Windows On Mac :: Windows Vista Parallels/finding Network Drivers?

Apr 22, 2009

I recently installed Windows vista using going through parallels because my bootcamp failed a while ago. This partition also acts as my bootcamp. Well The internet on parallels works fine because it is using osx network, but when i boot into bootcamp the network drivers seem to be missing. I cant figure it out, but it says the ethernet and network drivers are not there. I cant find the drivers on the internet anywhere and when i use the vista disk i have it still does not want to install them.

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 :: Won't Work With Parallels / Windows Vista 64-bit Boot Camp

Apr 10, 2009

I was able to get Windows Vista 64 running on my 17" MBP, it is pretty slick. I set aside 32 GB for Windows, ran the install, loaded all the appropriate Boot Camp drivers and everything is working perfectly in Windows. I boot back to OS X to attempt to configure Parallels...

So I fired up Parallels and follow the guided instructions. However, when I get to step 2 Im not sure what I should be doing. I already have Windows on its own partition, but Parallels is asking me for a CD/DVD image. Im a little leery of putting the Win disc back in, I dont want Parallels to always want to boot from the disc. how do I tell Parallels to load Windows as a Virtual Machine off of the Boot Camp partition?

The partition Boot Camp created now appears on my Desktop in OS X as Untitled, I can not, for the life of me, figure out how to change that. If I eject that volume will I still be able to Boot to Windows? Will Parallel still work?

Windows On Mac :: Setting Up Parallels On Windows Network?

Sep 4, 2009

I've just ordered a Mac for work, which I'll be adding to a PC-based network all running under Windows Small Business Server. I know I can add the Mac ok, but I just wondered what will happen when I then add Parallels. If the Mac is properly set up and attached to a domain, will the "Virtual Windows" machine by definition be part of the same network and work ok, or is it better to think of the virtual machine as a completely new entity in the network?

Perhaps it'll all become blindingly obvious when I start, but I just wondered if there was anything I need to know so I go into this with my admittedly non-techie eyes open!

Windows On Mac :: Why Is There Vista Loading Bar When Start 7 On Parallels

Feb 13, 2010

I just ran my bootcamp partition for the first time on my newly installed Parallels. But when I ran it for the second time, the Win 7 loading icon no longer popped up. Instead, the Vista loading bars appeared and now appear each time I run Parallels, though Win 7 desktop will load up after the Vista loading bar.

Why is that?

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 :: 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 :: 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 sharing....no 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 ?

Windows On Mac :: Finding Bootcamp Windows 7 Drivers?

Oct 29, 2010

We'll after a mamouth effort today which had me thinking that I'd bricked my Mac, I've finally got Windows 7 installing throught using refit, bootcamp didn't want to work with my external dvd drive.

Where do I get the native bootcamp drivers to ensure my mac works properly in Windows mode? Are they on the Snow Leopard disk ? I recall in the past in the past that bootcamp used to make the drivers for you and burn them onto a CD but wasn't able to get past the partition stage, so don't know what the process is?

The graphics driver is the most important, I'm using one of the intel core duo original imacs, so I think its ATI.

Also any ideas where I can obtain a osx tool for managing partitions, I was showing about 5 partitions on the windows install, so would like to clean things up a little?

Windows On Mac :: AutoCad 2010 Not Load On Vista Through Parallels

Dec 17, 2009

So I downloaded parallels 4 and set up a virtual machine with Vista (I couldn't get a copy of XP so I had to settle). I then installed an educational version of AutoCAD 2010, it installs and everything but when I open the program it begins loading until a point where it doesn't respond. I have reinstalled it, uninstalled it and installed it again, but the same exact thing happens each time.

When AutoCAD stops responding it says this at the bottom of the screen:
Opening: C:UsersAdministratorAppDataLocalAutodeskAutoCAD 2010R18.0enuTemplateacad.dwt
I don't know whether that is relevant or not. I read somewhere that to run AutoCAD 2010 on vista you need 2GB of memory. With parallels the way it is i can only commit 1GB of memory to vista. I was wondering if it would work on bootcamp where i can devote all my memory to windows. Is it even possible to uninstall parallels and all that and switch to bootcamp? If thats even possible would I be able to preserve my copy of vista or would I have to get a new license?

OS X :: Using Windows Vista In Bootcamp, Parallels With Time Machine

Apr 20, 2010

I want to make sure I'm doing this properly. I recently acquired a Macbook Pro, along with legit copy of Win Vista. So here's what I did:1. Reinstall Mac OS X from scratch, then get ALL the software updates. Perfectly clean! Then installed the additional applications from the 2nd disk (Q1: Is that second disk what is called Leopard?)2. Backed up my Mac with Time Machine to my external Seagate drive.3. Used Bootcamp to create a partition, then install Windows Vista Home Basic edition on to it, then installed the Macbook Pro drivers, then got ALL the microsoft updates (which took forever).

Windows On Mac :: Finding 8,1 Drivers - How To Install Drivers

Sep 17, 2010

I've installed a legit copy of Windows XP, SP2. Nothing works, not my webcam, not my internet, not even the full resolution. The first time around that I did this, I had the DVD that came with my iMac, I installed the Windows drivers stuff off of it, and everything worked perfectly.

Can anyone point me in the direction of either a replacement for that DVD (.iso image or something?) or simply the required drivers that will let my iMac 8,1 connect to the web?

OS X :: Better To Network With Mac - Windows Vista Or XP?

Nov 6, 2010

I just bought a Macbook Air, my first Mac! After a couple days figuring out how to navigate I am starting to get the hang of it. I want to network with my old Laptop PC to be able to see some files that I plan on keeping there. My question is this: Is it easier to set up a home network with Vista or XP?

I have Vista on my PC right now(and I've tried a few online guides to view my files but I can't get it to work) but I also have a copy of XP. I was thinking of wiping my hard drive on the PC and installing XP instead.

Windows On Mac :: Network Lost In Vista After Afk?

Feb 28, 2009

I have a 2.8GHz alu iMac running vista 32-bit through the latest version of bootcamp. All the latest drivers updates etc. are installed.

Today I was downloading a torrent using ╬╝Torrent. After I started it I left the computer running, my connection was fine at that point, as it usually is. When I came back (it didn't go to sleep), around 250mb had downloaded but it had since stopped. I saw that I didn't have a connection. I tried searching for networks, but the computer couldn't find any, which is strange since it normally finds around 6-7 networks, including my own. I ran network diagnostics, which told me there might be problem with the computers network adaptor or something, and that I had to connect it and then try again. I had no idea what that means, so I logged off and on to see if that solved the problem, it didn't. I restarted to OSX and my network was fine again. When I restarted again in vista it was still fine, so the problem was gone. I would like to know what exactly went wrong though, and whether it had to do with the torrent or not. I've left the mac running on vista while I was away before, and this has never happened.

OS X :: Using Printer On Windows XP Network (Drivers For MacBook)

Mar 1, 2009

I just set up my printer on my home network, and it works with my two wireless PC's, and now I am trying to add it to my 3 macbooks, but I am having some trouble. I connected to it through system pref > print/fax > selected my printer. It connected and works sweet, but, the driver must be wrong. I was not sure what the driver was so I just chose GenericPostScript but when I print, a blank sheet comes out, no text. The PC's print just fine, but not my MacBook. It is a DELL printer connected to my dell PC, so I am not sure what driver to use. All I know is it is a Dell AIO 926.

Windows On Mac :: Finding The New Trackpad Drivers For Xp

Sep 21, 2009

I find the new trackpad drivers to be pretty horrible. It's so sensitive that it picks up all the minor movements.

It gets really frustrating because whenever I use my thumb to press down the trackpad, the trackpad picks up all those mini movements causing the cursor to shift a little everytime I press down the trackpad. This makes double clicking pretty hard.
