There are a few ways to run CyberAIO if you own a Mac computer. Running a Windows Server on your Mac is probably the best way, but some people might find running Bootcamp useful especially if they have a more powerful machine. Running CyberAIO on Bootcamp is easy, but keep in mind that you MUST boot into Bootcamp on startup, which means you cannot use Mac OS at the same time you run Bootcamp.
Bootcamp is highly not recommended if you have a low-end Mac or your storage is 128GB or less.
Step 1: Get a Windows ISO image.
You need to create or download a Windows ISO image of the full-install, 64-bit version of Windows.
Do one of the following:
If you have a Windows DVD and an optical drive, follow the instructions in the Apple Support article Create an ISO image for Boot Camp from Windows installation media.
If you don’t have a Windows DVD and an optical drive, download an ISO image from Microsoft.
Step 2: Setting up your Mac for Windows.
- In OS X, quit all open applications, and then open a Finder window and click Applications, Utilities.
- In the Utilities folder, double-click Boot Camp Assistant to launch the assistant.
- Boot Camp Assistant will walk you through the initial setup process.
- Click Continue to begin setup.
- In the Install Windows step, click Choose, then select the ISO image you created or downloaded from Microsoft. Then, select your partition size and click install button. Please note that you cannot resize the partition after that, so partition it wisely. (60GB is decent if you plan to just run CyberAIO)
Step 3: Installing Windows.
Follow these instructions to install Windows on your Mac.
- In the Windows installer, follow the onscreen instructions.
- If you’re asked where to install Windows, just click Next (the installation partition is preselected).
- WARNING: Do not create or delete a partition, or select any other partition. Doing so may delete the entire contents of your macOS partition.
- Follow the onscreen instructions to finish installing Windows.
- After you install the Windows software, your Mac automatically restarts using Windows.
- Use the Windows setup screens to configure Windows.
Step 4: Install Boot Camp Drivers
Click on the following link to download the latest Boot Camp drivers from Apple.
Note that the following steps should be done on your Mac OS by restarting your Mac then press and hold alt until you see a screen where it asks to choose between 2 partitions.
- The download file is a .zip file. Double click it to uncompress it, if it is not automatically uncompressed.
- Double-click the Boot Camp5 folder and copy the entire contents of the .zip file to the root level of a USB flash drive or hard drive that is formatted with the FAT file system.
Reboot, then press and hold alt again to boot into Windows.
- Plug in USB flash drive or hard drive, then navigate to Boot Camp5 folder and double click on setup.exe to install Boot Camp drivers.
