Help - New to Mac and need advice please


5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


You good folk were recomended to me by another forum as having the real expertise in this subject.


I am totally new to Mac - never used it or even seen it running before, however, I see that versions of it can be ran on PC (windows based) and would love to experience it as I am due for an upgrade of my box within the next 6 months.


I am wanting to know if I can run it on a seperate partition on my hard drive which will hopefully allow me to run both Xp home and Leopard (250 gig HDD)


and also will need to know how to do this - partitioning and installation - preferably step by step - sorry to sound like a total noob (I guess I am :) )


This is my setup:



VIAK8_ (K8 Triton GA-K8VM800M VIA K8M800 Chipset)

System Model: AWRDACPI

BIOS Version: Award Software International, Inc. F2



AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3000+

Version: x86 Family 15 Model 12 Stepping 0

Speed: 2009 MHz


Memory (RAM)

Capacity: 1 GB


Many thanks in advance for any help or suggestions (as long as they aren't rude :) )
