Windows on intel iMac

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
2 questions smart mac guys:

1. What programs/hardware do I need to run Windows XP full-screen on an external monitor connected to my intel iMac?

2. Can I connect a non-Apple monitor to my iMac?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Your going to have to be more specific.

For #1, do you want Mac OS X to be on the other screen?

For #2, what model iMac do you have?
Why be trapped behind Windows and Gates when you can live freely with a Mac.

Macs:
PowerMac G5 Quad
4 2.5Ghz PowerPC G5 Cores
1GB RAM (will be more soon)
nVidia GeForce 7800 GT Graphics Card
2x500G...

1. none, all you need is the mini DVI or mini VGA connector from apple, $19.

2. any, as long as it has a DVI or VGA cable and you have the before mentioned apple connector for it.


i'm using a macbook pro and currently have a dell monitor connected to it. it works fine in XP as well. I also used to have an iMac and did the same thing, it worked great. just get the connector and plug it in!
