Now that modern Macs use Intel processors, you can run Windows on your Mac without slowdowns or tradeoffs, and with the benefit of configuration snapshots, multiple installations, and the capability to mix Windows and Mac applications. In this book by cross-platform expert Joe Kissell, you'll learn how best to install and use Windows in the virtualization environment created by VMware Fusion 2.

Fusion 3 user? Download Take Control of VMware Fusion 3 for free.

After introducing you to a few basic concepts, the ebook offers advice for mixing Fusion and Boot Camp, and notes the hardware and software you'll need. Then you'll find steps for installing Windows for use in Fusion in these scenarios:

When installing a new copy of Windows XP or Windows Vista From an already-installed copy of Windows under Boot Camp, VMware Fusion 1.x, Parallels Desktop, Virtual PC, or an actual PC From a slipstream disc that contains Windows plus service packs, updates, drivers, and settings On the MacBook Air, which lacks an internal optical drive With Mac OS X Leopard Server as a guest operating system For running a virtual appliance that encapsulates both an operating system and a ready-to-run application

Next, you'll learn how to work with Windows in a Fusion virtual machine, with key details like how to remap mouse buttons, simulate missing keys, set keyboard shortcuts, switch display modes, and work with external devices. Other topics covered include:

Pros and cons of different ways of using Boot Camp and Fusion Configuring Fusion's Settings window to get the most out of the software Real-world advice for smart ways to make Windows and Mac environments simultaneously available on the same computer Options for sharing files between your Windows and Mac environments Keeping your copy of Windows secure, backed up, and updated The basics of working with Fusion from the command line for advanced users

Thanks to the tech reviewers at VMware who gave readily of their time, helping us to create a richly detailed and useful ebook.

Special questions you'll find answers to include these:

How do I keep my Windows installation in its own screen in Spaces? What's the best way to configure the Processors setting to give Windows multiple processors without hobbling my Mac? Where do I find drivers for proprietary Apple hardware like the iSight, Apple Remote, and Bluetooth transceiver? Which Boot Camp driver should I disable? What are my options for right-clicking in Windows? What should I do if Windows refuses to shut down or restart? Help! My mouse pointer keeps disappearing when I'm running Windows in Fusion. What should I do? How do I press the all-important Control-Alt-Delete key combo in Fusion? How do I make the Windows Desktop disappear so my Windows apps appear to run like Mac apps? How do I tell Windows which Web browser to open Web URLs in? What's a virtual appliance and how would I use one in Fusion? What are common parameters for vmrun, the command-line utility that controls Fusion?
