8 thoughts on “Install Windows 8.1 on a Mac with VMware

  1. After a challenging attempt at using Boot Camp to download windows 8 on my MacBookPro 13″ Mid 2014, without success-although the instructional video(s) you make are excellent and clear, I used the trial VMware Fusion 7 trial and the downloaded Windows 8 from your website and am blown away at how easy that was, and I am, or was, technologically challenged to be certain.
    I followed along with your video and it took literally minutes to have windows available within my iOS operating system (after an hour download of Windows, you warned us). I don’t do any gaming so I imagine that’s why others go to the trouble of using Boot Camp. Thanks a million, it will help me get a temporary job where I have to use Windows. I turned on “right click” to the right lower corner of my trackpad and it is seemless to go back and forth. I will look for more videos on using Windows within a Mac. You rock.

  2. hey. first of all I’d like to thank you on making such a great website. So far all my queries has been answered thoroughly by just watching your videos. I would just like your opinion on this though. I have a Macbook Air (2014), and I need to install windows, what would you suggest I use? VMware or Bootcamp? Thanks a lot.

  3. You are a life saver — as a very tech-ignorant grad student, I was able to install Windows 7 with VMware on my Mackbook to seamlessly run all my stats programs. Thank you so much!!!
