Windows On Mac :: Snow Leopard Killed My Boot Camp Setup?

Aug 29, 2009

I put snow leopard on my mac this afternoon and have been kicking the tires. I ran Parallels 4.0 and the windows worked just fine with my XP Partition. When I tried to boot it up in boot camp however, I got an error telling me it couldn't load windows.

I imagine this is an issue with the drivers, but I can't figure out where the drivers are and how to get them on the windows side.

When I open windows in parallels, I can't find any drivers to load on the DVD for snow leopard's boot camp.

OS X :: Cannot Reinstall The Snow Leopard Nor Install Windows With Boot Camp

Feb 13, 2010

I've been having big problems trying to solve my problem. I've checked all the posts related, tried all the solutions and still I didn't get anything, so I'm sharing my problem and hope for someone to have the solution.

I installed Windows XP with BootCamp and it was working fine.
But then the HD space of the windows partition was too small and I needed more space. So what I did was erase the partition with the Disc Utility.

But before that I wanted to test the Parallels to see if the windows 7 would work fine with it. It installed easily but I didn't like the performance of it, so I just erased it with the AppCleaner. Then I erased the BootCamp partition with Disc Utility.

But when I tried to use the Boot Camp Assistant again, it only gave me the message: "The Disk Cannot Be Partitioned Because Some Files Cannot Be Moved"I've checked the forums and it was said that probably if I use iDefrag, it would solve my problem.Once I did it, I still got the same message.Then I decided to repair the dic, so I did the verification and clicked on Repair Disc Permitions and I've got this message:
-The file SUID "System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/" was modified and cannot be repaired.

Then I decided to reboot the whole system inserting the installation disc and pressing the C button, but all I get is a white screen and no response. And sometimes the Macbook not even start properly (also having only the white screen and no response), so I need to press the Option button till the Mac HD icon appears and I can access the computer.

And now I really without any option and I wanted to install the windows.

OS X ::Windows 7 Under Boot Camp - Using The Snow Leopard To Install Disc?

May 12, 2010

I got my new Macbook today. I've reformatted and installed Snow Leopard. Then I set up Boot Camp and installed Windows 7. I installed all the drivers under Windows 7 using the Snow Leopard install disc. One problem that remains is under Windows 7, I can't tap the trackpad to click. I have to use a mouse.Anyone know of a fix? Can't find it under Apple Support at all.

OS X :: Snow Leopard Installed From External Hard Drive Won't Boot?

Feb 16, 2010

I have no id� whats wrong, I want to install Snow Leopard(from the external) on my Core2duo Macbook pro, which is running Leopard at the moment.

I have a Snow Leopard image, and I have used Disc utility to partition the external hard drive (GUID), and I assume the partition and install went well on the external, because in Disc start the external appears as OSX 10.6.

Then the problem: The macbook wont boot from the newly made external it just gives me this sign (of course without the colours).

I have tried to start the macbook normal, and with the option key held down were the external pops up.

I have also tried to chose the external in disc start and reboot with no luck.

I have tried to start the Snow Leopard install(external) within Leopard where the install start fine, but when it reboots and wants to continue the install, the sign appears.

The external harddrive is a 5400rpm 40gb 2,5" which is only powered by the usb port maybe thats the problem?

OS X :: How To Use External DVD Drive With Boot Camp

Jan 11, 2009

Back on 10.5.5 and below, I was able to install Windows with Boot Camp and my External DVD Drive - My Internal SuperDrive is in the jelly and won't work. But on 10.5.6, Windows decided to give me licensing problems after I tried to use it with VMWare Fusion 2.0. So, in temper I deleted the partition in Boot Camp Assistant.

On the creation of a new, bigger partition for Windows 7 Public Beta, I found that I could no longer use my External DVD Drive to install Windows in Boot Camp.

So, now, Apple has pretty much forced me to come and get the SuperDrive fixed ($65 for a QUOTE, and Over $150 to get the thing fixed) if I want to install Windows onto my Mac.

Windows On Mac :: Can You Install Vista From An External HDD Via Boot Camp?

Jan 25, 2009

I've been reading up on ways to install Leopard from an external HDD image (.dmg), and I'm wondering if it is possible to do a similar function, but with Vista in boot camp. I'd like to backup both installers to an external HDD and make them mountable if the disks have a snafu.

Can you install Vista from an external HDD via Boot Camp? I imagine this would be an .iso or similar file type.

Windows On Mac :: Install Windows 7 And Can't Get The Boot Camp Assistant To Partition My Drive?

Dec 15, 2009

I'm trying to install Windows 7 and can't get the boot camp assistant to partition my drive. The drive in question is 500GB with over 200GB free space. I want a Windows partition of 35-40GB.On first attempt I kept getting the cannot move files error when trying to partition. I read up on the error online, and most people suggested issues with parallels or needing to use idefrag. I had parallels on my machine at one point, but am not sure if there are any problem folders still hiding somewhere. Any tips on that part?I ran idefrag overnight last night. When I booted the machine up this morning, I launched it again to verify that the disk was defraged. Boot camp still doesn't want to play.

OS X :: Cannot Boot Camp By Snow Leopard?

Nov 17, 2009

I set up windows xp on my imac using boot camp and then used the snow leopard disc to install drivers etc. I then tried to install a game (GTA IV) but setup.exe immediately crashed to desktop. I tried with another game (Fallout 3), same thing. Today I tried re-installing xp without installing the drivers etc from the snow leopard disc. This time, both games installed fine. But without the extras from the snow leopard disc, I can't play them.

Windows On Mac :: Boot Camp Without A CD Drive?

Dec 31, 2009

I have a Macbook Pro 17" (MacBookPro2,1 I believe) and it has a busted Superdrive that won't read or burn CDs and DVDs. However, I want to dual boot Windows 7—is this even possible?

I've already tried a bit of a long-winded solution. I used Parallels to install a virtual copy of Windows 7, then booted into that copy, used it and a Windows 7 ISO to make a bootable flash drive, installed rEFIt, and tried to boot from my flash drive. However, that doesn't seem to work as rEFIt just errors out and then prompts you to restart, saying that the firmware refuses to boot, and that support for booting legacy OSes from external drives is rather shaky.

Windows On Mac :: What Is The Best Way To Transfer Boot Camp To A New Drive

Aug 24, 2010

I have two 500GB data drives, one is split in half with Boot Camp getting 250GB.

The Boot Camp drive is starting to fail and needs to be replaced.

I ordered a 1TB drive and my plan is copy all data from the first drive on the 1TB, and then format the working 500GB and put Boot Camp onto it (this time filling the whole drive).

What is the best way to do this?

I'm thinking maybe - run Boot Camp Assistant, set up the partition, then clone the contents on the drive? Is this the best way?

What is the best software to use?

Windows On Mac :: How To Replace Boot Camp Drive

May 31, 2008

I plan on replacing my Boot Camp Drive (not partition, separate drive) in my Mac Pro (320GB with Vista 64, NTFS) with a 750 GB drive.

How do I do this? Do I put in the new drive and clone the Boot Camp partition using Disk Utility, and then take the 320gb out of it's slot and put in the 750gb, and Vista will boot fine? Is there anything special I need to do?

Or am I going to have to re-setup everything and reinstall windows?

Windows On Mac :: Boot Camp Keeps Creating An 'F' Drive In XP?

Aug 14, 2010

I have loaded XP with boot camp on about 20 IMAC's over the last 6 months at my work. Everything has gone fine until about 1 month ago. When finished instaaling the Mac drivers and when rebooted, in XP, boot camp creates not only the 'C' drive labelled "Boot Camp", but also creates and mounts permemently a 'F' drive on the Windows computer. The 'F' drive is no longer mapable on the XP. I can't have an 'F' drive because other softwatre on the XP need to map a 'F' drive.

Why is it creating an 'F' drive and how do I get it to stop, like the other 20 installs that went fine.

Some details, - yes the Windows partition is very large, usually 500gb

No, I keep it from connecting to the internet - some one said that might be the reason.

Windows On Mac :: 12.5GB Free Space - Boot Camp Drive

Dec 28, 2010

not luck finding an answer with search function or google. just covering my bases here. I'm running a Macbook Pro 13" with Windows 7 via Boot Camp. I made my partition 30GB when installing Windows, thinking it would be more than enough for what I needed, especially after reading this. Quote: I opted for 20GB, which left me with just a bit over 16GB to use after installing Windows 7. from: [URL:...] So I figured 30GB would mean I would have up to 26 GB of free space to play with after install. My problem is, I only have 12.5GB free space left over to play with and seemingly my Windows 7 installation is what, 17GB? I'm sort of thinking maybe for whatever reason there's a copy of my Windows 7 installation files somewhere on the partition that didn't get deleted, or all the expanded files used for installation are still sitting somewhere. Before I go ahead and delete the partition and reinstall Windows 7 again, I'd like to know if Windows7 is actually that bloody big and why on the guide I read it says it's only 4GB?

OS X :: Using Boot Camp To Install Windows On Second Hard Drive

Feb 4, 2010

I'm building a custom computer that I would like to run both OSX and Windows 7 on. At the moment I am trying to decide between installing 1 2TB hard drive or 2 1TB hard drives. I would preferably do the latter since I would like each OS to be on its own drive. OSX will be my primary OS. If I go for the 2 drive option they will be 2 seperate drives, not in a RAID config. Getting OSX onto the machine is simple enough for me if not a little roundabout. My main concern is Windows 7. Will bootcamp allow me to install Windows to it's own dedicated drive without having to partition the OSX drive? In my case would I even need to use bootcamp? Would holding down the "alt" key as done with bootcamp detect a second bootable disk even if Windows was not installed through bootcamp?

Windows On Mac :: Boot Camp Drive Showing Up As Fat - Can't Mount

Jul 29, 2010

I am trying to get my Macbook Pro (15" 2.53 GHz, 4GB) to play nicely with Windows 7. To get a valid copy of Windows I got in on the Ultimate Steal program last year. For those who don't know what it is, basically if you're a student you could get Win7 Pro Upgrade on the cheap. Before this I didn't have any copy of Windows on my laptop. I had to go through a huge pain in the ass process of installing XP 32-bit > Vista 32-bit > Vista 64-bit > and then upgrade that to Win7. I finally had a 75GB partition of Win7 64-bit installed, when booting up holding down Option I got to select either the Macintosh HD or Windows so everything's rosey.

I wanted to do some virtualization so I didn't have to reboot all the time so I grabbed an eval copy of VMWare Fusion. I kept getting an error about not being able to load the BootCamp partition, getting an error of Resource Busy. When I look at the partition in Disk Utililty the name of it is disk0s2 instead of BootCamp like it used to on my old Macbook. Trying to mount the mount fails and for some reason the partition shows as exFt. Going back into Windows show that it is in fact partitioned as NTFS.

Well not wanting to go through the same install hell that I did before I used Windows built-in functionality to create a system image as well as created a system restore disk. I blew away the bootcamp partition and launched Boot Camp Assistant, recreated the partition and stuck in the System Restore disk. Boot Camp Assistant restarted to install the OS and everything seemed to go well. I can no boot into Win7 and Mac but the partition on the Mac side still shows as disk0s2 and exFat. It *is* now mountable but it shows that the drive is completely empty (107 gb free, 1.8mb used). Another weird issue, the partition isn't 107gb, it's 80gb. And there is definitely more than 1.8mb used. Obviously VMWare still doesn't like this and I'm just stuck.

Software :: Install Windows XP On Leopard For Boot Camp?

Jan 30, 2010

I know this is my first post, but I had no where else to go on the internet.

My problem is, I was trying to install Windows XP on Leopard for boot camp. Something went wrong and now it gives a message saying "no bootable device".

Its almost like its confused to where its booting from. So now, it won't boot past the white screen with the apple logo - that doesn't even appear! Its a grey screen that goes to a black screen which reads that message. I can't get into OSX.

I think I may of partitioned the drive and whiped the computer clean, but being a casual computer person I have no idea what to do.

I have my original Mac OSX disc that came with the computer.

Windows On Mac :: Boot Camp 3.2 Update Uninstalls Boot Camp On 2006?

Nov 21, 2010

In retrospect, I should have ignored it when Apple Software Update told me about the Boot Camp 3.2 upgrade for my 2006 Mac Pro running x64 Win 7 ultimate. When I ran it, it overwrote my blue tooth driver and my keyboard stopped working. Thanks for the folks at Mac Rumors forums, I was able to go through the procedure to get it working again, and I also had to update the video driver (again) from ATI for my 3800.

So then I decide to reboot into MacOS and discover that my icon for selecting the boot disk was gone, not to mention any directory or programs in the start menu. This happen to anyone else? Do I have to downgrade to 3.1 or does anyone have a recommendation to get 3.2 working?

Windows On Mac :: Apple Drivers Not Working In Leopard / Boot Camp 2.0 On MBP

Nov 2, 2007

I got a Windows XP partition working on my MBP under Tiger and Boot Camp (Beta), but the Apple drivers for Keyboard, trackpad, IR and bluetooth did not work. The built-in keyboard and trackpad worked with default Windows drivers, but no Mac-specific key functionality (like brightness, volume, etc). I was hoping Boot Camp 2.0 in Leopard would have better drivers, but they still didn't work. I don't know if this is a MBP-specific problem or not.

IMac :: Strange I5 - Reinstall Snow Leopard - Utilize Boot Camp

Dec 16, 2009

I had a 2008 24 inch imac (3.06ghz C2D) and had some issues with it. First the hard drive failed, upon bringing it into the Apple store, they told me that they replaced the hard drive and screen (due to dust under it), however, this was not the case. What they had actually done is replace the entire unit and gave me a refurb which was previously registered to someone else (as evidenced by the registration info). A few months later, I had another issue, this time the logic board had failed and I once again had to lug this 20 pound beast through the largest mall in the city in order to get it to the Apple store (for the second time). I politely explained my discontent with this whole process, they did not inform me that the unit was a refurb and now it had failed yet again. Much to my surprise they offered me a replacement in the form of the i5 with a 1tb drive, 4 gigs of ram, the works. Now here is the problem: I was not given any of the included dvds as they do a "like-for-like" swap only. This is now an issue because I can not install Snow Leopard from the retail dvd, nor can I install Leopard from my previous iMac disks. In addition to this, I do not have the correct drivers for a boot camp install. Thus I am stuck if I ever need to reinstall Snow Leopard or if I need to utilize boot camp (which I do).

Windows On Mac :: OSX Not Showing Boot Camp Hard Drive / Installed The Broadcom Driver

Oct 14, 2010

Running a 2010 MBP Core i5 2.4GHz. I had Windows 7 originally installed. Gave me wireless problems and I gave up. Erased the partition. Installed Windows XP and everything was fine.

I got a new copy of W7 Professional x64. I installed it "over" the existing XP, though it erased the partition anyways (I don't care about that).The new 7 install has been giving me the same wireless problems. I downloaded and installed the Broadcom driver. Gave me a BSOD and restarted the computer. Now I have a BSOD on start up, too. On the OSX side of things, it no longer shows any Boot Camp hard drive. It doesn't recognize it at all. Though when I hold the option key on boot, it still shows the Windows install.

1. How do I fix the BSOD problem? (All caused by installing the driver)

2. Where the heck is the Boot Camp hard drive/partition?
