MAC HDD to Windows
Posted 29 March 2011 - 11:52 AM
However, it already has OSX installed (obviously). I don't have a Mac, will I be able to format this drive in order to load Windows on it using my PC?

install your windows 7 CD and it should ask where do you want to install and what drive to format
you can also use a program called gparted but u must download and burn it to a disk first

I'm an avid Windows guy... I've only ever booted up a Mac once or twice. And I know they are big on their proprietary hardware... anyways, I will look into getting the drive then. Its a nice cheap way to get a SSD...

Its possible though difficult to run mac os on pc hardware. The main problems I can remember are that the OS is encrypted and you need hacked drivers.
That's not what he wants to do. But it isn't that hard. I have it on my computer.
