    hi guys - is Bootcamp the best way to run windows 8.x on a mac with el capitan? I have seen posts talking about issues with partitions etc etc. Is it better to install windows WITHOUT using bootcamp? If so, how?!

    cheers :)

    I'd suggest using bootcamp. It's true you'll run into some problems when resizing partitions, but I think it's safer to do it the "Apple way"

    Just do it with bootcamp.
    But remember: never ever adjust partitions with Windows utilities. Always go into OS X and make your changes.



    (Unless you're using CCC. If you don't know what this is then stick to the above.)
