How to Play Windows Games on the MacBook Pro

It is undoubtedly true that in one aspect Windows PCs can trump a MacBook Pro any time, and that sphere is video games. Why Apple refuses to license and recode these games to suit the MacBook, no one will ever know. However, what we do know is that this can be made possible with the help of what is called a ‘bootcamp’ or a virtual drive. Follow the steps below to learn how to set up a bootcamp and play almost all the latest Windows games on your MacBook Pro.

Step 1
Remove all external storage devices plugged into the MacBook Pro.

Step 2
Go to the official Windows website, enter your purchase key, and download the ‘64bit ISO’ file for your Windows.

Step 3
Launch the ‘Bootcamp Assistant’ application from your app list, and in the dialog box which opens, click ‘Continue’.

Step 4
On the next page, click on the ‘Choose’ option and select the downloaded ISO file.

Step 5
Click on the 'Slider' and move it left or right to decide how much space should be given to the Windows partition. Make sure the partition is spacious otherwise your game might face lag problems.

Step 6
Once done, click on the ‘Install’ button and the boot process will begin.

Step 7
After the boot completes your system will ask you for your 'Administrator Password'. Enter it.

Step 8
Once the installation has completed, your MacBook will restart and on your startup page you will be able to choose which OS you want to use, click on 'Windows'.

Step 9
Now that you have successfully partitioned your hard and drive and crated a Windows ISO image, you can install and run almost any game on it.
