We love to own a Mac / MacBook Pro but the main problem of the hardware is the program compatibility, only 20% out of 100 percent apps run on Windows. And also Mac owners sometimes need to have Windows. For the offspring of Microsoft more PC-compatible software, but if you are a gamer, you need Windows to run the most popular game titles.
There are two simple ways to run Windows 10 on your Mac that do not require a restart of the computer, which is important for the technology Bootcamp.
Method #1 : Parallels Desktop
The most convenient way to use Windows 10 on your Mac is download Parallels Desktop for OS X, the software is paid, but provides a free trial period also. This is the best option considering the features offered and ease of use.
Step #1: Before you use Parallels, you should get a copy of Windows 10. Download the system image in ISO format can here. Most users will need a 64-bit version of Windows 10 in Russian, but perhaps your requirements may differ. Download the file system on your Mac.
Step #2: Then download your copy of Parallels Desktop for OS X from here. Select the option to “Try now” or “Buy” and download the DMG file. After downloading, unpack the archive and follow the installation process. If you decide to buy Parallels, you can just enter the license key for full access to all features of the software. Otherwise, choose a free trial 14-day period.
Launch Parallels Desktop and start the installation of Windows 10. You will be offered three options: to obtain a Windows 10 from the Microsoft website, install Windows from the disc or from an image file or to migrate Windows from another PC. We fit the second option. The program will pick up the ISO file automatically. If not, select the location of the image manually.
Step #3: Moving through the pages with the settings, uncheck “This version requires a license key”. You will be asked to choose the method of using a virtual machine and allocate the available memory. You can change the settings later, so don’t give much importance to them. You must also choose a name and specify the location for storing Windows image 10.
Step #4: After finishing all necessary settings Parallels will load Windows. Select the “Home version” and start the installation process. After a few minutes Windows 10 will be installed on your Mac. Parallels has a Coherence mode that allows you to use the features of Windows 10 simultaneously running OS X. To switch to the full screen display of Windows, go to Parallels menu in Finder and select View -> Exit Coherence mode.
