Mac - Windows Operating System on a Mac
This document explains running Windows OS on a Mac for Faculty and Staff
Mac Dual Boot
Faculty and staff computers are no longer able to be set up with dual boot. Classrooms and Labs are excluded from this.
- Due to limitations in imaging, and changes that both Apple and Microsoft have made, UWO IT is no longer able to support the installation of Windows on a Mac.
Running Windows on Mac
For special cases, we can do a virtual installation of Windows on most Macs, but they have decreased performance, and can be somewhat cumbersome to use.
- It also requires the purchase of a license for VMware Fusion Pro, which is around $100.
Request for VMware Fusion Pro
If you need to run Windows on your Mac you will need to request a quote from the IT Department for VMware Fusion. To do so please email email@example.com or call 920-424-3020.
