Learn how to use Boot Camp utility in Windows® 7
Boot Camp is a utility which is included with the Apple Inc.'s Mac Operating System X v10.5 Leopard and the v10.6 Snow Leopard Operating Systems that assists users in installing the Microsoft Windows 7 Operating Systems on Intel-based Macintosh computers. The boot camp guides users through a non destructive, re partitioning that includes the resizing of an existing HFS+ partition, if necessary of their hard disk drive and using the Mac OS X Leopard or Snow Leopard disc to install the Windows drivers. In addition to the device drivers for the hardware, the disc includes an applet for the Windows control panel for selecting the boot operating system. By holding down the option key at startup brings up the boot manager and thereby allowing the user to choose which Operating System to boot. While using a non-Apple keyboard, the alt key usually performs the same action. You can also launch the boot manager by holding down the menu button on the Apple Remote at startup. The boot camp displaced the open source Xom Project for dual booting Mac OS X and Windows 7.
