Windows and Mac Support

WeHeartPCandMacAt Bold City IT, we don’t get caught up in the Mac vs PC debate. Both Apple and Microsoft make great operating systems, and each of them have their own problems too. That’s why we support Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 8.1 and Mac OS X 10.0 Puma through 10.9 Mavericks. Whether you are getting a blue screen of death or a beach ball of death, we’re here to help! We can help you with registry errors, crashed hard drives, driver problems, crashing programs, files opening in the wrong program, lost files and more.

Is the ending support for Windows XP making you consider getting a Macbook Pro or a Mac Mini? Perhaps your old iMac has seen it’s better days, and you’re thinking about getting a Microsoft Surface or one of those convertible tablets with Windows 8.1? Either way, Bold City IT can help you transfer your files and settings, and give you a tour of your new operating system home. If you want the best of both worlds, we specialize in installing Windows on Macs! With Bootcamp you can choose to boot into Mac OS or Windows, and with Parallels you can run Windows and Mac OS at the same time! Bold City IT can help you decide which is the best option for you and install it for you.

TuxWe support Linux too! If you are having trouble with a distribution of SUSE, Red Hat, Ubuntu, Puppy, Mint, or even a distribution we haven’t heard of yet, we are glad to help you out. If you’d like to try out Linux, but you aren’t ready to try to install it yourself, we can help you determine which distribution would work best for you, install it on your computer and show you how it works. If you just want to try Linux but you’re not ready to leave Windows or Mac OS, we can help you setup a dual boot so you can run both on your computer.

Looking to upgrade your computer from Windows XP, but don’t think your computer can handle Windows 7 or 8, and you’re not ready to upgrade your hardware? Linux Mint is a great replacement. It is one of the most “Windows XP”-like distributions of Linux. You can even run popular Windows programs on it with the addition of a couple of programs. Bold City IT can install the latest version of Linux Mint on your computer, set it up, and show you how it works.
