    Hello


    I have no idea about Bootcamp but was thinking of setting up a partition or external drive just so I can run games from it.

    Is there guide anywhere of what I would require and how to do it, size of drive/partition what software is required etc etc, as I say I am a complete noob with Bootcamp and Windoze....

    Thanks.

    Edit : I have just found a guide on the above

    Go into Bootcamp Assistant and print the instructions. Note you have to allow Bootcamp Assistant to partition and format the drive, you can only run Bootcamp on a single partition Mac OS Extended (Journalled) drive and it must be in Bay 1 in your Mac Pro to install Windows.

    Windows requires activation, so you will need a new unactivated disc.

    Windows will not install on an external drive - part of their anti-piracy measures.
