Windows On Mac :: Installing 7 RC Over 7 Beta In Snow Leopard?

Sep 2, 2009

I currently have the Win 7 Beta installed on a dedicated internal hard drive (in my Mac Pro). I originally installed it using Bootcamp, then later bought VMware Fusion 2.0 so I could hot swap between OS X and Win 7. Fusion detected my original Bootcamp installation; I didn't do any reinstallation of the Beta.

I upgraded to Snow Leopard last week.

I'd like to install the Release Candidate. I realize it requires a clean install (I don't want to mess with using the terminal workaround I've heard about for installing over the Beta). What's the best way to do this? Should I simply run the Snow Leopard version of Bootcamp and have it do a new install? Do I have to wipe and reformat the Win drive, or will Bootcamp take me through that automatically.

OS X :: Installing Snow Leopard/Windows 7 On Mac With Bootcamp

Oct 30, 2009

I have a unibody 13" MacBook running Leopard with Bootcamp running Windows Vista. I want to try and make the move this weekend to both Snow Leopard AND Windows 7.

First, what is my best plan of attack here? Will Snow Leopard install just fine and ignore my current 25gb partition of Vista currently set up? (i.e. not effect it at all). I would assume so but I'm not totally sure.

Second, what is the best way to go about installing Windows 7? I am a university student and I will be getting the $30 upgrade version of Windows 7. I've heard that doing a clean install is the best way to go instead of going over vista, so I hear I need to make an iso out of the upgrade version and use that?

I'm planning on doing Snow Leopard first, then Windows 7 second as this seems like the most logical order for me.

Windows On Mac :: Installing With Snow Leopard Bootcamp

Oct 16, 2009

I can install snow leopard clean on a fresh drive on my MBP with my upgrade disk. It is the disk that came as a drop-in dvd with the MBP, along with its original install disks. If I install windows using bootcamp assistant, do I use that disk when it asks for the drivers, etc. during installation? Or do I use my leopard install disks that came with my computer? Is the snow leopard bootcamp process any different from the process in leopard? I had windows Vista on there fine before upgrading my hard drive and going to snow leopard. Do I need to print out those 25 pages again?

OS X :: Will Installing Snow Leopard Screw Bootcamp?

Aug 29, 2009

I have a copy of Snow Leopard on the way and am wondering what I will have to do? Does you need to back up everything, or does it "dynamically" install? Either way, will I need to do anything to keep my bootcamp partition working?

On another note, I currently have Vista Ultimate in bootcamp and want to change to Windows 7. Is there a way to "upgrade"? Or will I have to clean install and rebootcamp?

Windows On Mac :: Win7 Beta Installed To BootCamp Via VMware

Feb 9, 2009

This will outline a simple and easy method to install the windows 7 build 7000 to a boot camp partition, using only vmware fusion 2. This is novel because it can be accomplished without a superdrive and without burning a dvd.

1. Use boot camp assistant to make a windows partition.
2. Mount the windows .iso file in fusion and set the bios (F2 during virtual machine boot) to boot from the virtual dvd-drive.
3. Run the windows install
4. When windows wants to restart the first time, shutdown the virtual machine.
5. Reboot the mac and boot the windows partition, boot camp style.

OS X :: BootCamp Beta - Making Windows Partition Larger

Mar 2, 2009

Before leopard was released I installed windows on my mbp using the BootCamp Assistant. I have since reformatted the computer and while the windows partition remains, bootcamp assistant is gone. A few questions:

1. Is there any way I can make the windows partition larger? I want to install a few new games on it
2. If not, how can I delete the windows partition straight up?
3. Once the windows partition is deleted, how can I reinstall windows without upgrading to leopard? Is there any where I can get boot camp assitant still? I still have a burned CD with the Windows Drivers along with my copy of XP w/ SP2.

Windows On Mac :: Bootcamp Without Snow Leopard CD?

Apr 7, 2010

just started using Mac OS recently

AFAIK, I will be needing the snowleopard installation cd for the drivers in windows after I finish installing windows(xp). However, I bought this MBP from ebay so it came with leopard cd only but with snowleopard installed on the macchine.

So I am wondering if leopard cd works as well to obtain drivers for the windows?

Windows On Mac :: Installing Snow Leopard Upgrade To Parallels 5

Dec 28, 2009

I have a MacBook, 2Gig memory, 2.18 mhz, running leopard. My best Bible software has to be windows (Logos) Mac version is no where near its potential here, everything PC has crashed in last 8 months. I pulled out o;d Parallels 3 and a whole bunch of old software, getting ready to get to migrate to Win 7.

I have ordered Snow Leopard.
I have ordered Parallels for Mac ver 4 (OLD VER ?)
Getting free upgrade to Parallels 5
Will probably get an OEM version of Win 7 Ultimate.

1- Can I just install the upgrade to parallels 5
2- if I have to install parallels 4, all I have is XP.
3- My Logos Bible software will 'Sing' on Win 7 need to get there
4- Do not want to reinstall XP as Win 7 has to gut it.

I would rather just not do any of this and wait for my first SS check! But I have to and do not know what to do first. It would seem Snow Leopard but I do not want to do Parallels 4 then parallels 5 if I do not have to. I am canning all my PC stuff and love the intuitiveness of all Apple stuff including software.

Windows On Mac :: XP Compatible With OS X Snow Leopard BootCamp?

Jan 13, 2010

I'm by no means very tech savvy. When I tried to install Windows XP (Home Edition) on my Macbook Pro via bootcamp, I experienced a bit of trouble. I partitioned the hard drive as instructed, then inserted the Windows XP installation disk and hit continue. This is when the computer more or less took over and started doing it's own thing. After a while the screen went blue and the windows install prompts were flashing across the screen. At this point I'm still thinking all is good; I accepted the terms of use etc.

However, once the install was complete, it kept asking me to insert the Windows XP Home edition CD. Even though it was already in the disk drive. I tried to hit continue but it kept taking me back to the screen asking for the disk to be inserted. Eventually I quit out of the install (upon doing so the screen prompted me the install did not work), ejected the windows install cd, and restarted my computer back into osx. Is the newest version of osx, snow leopard, not compatible with microsoft xp? Do I need to purchase vista or windows 7 if I am to run boot camp successfully?

Windows On Mac :: Snow Leopard Bootcamp Drivers Needed?

Nov 5, 2009

I have a new 21.5 Imac (with the ATI Radeon HD 4670) on which I have just installed Windows 7 32 bit version. Everything worked great and upon starting Windows 7 for the first time my network is working, the ATI 4670 drivers seem to be installed automatically and also sound drivers seem to be there, everything of this Windows 7 did automatically. So my question is: why do I need the Bootcamp drivers from the Snow Leopard disk, what extra value will they provide? Can it hurt my computer all togehter if I skip the drivers from the Snow Leopard disk? will it perhaps have drivers other than above that are absolutely needed for the system to function properly?

Windows On Mac :: Won't Change Bootcamp Partition Icon Since Snow Leopard Install

Aug 29, 2009

After installing Snow Leopard, the volume icon for my Windows XP Bootcamp partition has changed back to the default Hard Disk icon. As it is formatted NTFS, I am unable to change the icon within OS X. I used to change it by applying the desired icon to a memory stick, then within Windows, copy the hidden icon files from the memory stick on the base directory of the 'C:' Drive.

When in Leopard, it would recognise the icon that I had applied to it - but ever since I installed Snow Leopard, this trick no longer works and I cannot find a way to change it (other than to change my Bootcamp partition to FAT32, so I can apply an Icon within OS X - but this means reformatting and is slightly OTT for just an icon ) This occurs both after doing a Upgrade install on my MacBook Pro, and a clean install on my iMac, both with already existing Bootcamp partitions. I might try by making a new Bootcamp partition now Snow Leopard is installed, but I don't see how that would be any different to the ones I currently have.

Windows On Mac :: Can I Partition My Mac Drive After Installing Windows Through Bootcamp

Nov 10, 2009

perhaps I am doing something wrong? I wanted to install Windows XP on my iMac. I previously had partitioned my Mac drives. I backed everything on these drives to my external and blew the partitions away creating my one Mac drive again.

I then ran Bootcamp, created a partition and installed XP. Everything was fine. I then partitioned my main drive and got the warning message about Bootcamp maybe not working afterwards. So I finished partitioning my Mac drive as I wanted and now I don't have the option of booting into XP through Bootcamp. When I try it just shows the Mac drive as my only boot option. I see the XP Bootcamp drive in the System Preferences startup disk area, but I assume I did something to the partition once I partitioned my Mac drives

OS X :: Apple Tweaks Dock Menus In New Snow Leopard Beta?

Jul 10, 2009

Apple on Thursday evening delivered to developers a new build of its forthcoming Snow Leopard operating system that addresses a number of outstanding bugs but also delivers a couple of interface tweaks.

"This Snow Leopard Developer Preview Update is recommended for all users running the Snow Leopard Developer Preview Build 10A394 or later," Apple said. "This update includes general operating system fixes for stability, compatibility, and security."

The new build, labeled 10A402a, weighs in at roughly 1.3GB and was distributed via Snow Leopard's Software Update mechanism. It's the second such build to arrive in that manner in as many weeks, signaling ongoing tests to the new version of the system's automatic software updater.

In their brief experiences testing the new build, people familiar with the software claim it to be more responsive overall, as Apple focuses on optimization and stability ahead of a release planned for this fall.

Additionally, developers have noticed a couple of obvious interface tweaks, the first of which has seen the Dock's contextual pop-up menus re-skinned in a charcoal motif with white text. In previous builds, these menus were know to sport the same interface as traditional Finder contextual menus, which include black text on a platinum backdrop.

Apple may also be fiddling with the design of other Mac OS X interface elements, such as slide knobs, which now appear to feature a deeper, more vibrant shade of blue.

At its annual developers conference last month, Apple said it plans to release Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard in September as a $29 upgrade for all owners of Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.
