MacBook :: Installed Vista But No Correct Bootcamp Drivers?

Oct 25, 2008

I left my Leopard Discs at home and will be away for about a month. I installed Vista but do not have the correct Boot Camp drivers. I was wondering if anyone knows where to find the newest drivers. I need the ones from the disc that came with the computer if anyone can put a link or upload them. Tried Boot Camp 2.0 and update from April to 2.1. Does not have the correct display drivers, trackpad, and network drivers.

Windows On Mac :: Installed Vista Via Bootcamp - Install Drivers Without An Install Disk?

Apr 10, 2009

I searched for a while trying to find the answer but did not find it. I just installed Vista Business via Bootcamp. I am not able to access the internet or anything. If I read the help stuff right I need to use the OSX install disk to install the drivers. The problem is, I don't have the install disk. Is there any other way to get the drivers? Or am I just missing something easier?

MacBook Pro ::MBP 13inch With Vista Installed On Bootcamp But Low Sound?

Jul 5, 2009

I've got the latest MBP 13inch with Vista installed on Bootcamp. I've turned the sound all the way up and it's still very low. I've got all the latest boot camp drivers installed, I've tried viewing different videos trying to see if the video was the culprit, but unfortunately it wasn't. I searched around and I've seen others with this issue, but haven't found a fix.

I've watched the same videos in Leopard that I did in Vista and they're a lot louder.

Windows On Mac :: Installed Vista Through BootCamp On MacBook Pro But There's No Sound?

May 21, 2010

I recently installed Windows Vista Home Basic through BootCamp on my MacBook Pro. Everything works fine, except for the one thing that there's no sound... At the moment if i start something with sound, you'll see "the green bar jump up and down" But no sound... Tried to search for an audio driver, and installed one, (not sure which one it has to be though) But it didn't help...

Have tried uninstalling the whole lot and reinstalling it again, same thing happened, when i put in the Max OS x for the driver installation i recall it saying removing Realtek Audio or something, so search for that, but didn't help :/

Any ideas to would i could try to do?

Windows On Mac :: Can't Install Bootcamp Drivers On Vista X64?

Dec 31, 2008

I have a late 2008 (the brand new) Macbook Pro 2.53 C2D and I installed vista on a partition succesffuly. But once I try to install Boot Camp drivers, it doesn't work. I open up the leopard DVD, and it starts installing all the network cards and video cards, but then it gets to "KeyAgent" and it says it failed to install because I it couldn't access startup services. I pressed ignore, then it came to "MacHal" (i think, somehting like that) and it said the same thing. I looked under my account privelges, and I'm an administrator with access to everything, so I'm not sure what's going on.

Windows On Mac :: BootCamp Partition - Vista NOT Installed - Partition Gone

Aug 5, 2009

I have a 13" MBP with a 250 gb hd, I partitioned the HD 25gb for Windows XP shortly after I bought it. I was unable to install my copy of windows, contacted apple after exhaustive search as to why... Long story short, I now have Vista to install... When I went back to Boot Camp Assistant; partition was gone. Researched... ran disk utility, repaired and erased partition. Bootcamp HD now shows up in desktop, still not in bootcamp assistant. Since I am unable to locate in assistant; would there be any problems with just installing Vista off the install disk by restarting? Any ideas what to do if this is not a good idea (short of restoring)?

MacBook Pro :: Windows 7 Not Loading NVIDIA Drivers / Requires Bootcamp To Load Drivers?

Oct 19, 2009

I recently installed the 64 bit Windows 7 Ultimate operating system onto my MacBook Pro 13 inch. I have the most basic Macbook Pro 13 inch with nothing fancy added. Whenever I load up the Windows 7 OS on my Macbook, it never utilizes or even realizes that I have the NVIDIA graphics card in my laptop. It instead believes I have some integrated graphics card that cannot even run the most basic of PC games. I know my laptop can run these games because on OSX it runs multiple games with higher requirements than these games I am trying to run on Windows.

Basic question: How do I get bootcamp or whatever else to make Windows 7 realize I have a NVIDIA card and drivers. Sorry if I am coming off as stupid or confusing.

Windows On Mac :: New Drive Installed XP Installed Now No Drivers Or Internet?

Dec 5, 2010

Installed a new 750GB drive into my MacBookPro 5.1 Couldn't get Winclone to make image so I was forced to start from scratch with a new XP installation.

My MBP is partitioned 25%Mac & 75%XP with bootcamp and I have the old drive in a enclosure connected with a firewire. So all of old files are on the external drive now.

After installing XP I have no internet connection, drivers etc... However if I boot up on the mac side everything works fine. (I cloned the mac os already with Carbon copy).

So can I just copy all my old drivers over to the new drive? If yes how and if no how do I get them installed on the new harddrive. The MBP came with everything preinstalled.

Windows On Mac :: Correct Time Zone Running Vista?

May 21, 2009

I'm running Vista SP1 64-bit on a 17" unibody macbook pro. Whenever I start up windows, it sets the time to GMT/UTC. I have set it to the correct time zone, and enable internet syncing. However, no matter how many times I reset the clock, whenever the computer is restarted, it sets itself to UTC again.

Now this could have to do with the fact that Boot Camp is not installed on the Windows side. I find that it takes too much effort to update drivers that way, so I install all of the drivers manually. I have a feeling that this time issue may have something to do with that, as I believe apple's bios is set to UTC, and os x corrects itself via software, where windows sets the bios itself and runs off of it.

MacBook Pro :: Printer Software Installed But Drivers Not Appear In List

Aug 28, 2010

Bought a HP Laserjet Pro 8500 A909g. I have installed software but driver never appears in list so there is an option to manually select it. Sometimes the printer then appears and other times it doesn't. Message then appears: If your device is not listed it is not supported by this installer. Downloaded installer again from HP but still no good. Printer is wireless but was given USB cable to connect to Macbook Pro as don't have internet at home and was told it would be no problem. Message now appearing saying if USB port on printer is at front (mine is) do not connect to USB on Macbook. However, it doesn't bother to tell me how to connect it any other way. Nothing in manual. Running out of patience. Just starting working for myself and have clients waiting for designs which I can't even print off.

Mac Pro :: Finding X64 XP Pro SP2 And New X64 Vista Drivers

Has anyone tried installing x64 XP Pro SP2 using the new x64 drivers that shipped with the early 2008 Mac Pros?

I mainly want to know if the Apple keyboard mapping software works under x64 XP Pro SP2, being that all other drivers for a Mac Pro with x64 Windows can be found elsewhere if all else fails.

Mac Mini :: Will It Run Vista 32-Bit With Drivers?

Jul 21, 2010

Ok, so I bought a Mac Mini in April of 09 and it has the drivers for XP 32-bit, but are the drivers there for Vista and are the drivers for Windows 7 the same.

I might upgrade from XP on Boot Camp, but it doesn't make sense to goto Vista when 7 is out and the same price.

MacBook Pro :: BootCamp And Partitioning - OS X And Vista

Jul 16, 2010

I am planning on a getting my MPB (15") very soon and having been a windows user all along, I have a couple of questions about putting windows on my new MPB.

-Win7 Upgrade: I currently own a valid copy of XP and a Windows 7 Ultimate upgrade disc. Is it possible to install the XP, then upgrade to Win7 on my MBP? If so, are there any guides/tricks I should know of before attempting?

-Timing: Can I install the windows after I've played around in OS X and installed/saved a couple of things there? Will installing windows wipe out my stuff in OS X or is it completely unrelated? My concern here is that I will be getting my MPB before I can get my copy of windows back, and during that time I need to do some work.

-Partitioning amount: this kind of ties into the previous question. How much should I partition (% wise) for the windows, and when should I do it?

Windows On Mac :: Need Proper Drivers For Vista Enterprise RTM

Nov 18, 2006

I have a few issues with device support I thought I ping this community about:

1) Wireless Adapater doesn't show up in Device Manager (and doesn't work of course)
2) iSight, Network Controller and Performance counters all have (i) issues in Device Manager (update driver online doesn't work)
3) Resolution maxes out at 1280x800 (me thinks this is because it thinks the monitor is a generic PnP monitor)

Any ideas on where to get the proper drivers? I did the bootcamp stuff using the latest and greatest with the new MacOS.

Windows On Mac :: Finding Network Drivers For Vista 32-bit?

Jul 15, 2009

I tried to install Vista business edition 32-bit (without SP1) on my Unibody Macbook Pro (late 2008 model). After that, I installed

1) Bootcamp 2.0 from a retail Leopard DVD and its upgraded version (2.1)
2) nForce 730i driver (from NVIDIA web site)
3) Geforce 9000M series graphics card driver (from NVIDIA web site)

Currently there are still several driver issues:

1) "Network Controller" driver is not working.
2) "Apple iSight" driver is not working.
3) No wireless device shown up in my device manager.
4) No sound.

I don't have my original MacOSX DVD with me. Does anybody know how to fix those problems?

Windows On Mac :: Boot Camp Drivers Not Available Under Vista?

Apr 15, 2010

So I installed Vista and then popped in the OS X Disc 1 to install the drivers, like I did with Win XP before. All I get on screen is the window where I get to choose whether to install OS X on my MBAir or install disc drivers.

Do i need a specific version of Vista to be able to install boot camp drivers ? SP1 or SP2 maybe ?

I remember I had the same issue with Win XP SP3, which seemed weird since it's supposed to be even more complete then the previous version, right ?
