Description

In this course I am going to be showing you how to install Windows 8.1 on your Mac for FREE. Windows 8.1 has made some great improvements since Windows 8 and in 2015 it is almost a necessity to have both major operating systems running on one machine.

    • You will learn how to easily switch between operating systems and find where to access your files located on the different hard drives.
    • This course is structured chronologically, I will go through each step of the install process. We will first download a Windows 8 ISO file from Microsoft's official website.
    • Then using a tool called BootCamp I will show you how to burn the ISO file to a DVD and download support software to a USB flash drive.
    • I will be with you throughout the entire process so you don't have to worry about missing a step.
So if you're looking to widen your skill set by learning another operating system or need Windows to run a particular software, this course is for you!
Who is the target audience?
  • This course is for ANYONE who wishes to install and run Windows 8 on their Mac computer for free.
