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 helpdesk@uwosh.edu or call 920-424-3020.
