Installing BERNINA software on Apple products

BERNINA Embroidery Software will only be supported on Apple Macintosh computers that meet or exceed the minimum system requirements needed for V8.1 (see table below) and that have Windows 7/8.1/10 installed on a dedicated partition via Boot Camp.

*Please note the DesignWorks Suite also requires a graphics processor that supports DirectX 9 or greater.

BERNINA recommends using Apple’s built in partition utility, Boot Camp, as opposed to third party partition tools.

For more information on using Boot Camp and installing Windows on an Apple computer, please visit Apple’s support website, https://support.apple.com or contact an Apple specialist.
