Feb 15, 2014 Boot Camp is a Mac OS X utility that lets you run Windows on your Mac without relying on virtual machines or crippled emulators. Boot Camp supports Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 (with OS.

Ready to install Boot Camp on your MacBook? The process is surprisingly easy and takes far less time than it takes to install Windows afterward. Follow these steps:

  1. Launch the Boot Camp Assistant.

    The Assistant resides in your Utilities folder inside your Applications folder. Use Launchpad to reach it quickly: Click the Launchpad icon in the Dock, click the Utilities folder icon, and then click the Boot Camp Assistant icon.

    It’s a good idea to click the Print Installation & Setup Guide button on the Introduction screen. Keep this additional documentation handy just in case you have questions about running Windows.

  2. Click Continue at the Introduction screen.

    The Boot Camp Assistant Support Software screen appears.

  3. Click the Download the Windows Support Software for This Mac radio button and click Continue.

    Boot Camp Assistant can copy these drivers to a blank CD, blank DVD, or to an external drive. The CD is the easiest choice. You load this disc after your Windows installation is complete, and it provides all the drivers that Windows needs for your Mac’s hardware.

    Reducing the CPU load. Lower the Sample Rate. Open Live's Preferences → Audio. Lower sample rates = lower CPU usage. Try setting it to a value of 44100 or 48000 Hz. Increase the Buffer Size. Disable unused inputs and outputs. Abnormal CPU spikes Ableton 10 with macbook pro mojave. Up until recently I was using a 2012 Mac Mini i7 and i5 MBP on Mavericks and Live 9. Both did the job pretty well without 0 crashes but the i5 MBP didn't have much headroom and I was travelling a lot. CPU spikes and glitches in Ableton 10.1 en-us. I'm having big troubles trying to run Massive X on Ableton 10.1, the CPU goes crazy even with one note of polyphony and no filters/FX. On Reaper it seems to work fine.

  4. Choose the size of your Windows partition and click Create.

    Again, you can devote more hard drive space to your Windows partition than the amount recommended by the Assistant, but don’t forget this important fact: What you reserve for use in Windows cannot be used by Mac OS X Lion! (In other words, don’t devote 300GB of your 500GB drive to your Windows partition because you’ll cramp your style within Mac OS X.)

  5. Reboot if required.

    You may be prompted to launch the Assistant again.

  6. Click Start the Windows Installer and click Continue.

    From this point on, you’re running the Windows installation program, just as you would be if you were using a PC. (Well, actually, you are using a PC now.) Follow the on-screen prompts, which differ for each version of Windows.

When prompted by the Windows Installer to choose the partition to format, choose the partition named BOOTCAMP. Formatting any other partition will likely result in the loss of all your Mac OS X files and data. (This is why you should always back up your existing system before putting Boot Camp to work.)

After Windows has been installed, load the CD you burned with the drivers and support software. Windows should automatically run the Boot Camp driver installation program for you. After the drivers are in place, you’re ready to do the Microsoft Dance.

Are you moving your stuff from Windows (running on your old PC) to, well, Windows (running on your MacBook)? Brings an entirely new meaning to the term Switcher, doesn’t it?

If so, the files and folders on your existing PC can be copied directly to Windows running on your MacBook by using the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard (in Windows XP) or the Windows Easy Transfer utility (in Windows Vista and 7).

To use any of these key combinations, press and hold the keys immediately after pressing the power button to turn on your Mac, or after your Mac begins to restart. Keep holding until the described behavior occurs.

  • Command (⌘)-R: Start up from the built-in macOS Recovery system. Or use Option-Command-R or Shift-Option-Command-R to start up from macOS Recovery over the Internet. macOS Recovery installs different versions of macOS, depending on the key combination you use while starting up. If your Mac is using a firmware password, you're prompted to enter the password.
  • Option (⌥) or Alt: Start up to Startup Manager, which allows you to choose other available startup disks or volumes. If your Mac is using a firmware password, you're prompted to enter the password.
  • Option-Command-P-R:Reset NVRAM or PRAM. If your Mac is using a firmware password, it ignores this key combination or starts up from macOS Recovery.
  • Shift (⇧): Start up in safe mode. Disabled when using a firmware password.
  • D: Start up to the Apple Diagnostics utility. Or use Option-Dto start up to this utility over the Internet. Disabled when using a firmware password.
  • N: Start up from a NetBoot server, if your Mac supports network startup volumes. To use the default boot image on the server, hold down Option-N instead. Disabled when using a firmware password.
  • Command-S: Start up in single-user mode. Disabled in macOS Mojave or later, or when using a firmware password.
  • T: Start up in target disk mode. Disabled when using a firmware password.

  • Be sure to press and hold all keys in the combination together, not one at a time.
  • Shut down your Mac. Then press the power button to turn on your Mac. Then press and hold the keys as your Mac starts up.
  • Wait a few seconds before pressing the keys, to give your Mac more time to recognize the keyboard as it starts up. Some keyboards have a light that flashes briefly at startup, indicating that the keyboard is recognized and ready for use.
  • If you're using a wireless keyboard, plug it into your Mac, if possible. Or use your built-in keyboard or a wired keyboard. If you're using a keyboard made for a PC, such as a keyboard with a Windows logo, try a keyboard made for Mac.
  • If you're using Boot Camp to start up from Microsoft Windows, set Startup Disk preferences to start up from macOS instead. Then shut down or restart and try again.
