Before you follow any of my advice below answer these.

- How big is your drive total

- How much space do you have on your drive currently (whats left).

 

These are literally your only 3 options, I cannot stress this enough, renegade will no longer work, on that mac, as long as it has a 64 bit ONLY operating system running on it. Nobody can do this for you, and any risk you take in doing this, is yours to bare.

 

Downgrade your OS to a 32 bit version

So unless you downgrade your OS and I cba to even give you the steps for that cos I don't know much about it... but here is some instructions, I have no idea what the requirements are, all I know - is that its a shit option, and if this were me, just no.  Quick google below got that result.

OR

New Laptop running windows

Buy a cheap laptop - even a potato laptop can play ren, in fact, your mac is probably terrible at playing ren, you just don't release.

OR

Install windows alongside your mac operating system

You need to install a bootcamp windows onto your mac(you basically have DUAL operating systems), which involves having a LEGIT windows 10 key, I won't talk about piracy on this forum, figure that bit out yourself.

 

First, make sure you have at least 50GB of space available, that should be more than enough to install windows, renegade and maybe a few optional extras you might use in windows - YOU WILL BE BOUND TO THIS 50GB, and 50GB is a very low amount - this is literally just for renegade, it all depends on how much space you have available, and how big your current drive is, and how much you can afford to "lose" to windows - It takes great work to claim it back to the Mac side once windows grabs it(without resetting the whole mac), so make sure you give it enough space, but additionally, make sure you don't take so much that you cant use any more on your mac side any more.


First - back up all of your shit - cos if this somehow goes horribly wrong, you've lost everything, you are going to be formatting a portion of you're drive, making it ready for windows.
 

00:00 - 02:00 - He explains you need an ISO file of Windows 10 - which is basically, a CD/DVD copy of windows, that is bundled up into a file.

That can be found here https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/software-download/windows10 using the media creation tool

02:00 - 06:07 - He explains the bootcamp wizard, this will be setup depending on how much space you have on your drive available, make sure you give windows AT LEAST 50GB, if you do not have that space available, or you do not want to commit that much to it, you're shit out of luck.

06:47 - Installing windows, entering license key + how to use this new setup in general

You got plenty of space then, if I were you, I would give windows like 150, then at least if you need the windows side for other stuff, you can
