After using Mac OS X a lot of the MAC users usually do not go back to Windows, but when you give Windows 10 a shot, you will definitely love Windows again. One from the advantages of experiencing a Mac is that you could use OS X and Windows on a single computer without necessity of installing any alternative party tools or Virtual Machines. Using Boot Camp multi-boot utility, you can certainly install Windows on your own Mac. You may also install Windows using any Virtual Machine, however, if you need to use Windows when your daily driver or would like to play some resource intensive software/games (Such As Xmod Games), it’s far better to use Bootcamp to fit Windows with a separate partition. The process is not complex by any means. Just Follow the steps below.
