Despite the fact that Windows is the most widely used operating system in the world, MAC still has its own unique group of followers. Previously we told you how to make your Ubuntu system look like Windows 7. This time we have something for the die hard MAC lovers. In this post we will tell you how to make Windows 7 look like MAC OS X with Snow Transformation Pack.
Note: Before trying this skin pack, make sure that you have created a system backup in case you wish to revert back to the previous Windows appearance. Since system restore will not revert the changes. The only alternative may be a wipe and load re-installation or a restoration from a backup file.
To get started, download Snow Transformation Pack (link given at the end of this post) and run the setup file. Before you can proceed with the transformation process, you must disable User Account Control, otherwise you might get this UAC (User Account Control) access error. Once the setup is successfully executed, you will be greeted with the welcome prompt. Click Next to continue.
After that, you will be asked to accept the terms and conditions to proceed further with the setup. Accept the terms and conditions and click Next to continue.
In the next step you will get the choice to install the transformation pack with the following three options:
Performance: This will mainly change the look of your Windows.
Customize: This allows choosing what features to install from the transformation pack.
Complete: This will install the entire transformation pack, including 3rd party applications on your Windows 7.
Choose a desired mode and click Next to continue.
If you choose a custom install, you will get the following options, which include the transformation of system files, snow leopard theme and installation of third party tools. You may uncheck any of these options if you like.
In the final step, you will require clicking on the Transform button for the changes to take effect. This will initiate the transformation process. After which your system will get the MAC look.
Finally, you will be asked to restart your system for the changes to take effect.
The transformation pack works so well that even the Windows welcome screen is transformed. That’s all you need to do, after the setup completes, your Windows 7 will look like a Mac OSX Snow Leopard.
