Windows 8 Installs and Runs on an Apple Mac Mini

E-mail Print PDF

I've seen a few people ask whether Windows 8 will run on a Mac. There seems to be some worry that Windows 8 won't run on Apple Mac hardware because Windows 8 uses UEFI.

Remember, Microsoft has said that Windows 8 will run on any hardware that runs Window 7. This happens to include Apple Mac hardware such as the Mac Mini. You can install Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 on a Mac. Skipping this argument though, most current systems running Windows 7 use BIOS. This means that Windows 8 is retaining backwards compatibility with older hardware standards. Otherwise, almost no current Windows 7 hardware would run Windows 8. Also, Windows 7 works on BIOS, EFI, and UEFI. Considering that using the correct approach you can install almost anything on a Mac, I doubt you'll have any trouble.

I did install the Windows 8 Developer Preview on a Mac Mini this weekend. Using the same procedure I use to install Windows Server 2008. I also installed the nVidia Windows 7 64 bit drivers, Java (JRE), and ran Minecraft out of curiosity. Everything ran just fine. I don't think compatibility is going to be a problem with Windows 8.

All the entertainment units like TV, DVD, remote and video games can be placed in a single unit and there are more and more types of furniture, coming into

Additionally, it helps maintain the skin's acid mantle.
Cancer - It's one of the most frightening words in the English language, and
increasingly, skin cancer is becoming a real concern among many.
For instance, if there are issues with veins on your legs, the best procedure is
certainly different from the facial veins.
