Not changes boot order
By using the Windows DVD, you cannot change the boot order because it is configured to boot in that manner. The boot order of the computer can be changed using the BIOS set-up. The computer does not need to be restarted to run Windows as virtualization programs load Windows while still running Mac OS.
The settings of Boot Camp have to be configured. The Windows versions may demand different boot orders. You will have to install the appropriate drivers for the computer once the Boot Camp software is enabled. The main feature of the boot camp software is to mount the ISO image on Windows 7. Using Boot Camp, you may be able to access the devices and applications of Windows 7 on the computer.
Using Boot Camp, you will be able to view the devices in the computer. It allows you to explore the devices as well. It is advisable to take a back up of the important files in the computer. Windows will be "stored" in a file on your Mac hard drive - because of the way that virtualization works, you will be able to move files between the Windows OS and Mac OS very easily. File transfer between the windows and Mac OS is simpler.
