Hi. It appears that there is no longer a free Boot Camp download from the apple website for Tiger. I was running Vista using Boot Camp (Beta) which I downloaded from the apple website about a year ago. I now want 2 install xp so I can run SolidWorks. When I went to open Boot Camp it had expired. I am finding it hard to find a free Boot Camp for tiger. Will Boot Camp from Leopard work in Tiger? Any help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks

Aran

No it will not work

you need to either upgrade to Leopard, buy Parallels or VMWare fusion or try out the open source virtualisation program from Sun

Thanks a million. That software is amazing. Running xp inside osx now. Haven't installed SolidWorks yet but I am sure it will work. I have another question. How do I reclaim the 20GB I partitioned for vista using bootcamp? Can I use the xp disc to merge the two partitions, is this safe or could it corrupt my mac stuff.

cheers

I haven't ever used bootcamp, so someone else may be able to help

Don't do it with the XP disc. Try this

Thanks Mr Plow. When I went to open BootCamp in OS X it wouldn't open because it had expired so I deleted / uninstalled it because I thought that I would be able to download another version. U don't know why it isn't letting me install SolidWorks on XP. The disc comes up in my computer but when I double click on it nothing happens. It let me install it on vista using BootCamp but it wouldn't run.

Which vm solution are you running xp in?

Do other install discs work?

It could be that the virtual environment doesn't meet the minimum specs for solidworks. It has quite specific requirements. Especially when it comes to graphics cards

To remove Boot Camp beta after it has expired is to set the computer clock to a date before the expiration date
Am I wrong in thinking that by changing the date it would also allow you to use the expired Boot Camp software to install Windows?

Oh...and only pretty girls use Macs...
