    Okay, guys.

    I have an iMac Snow Leopard, finder version 10.6.8. I want to purchase a video-game called "NBA 2K12" for my iMac, but it's only for PC. So I believe I need to use Boot Camp that's on my computer to be able to run Windows 7 and other PC games, such as NBA 2K12. Right?

    So if I'm right so far, I did click on Boot Camp Assistant. I clicked continue and it says to either:

    "Download the Windows support for this Mac" Where can I do that?

    and the other option said

    "I have the Mac OS X installation disk that came with my Mac or I have already downloaded the Windows support software for this Mac to a CD, DVD, or external disk"

    A disk I got was the iLife '11 Install DVD that was a CPU Drop-In DVD, but if thats not the disk then I don't know what they are talking about.

    So in conclusion, how can I play a PC Game (NBA 2K12) with out downloading it off the internet using a torrent? Thanks guys.

    You will need a Windows 7 install disc - so that is something you will have to bu at Best Buy, Walmart, or any other store. The disc will cost you around 150 dollars.

    Here is a step by step setup guide. It is for 10.7 but pretty much the same for 10.6

    This guide is great too.

    On a side note - mentioning downloading illegal software is frowned on here in the forums by the mods so best to keep that on the DL if you are doing that.

    If you are a student you can get windows 7 home premium for $30. Or buy an oem version on newegg.com for around $89
