Windows On Mac :: Bootcamp Driver Wont Open In XP?

Dec 30, 2010

I recently got a Macbook Pro and decided to put windows on it. The installation went fine I formatted it with FAT, and now I have to install the drivers. Since I dont have a CD I downloaded the 2.1 BC Drivers from the apple website and put it into my windows, but now when I got to open the drivers in windows it simply does nothing no matter what I try. Did I do something wrong or did I simply forget something

Windows On Mac :: Windows 7 On Macbook Pro - Bootcamp Driver Won't Work

May 20, 2009

I have a Macbook Pro 15" , C2D 2.33ghz. I have the 7100 version of Windows 7 and everything worked perfectly except for the sound.

No matter which bootcamp driver I try or even Realtek's own vista one nothing works.

I downloaded the bootcamp 2.1 drivers and everything installed correctly , including the realtek ones. All the hardware looks fine in device manager but I dont hear anything out.

Should the default be speakers? It seems that it keeps the driver as microsofts own and it doesnt say anything about realtek. Could that be the problem?

I did not try the microphone jack yet but will in a few minutes.

Even if there is a hack , Im willing to try it. What is the exact audio chipset on this model of macbook pro?

Windows On Mac :: Win 7 Bootcamp Driver Disk Refuses To Run

Apr 19, 2009

I have recently installed Win 7 on my 17" iMac using Bootcamp. The partitioning went fine, so did the Windows install, but the Bootcamp driver disk refuses to run. I have tried 'Troubleshoot Compatibility' using every logical option, but to no avail. This seems kind of wierd to me, as no one else has mentioned a problem like this.

I have:
Retail boxed leopard, with 10.5.1 on the Disc
Mac OS 10.5.6 installed
Bootcamp 2.0
Win 7, Build 7000

17" 2GHz Core 2 Duo iMac 2 GB RAM 160GB HDD, newly formatted, with 10GB for Win 7 (I am storing all of my Data and apps on an exteral drive) As far as I know, Win 7 and Mac OS are fully updated. Win 7 runs fine, but the lack of drivers means very little works. It can just about manage the internet...

Windows On Mac :: Best Graphics Driver For Radeon HD4850 Win7 BootCamp

Aug 3, 2010

I have a late 2009 27" iMac i7 with the Radeon 4850, I am running windows 7 64 bit on bootcamp for gaming. I was wanting to know if anybody has found which is the best performing graphics driver, I am currently using the driver installed via bootcamp 3.0, the driver from bootcamp 3.1 messed up the colour detail (would not display 32bit colours properly). Has anybody found a decent functional driver from ATI or have modded a driver for better performance? Those people who have successfully played top end games at high settings what driver do you use?

Windows On Mac :: Open Up Bootcamp Partition (running Windows 7) In VMWare

Sep 4, 2009

So I am trying to open up my bootcamp partition (running windows 7) in VMWare and I get this error message: Cannot open the disk '/Users/brandonquirarte/Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion/Virtual Machines/Boot Camp/%2Fdev%2Fdisk0/Boot Camp partition.vmwarevm/Boot Camp partition.vmdk' or one of the snapshot disks it depends on. It was working just fine before the upgrade to Snow Leopard but I am not sure if that has anything to do with it. I had to reinstall Windows 7 after I tried installing the Bootcamp 3.0 drivers so that may be more of the issue. I didn't test to see if would work still when I upgraded to Snow Leopard.

Windows On Mac :: BootCamp Assistant Will Not Open - Error Message

Aug 5, 2009

I bought this mac last year and decided to put a windows partition on it. I decided the partition was way too small so I erased it and made a new one. This time when I went to make a partition on my hard drive it said the beta had expired. I looked deeper into this message and some sites said to put your clock was to before September of 2007. Doing so I now get this message. Bootcamp assistant cannot open. This version of Boot Camp Assistant is not supported in Mac OS X v10.5. Use Boot Camp Assistant 2.0, located in /Applications/Utilities/. Well first I don't have a boot camp 2.0. So I downloaded the combo pack to make sure my firmware and such was up to date which it was. I still get this error message.

IMac :: Bootcamp And Display Driver Crashing?

Nov 18, 2009

Got myself a 27" iMac i7 which was delivered today.

Been playing with it all day in OSX and initially installed Win7 but I the display driver keep crashing and I was getting artifacts on screen then the message saying that it had recovered successfully.

Having read that Win7 was not fully supported I assumed that this was the problem so installed Vista, but got the same problem.

Screen stalled, then goes blank for a second and then the error message in the task bar.

I have just ran all the MS updates and also installed the latest GFX driver from ATI to see if that makes a difference.

I have also just ran 3dmark06 and that ran OK but I was expecting the fans to kick in at some point

Software :: Sony DCR-PC3E Driver - Set Up Bootcamp

Aug 31, 2008

New to Macs, but just got first iMac8,1 OSX 10.5.4I can't get it see see my old, but perfectly good Sony Camcorder. I have set up bootcamp and when booted to XP it finds the camera perfectly and can capture the video. I assume therefore that the camera, firewire cable and hardware are all ok. It must be the lack of a driver. I have looked but can't find one. This is slightly frustrating as one of the reasons for getting a Mac was that I was told it was fantastic for AV work.

Windows On Mac :: The Windows Version Of The Trackpad's Driver Poorly Implemented?

Nov 8, 2010

I am using a MBP 17" (2010 model). The trackpad functions very well under Mac OS/X.However, under Windows Vista 64-bit, it does not behave as if it were under Mac OS. For example, even I did not click on the trackpad, it did it by itself. Is it a driver problem or setting problem? I know that under bootcamp, we can change the trackpad settings. If it is the latter case, could anybody please let me know the configurations/settings that allow the trackpad to behave exactly the same it does under Mac OS/X?

MacBook Air :: Migrating Bootcamp Image / Blackbook Bootcamp Partition Having Windows

Jan 30, 2009

Used migration assistant to move my Blackbook apps and settings to the Air using a Time Machine backup from my Time Capsule - wirelessly. Two hours later (not terrible) and I'm using my Air with all my apps and setting - fantastic.

Question: My Blackbook also has a Bootcamp partition running Windows - is there a way to take that image and migrate it to my MB Air? I'd rather not have to purchase the Superdrive and re-install/setup the Windows OS on my Air....

Windows On Mac :: BootCamp Fails To Make BootCamp Partition

Jan 23, 2009

I want to try out Windows 7. During this process though I deleted my winXP partition. When I went to create a new BootCamp partition in The BootCamp SetUp Assisstant, it failed to create the partition on my harddrive.

I was greeted with the error, "BootCamp SetUp assistant failed to yada yada yada, please backup and reformat your harddrive."

So my question is do I really have to reinstall Mac OS X? (I backup with TimeMachine so it won't be a big deal but still thats a very long process.) Do you guys have any tips or anything to get Mac OS X to partition my main HDD?

Windows On Mac :: How To Update Graphics Driver

Sep 23, 2010

Im guessing that updating my graphics drivers via OSX dosen't do anything for the Windows side.

Do I run the apple software update in bootcamp? Or do I actually go to the nvidia site and download/install them?

Also, what is the best driver right now for gaming performance in Windows?

I know this is probably in the wrong section but the windows and gaming sections don't get much love.

OS X :: Windows Mobile USB Driver For Tethering Via USB?

Feb 26, 2008

Does anyone know of a Windows Mobile USB Driver that would allow me to tether my HTC Kaiser to my MacBook Pro via USB? I've been tethering via Bluetooth and that works fine, but doing it this way runs the battery down on my HTC quite fast, especially with HSDPA active. Also, it would allow me to keep the Macbook Pro plugged in and have the phone charged/charging via the USB connection, so that I don't kill the battery on the phone. I'm sure I'm not hte only Windows Mobile user here and I'm hoping someone else has found a solution.

Upon start up, it's asking for Direct X, installed that as well. Then it said that it failed because I don't have the driver. I checked and the driver is non-existent for graphics.

Windows On Mac :: Finding Device Driver On 7?

Aug 2, 2010

have only just started the journey of installing a VM on my iMac and have hit what looks like a common problem but I cant see a common answer!

I've got an iMac running OS X (10.6.4 to be precise) with a 3GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 4GB RAM and 500G HDD.

I installed Parallels 5 preferring it over bootcamp because you can switch over without having to reboot.

I've then download Windows 7 64bit version from the Microsoft store and run through the installation / creation of a new vm in parallels.

All seemed to be fine for the first 45 seconds but then I've hit a pop up called "Load Driver" saying "No device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click OK" - on clicking OK out of that pop up - I have a choice to BROWSE, RESCAN to find the right "driver".

My question is - what is the right driver? what device is the driver needed for? I've searched around and most suggestions point towards going into device manager - well - I'm still on STAGE 1 of the install of Windows 7 where it says its "Collecting information".

When I downloaded Windows 7 from the Microsoft store it provided 2 files:

Windows7_Professional_ISO_64bit.iso and bootsect.exe

but no other files. I stored it in Documents/Windows7 files.

Apologies if you've had this question a thousand time but could someone kindly suggest how I find out what device drivers I need?

Windows On Mac :: How To Upgrade Existing Bootcamp 2.1 To Bootcamp 3.0

Aug 28, 2009

Maybe I'm just over thinking this, but Apple never posted a KB article about how to upgrade an existing bootcamp partition with the new snow leopard bootcamp 3.0 drivers. I'm assuming if you already have bootcamp 2.1 you boot up in boot camp and then insert the snow leopard disc in order to upgrade the drivers to 3.0 correct? Or do I have to erase my stupid bootcamp partition and reinstall it all over again using the new leopard boot camp assistant in order to get to 3.0?

OS X :: Install Driver For Windows Shared Printer

I installed the OSX driver provided on the Canon page, I can see the printer in the network printers but when I am asked to choose the driver I can't see the correct model listed. On the other hand, if I simply connect the same printer via USB, to my MBP it is recognized directly. When I'm asked to provide the driver while adding the printer via the network, there is also the option to browse to the driver location. So my question is, where are the can I find the right driver on the OS?

Windows On Mac :: I5 Display Driver Stopped Responding?

I installed bootbcamp today and windows 7 and after a period of time the following message would pop up after the screen froze and various artifacts would appear or the screen would be divided in half horizontally with artifacts in the middle.

"Display driver stopped responding and has successfully recovered"

I don't think this is a bootcamp driver issue. This is an issue between ATI and Microsoft and has been going on at least since 2007. Not much to say about it at this point, but I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this issue with the new iMac's and windows?
