Apple Warns of Pending Boot Camp Beta Expiration

Apple Warns of Pending Boot Camp Beta Expiration

by , 12:20 PM EDT, October 1st, 2007

Apple is offering Boot Camp beta 1.4 users a reminder that the software that lets them boot their Mac with Windows instead of Mac OS X is due to expire. The license to use the beta software is set to expire when Mac OS X 10.5, or Leopard, ships some time in October.

Boot Camp beta 1.2 expired on September 30, so users that didn't upgrade to version 1.4 are already past their license expiration date. The company hasn't stated whether or not the version 1.4 beta will stop working once Leopard ships, or if users will simply be outside of the license agreement if they continue to use Boot Camp if they don't upgrade to Mac OS X 10.5.

Apple's Boot Camp warning is available at the company's Support Web site.
