    My friend asked me to install windows 8.1 on his iMac but I have no experience with macs and I don't want to mess up his computer.

    Does MTK work on windows 8/8.1 installations on macs? Has anyone here tried it?

    In case you'll get Win 8 running (afaik via bootcamp) MTK should work, it only runs a KMS Emulator on demand to activate the system.

    To address your question directly.

    Yes you can activate on a Mac because your doing a local activation and it is not hardware based.

    Now getting installed will be trickier as you could do it with bootcamp or rEFit.

    Thanks. I'm going to install it through boot camp.
