Okay, Im wanting to install a copy of Windows onto my Apple.
Should I install through Bootcamp or Parallels?
Also, the install worked on my other Mac through a virtual drive, but I believe the copy was a bootleg, Would that cause issues during an install on BootCamp?

Should I go with XP or Vista?

But, beside the point, Can Windows installed through Bootcamp play Windows games?


Thanks

play windows games --> install via bootcamp
run windows aps while in mac osx (kinda) --> parallels (which you can use if you install via bootcamp)

They're not mutualy exclusive.

Go with XP I'd say but that is kinda personal. Bootleg or not shouldn't matter too much depending on what you want to do.

Okay cool, Im assuming if I go the bootcamp route, it still wont be like having a Hardcore CPU, So no graphics heavy games ( Bioshock ect.)

Anyone know any games it can play well? (without bad lag, or graphics issues)

EDIT: I forgot to say this, its an iMac 2.0Ghz with 1GB memory - blech

if you install via bootcamp then games will run accordingly to your hardware. check requirements.
