  • NOTE: Due to complications with software on Mac OS X, purchasing a Windows computer is advised. If you already purchased a Mac: A 120-256GB partition must be created using Boot Camp to accommodate the Microsoft Windows operating system and other applications that will be used in Business.  It is recommended that the Windows partition be created when the student first purchases the Mac.  Windows OS is available to students at no cost through the College of Business/Microsoft Academic Alliance.  Visit the College of Business DreamSpark™ site for more information, or contact the College of Business Helpdesk for assistance.  For partitioning instructions and installing Windows OS on the laptop, visit: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201468 or go to the Milne Computing Center room 201.
