WARNING for M1 Apple M1 users

There is not a way to run Windows on an Apple M1 Macbook at this time. Apple discontinued Bootcamp and neither Parallels nor VMware have released an update that supports the new M1 chip.

Mac memory and drive space requirements

  • You need at least 4 GB of RAM (memory) to run Bootcamp and 8 GB to run a virtual machine
  • You need at least 75 GB of free drive space (more may be needed depending on the number and size of Windows applications.

Note: Windows will not run on a flash/USB drive. If you don't have enough free drive space, you will need to either free up space or find a different computer.
