    You'll have to be much more specific. Do you mean replace OSX entirely? Or dual boot it? Or one of the many VM solutions? And what exact model is the Mac?

    You can't as Windows 7 will not run on a PowerPC (G4) processor.

    Not on the iBook's PowerPC processor, you can't.

    Whoops :eek: Virtual PC it is then. To be honest, the OP's username gave me the impression he was trolling so I didn't read very carefully.
