    windows on a mac
    I found my dads Windows XP disc near his computer and I was wondering if installing it on my mac would somehow screw up his computer?
    Also, is it possible to install it on an external hard drive and when I want to use Windows I just plug in the hard drive and load windows?(cuz i dont really have 20gbs of space on mac mac to just waste on windows)

    Unless it's a volume license, it's probably not legal.

    To answer your second question, yes.

    I believe, though, that you will need a non-Mac system to do that. Not sure.

    You asked this same question again in another forum. You were told that what you're trying to do is illegal and the thread was closed by a moderator. I'm closing this thread for the same reason. Also do not cross post.
