    Hi! I just installed Winbdows XP on the Mac, but I have some problems!


    First of all. How do I connect to the internett? There is no button such as "Connect to" or something in the Start! How do I connect!?

    And there is no sound and I can't change the sound because the F1 to F12 and the Eject button doesn't work! And how do I double-click?

    We're not mailing you. This is a forum; we do responses here. :D

    Put your Leopard disk or your Install Disk 1 (gray) in your computer booted into Windows and do what it says to do.

    And remember, Internet Explorer is good for only one thing: downloading Firefox. :D

    Ditto on putting your Leopard install disc in while in Windows, it will allow you to install the Apple drivers that you need for your sound and eject button to work.

    How are you connected to the internet? By ethernet cable or airport (wifi)?

    Which Mac do you have? If you have the latest Alu MacBook, you might find double clicking on the trackpad tricky unless you keep your finger very still... as the pointer tends to move very easily with the slightest movement of your finger. You would find Windows easier to use on the latest MacBook if you had a mouse.

    Thank you <3 !

    Okks alot! Never though I could use the Leopard disk while in Windows, thank you!

    And, yeah, I already know Firefox is best xD:p
    Or maybe Safari? .... :apple:

    BTW,
    any good tips to make Snow Leopard faster, and turn off the function that iTunes opens when I press Play-button on keyboard... Irritating when using Spotify -.- :mad::mad:
