MacBook Pro only)
· Apple Remote pairing
· Updated graphics drivers
· Improved Boot Camp driver installer
· Improved international keyboard support
· Localization fixes
· Updated Windows Help for Boot Camp
