Method 2: Use Boot Camp to run Windows on Mac

If you want to play CSGO on Mac as if you were playing it on Windows, you can use Boot Camp to run Windows on your Mac device. Boot Camp is a utility that comes with Mac OS X that allows you to create a partition on your hard drive and install Windows on it. This way, you can switch between Mac OS X and Windows whenever you want and enjoy the best of both worlds.

However, using Boot Camp to run Windows on Mac requires some preparation and technical skills. You will need to have a valid Windows license, an ISO file of Windows 10, a USB drive with at least 16 GB of space, and a backup of your Mac data. You will also need to follow some steps to create the partition, install Windows, and set up the drivers. To use Boot Camp to run Windows on Mac, follow these steps:

  • Go to and download the ISO file of Windows 10. Choose the edition, language, and architecture that match your Windows license and your Mac device.

  • Insert your USB drive into your Mac and format it as MS-DOS (FAT) using Disk Utility.

  • Open the Boot Camp Assistant app from the Utilities folder or the Launchpad.

  • Click on "Continue" and check the boxes for "Create a Windows 10 or later install disk" and "Install Windows 10 or later version". Click on "Continue" again.

  • Select the ISO file of Windows 10 that you downloaded and the USB drive that you formatted. Click on "Continue" and wait for the app to copy the files to the USB drive.

  • Select the size of the partition that you want to create for Windows. You can drag the slider to adjust the size or enter a specific value. Make sure you have enough space for both Mac OS X and Windows. Click on "Install" and enter your Mac password if prompted.

  • Wait for the app to create the partition and restart your Mac. Your Mac will boot into the Windows installer from the USB drive.

  • Select your language, time, currency, keyboard, and click on "Next". Click on "Install now" and enter your Windows product key if you have one. If not, click on "I don't have a product key" and choose the edition that matches your license.

  • Accept the license terms and click on "Next". Choose "Custom: Install Windows only (advanced)" and select the partition labeled as "BOOTCAMP". Click on "Next" and wait for the installation to complete.

  • Your Mac will restart several times during the installation. Follow the instructions on the screen to set up your Windows account, preferences, and settings.

After you log in to Windows, insert your USB drive again and open it. Run the setup.exe file from the Boot Camp folder
