Question about Boot Camp - Page 2

post #11 of 14
As others have stated already it allows you to have two operating systems on one Hard drive in different partitions of that single hard drive or on another internal or external drive..

Now as for running both OS at the same time within each other, no possible with out the help of having a virutalmachine running..
Like VMware or Parallels...
These allow you to run Mac OS and then run VMware to run windows side by side in one place...

Honestly if you could some how use OCN for sources...
Show him this thread and bam done..

Right now im running dual boot win7 and mac..im on the macside currently while i use the windows side only for when i have to for a windows class...and that is honestly really rare unless im doing registry stuff..

Another thing is that with bootcamp you can transfer files between each partitions....
So say you have pics on the windows side...well your on the mac and you have all this stuff open and you really dont want to restart well all you have to do is go under finder and look for the file or picture under the bootcamp partition...
So in a way that is running bot at the sametime only for filesharing between partitions..

Or you could just call steve jobs..ohhh...to soon...

Thanks! I'm writing up an email and doing exactly this. I know I'm right. It's not like I incorrectly answered the question and am now scrambling to find ideas which fit my answer, I specifically knew the right answer and I deserve credit for it. Simple.

The truth is the teacher has clearly worded the question very poorly.
Thanks. I wrote up an email mentioning that.

If the file is stored on the windows side, to access those files, you don't need to have windows open. Given what you said, I could argue that if I plug in a USB into a linux-based pc and uploaded files, and then took that USB and stuck it into my macbook pro, I would be running Linux AND Mac OS X, which is obviously not the case.

and yeah, I linked a few forum questions which ask the same question. If I honestly don't get the mark for this i'll be pretty pissed off. i WILL go over his head and have my statement confirmed with the tech department of my school, just to prove him wrong. I'm not going to lose marks for something i know I'm right about. period.

If I were you, I would fight for the answer as well. Clearly, the one who answered that it should be a true statement, did not know much about boot camp either.

If it were parallels he was talking about, then the answer would be yes, but with boot camp, you can never do that.

Might as well bring a macbook and let him try it out for himself. Must have watched a faux boot camp video on youtube.

From the wording, the answer to the original question is clearly false, as Bootcamp alone provides a tool for dual booting from either OS X or Windows, but not both at the same time.

However, it is possible to use Parallels and Also VMware to run a bootcamp windows install in a virtual machine from within OS X.

Run bootcamp in parallels
