Hi there,
First of all, I am a newbie to macs (just very recently bought my first).
My question is what is 'remote'?

One of my mate's mate who owns a Macbook clicked on 'remote' and the OS X system changed to Windows server 2008. How can I do this? Does this require installing another system?

Like I said its probably a silly question but I'm a novice to this and would like an insight please.

Thanks in advance for any guidance.

Are you sure it was called remote? Intel macs come with Boot Camp which allows you to install Windows on a partition of the hard drive. You can then boot to Mac OSX or Windows when you want.

There are loads of other pieces of software that do similar things, so it could be one of them (some others include Parallels and VMware Fusion)

i believe its a remote desktop app, it connects to another computer (obviously that one being a server 2008 machine)

Well not sure, but I don't think it was a dual bootup sort. He typed 'remote' in the Spotlight, and clicked on the result and voila.. changed to windows server :roll:

Agree with above. See here for some info on that http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/networking_security/remotedesktopconnectionclient.html

Not sure that's what the OP will want to hear though! good luck.
