Windows On Mac :: Video Game Controller - Use With Bootcamp

Jun 3, 2009

Can someone recommend me a good controller to use in bootcamp that is known to 100% work w/ bootcamp and all recent games? Looking to spend $20-$30, but I'll spend more if it insures quality. I have a fairly old logitech dual action controller and apparently it is no longer compatible with any new games.

Windows On Mac :: Looking For Compatible Bootcamp Mic Drivers For XP?

Sep 14, 2009

I have a mid-2009 13" MBP and just installed XP with SP3. I'm trying to get my Apple In-Ear headphones to work in Windows - the sound comes out fine but the microphone does not appear to record properly. It records, but on playback it sounds like a voice talking realy slowly.

The headphones and mic both work under OS X, so is it a Windows driver problem? Has anyone got their Apple In-Ears' microphone to work under any version of Windows?

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?

OS X :: Bootcamp Windows XP Installation Error?

Sep 30, 2010

I am having trouble loading window XP pro OEM sp2 using Bootcamp on my macbook OSX 10.5.8 It gets through copying all the files and reboots successfully through to the install window and the setup program for windows (where it displays various marketing info and has dot buttons down the left hand side). It says it will take 39 mins to setup but the counter never changes and I have left it up to an hour and nothing happens although once I did get a disk error message (something about cleaning the CD - can't remember exactly). I am doing full installs and have tried FAT and NTFS. At first I thought it was because it was an OEM but it is a Microsoft OEM and other people online seem to have no problems and do not seem to get as far in the install if it is that. Is this a dud CD or version of windows or am I just doing something wrong?

Windows On Mac :: How To Interrupt Bootcamp Installation Because Of An Error?

May 2, 2009

I have started a bootcamp installation on new (updated) mbp. During the install, windows-installation makes a critical error and says that the installation cannot continue.

I managed to eject the disk by holding down the mouse button, but my problem is that the mbp starts up in the corrupted windows installation and stops again. I'm in an endless rutine where I cannot boot in Leopard again.

I'v tried to give it the Leopard installation disk but it's beeing ejected. How do I get pass bootcamp and into OS X again.

Windows On Mac :: BootCamp And Blue Error Screen

May 13, 2009

I have a new IMac and I installed vista via bootcamp, when I start up vista I am getting a blue error screen that flashes so fast i cant even ready it... then the computer shuts down. When I restart it again it goes to the page that gives me the choice to safe start or start normal. Sometimes it will let me go to windows and work fine but there have been times when it just does that over and over again. Does anyone know what this is caused from? I guess I'll have to reformat or something. If I continue to use my computer this way will it wreck something?

OS X :: BootCamp NTFS Error - Cannot Install Windows

Jun 27, 2009

I'm trying to bootcamp Vista onto my mac so that I can play Diablo 2 since it won't run on my macbook white (2.4GHz). Anyway, I have a legit CD for Vista that I used to install it however when I was selecting the partition to use I got the message that "Windows cannot be installed on this partition as it is not NTFS" or something in that general wording. So, is there any way to create a bootcamp partition as NTFS or is it possible to run Vista on a non NTFS partition.

Windows On Mac :: BootCamp - No Bootable Device Error

Oct 19, 2009

I first installed Windows XP when I got my early 2008 Mac Pro. Boot Camp was probably beta back then, but I cant say my experience has changed much through Vista 32 bit or now Windows 7 64 bit. The way to dual boot, holding ALt during boot, has worked 1/10 times. Literally. The boot symbols are usually delayed, so I know when I choose the win partition, it gives me the "No bootable device" error. Two times have I had heavy OS X crashes after these boot-up "games". This last time I had to completely reinstall OS X (or upgrade to SL). How could this be, im not even booting into OS X when I am trying to boot into win.

I even have a separate hard drive for my Win partition. Not to mention the stream of driver issues you encounter when you finally manage to get inside Windows. I actually had my apple wireless and mouse working in Windows 7, but then I installed Boot Camp drivers of the DVD, and now theyre dead. I know. Its Windows, why would I miss it? Gaming or apps, regardless. Apple shouldnt include a program that functions so poorly, if they insist on higher standards elsewhere. It only reflects badly upon them. I consider myself a decent level mac user, venturing into command line troubleshooting if needed. But BootCamp remains a mystery to me.

Windows On Mac :: Cannot Install BootCamp - Error Message

Aug 21, 2010

I have a Macbook (from 2007) running Tiger OS X 10.4.11. I am trying to install BootCamp onto the computer, but Tiger did not come with Boot Camp installed. Because of this I had to download Boot Camp 1.3 Beta. This is old, and has expired, but I changed the system date to be 2006 and this has made it work. When I am partitioning the disk, this message comes up: Back up the disk and use Disk Utility to format it as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume. Restore your information to the disk and try using Boot Camp Assistant again. I have already Backed Up and the computer is already formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled), but this message still comes up. Disk Utility has Greyed out the Erase section for Macintosh HD so I cant re-format it.

Laptops :: Macbook Pro Windows Bootcamp Installation Error

Oct 29, 2009

I have recently downloaded a copy of Windows 7 on my macbook pro in attempt to bootcamp it so i can play more games. everything went well until it booted to windows installation. from there i clicked start installation and it gave me two choices either to Update it or Customise it. I first chose Update but it didnt work. I then tried customise, and found out that my partition wasnt in NTSC(or whatever) format. So i stop my attempt to install it and tried to go back to mac. I could not go back to mac. i dont know how. I'm stuck there with the installation disc in the drive. I cant go forward with the installation and i cant go back. I finally figured how to get the disc out, and i thought that if i install the Mac OS X again it would fix things so i insert a Leopard installation disc. I was Completly wrong, and now i am stuck at a black screen telling me to insert an installation disc with the Leopard disc in side. I cant do anything now .
I need help please, any valid solution will be appriciated.
THanks in advance

Windows On Mac :: Bootcamp Partition Error - Files Cannot Be Moved

Apr 5, 2006

When partitioning so that I can install XP, bootcamp claims that specific files cannot be moved, making it so that I am unable to install XP. It then orders me to ~gasp~ back my files, and reinstall OSX. Anyone else have this error message? I wanted a 14GB partition, and that would leave about 16 additional gigs free on the OSX partition

Windows On Mac :: Cannot Make BootCamp Partition - Error Message

Jan 15, 2008

To make a long story short, I cannot get past the stage in the Boot Camp install process where you make a partition on the hard drive for Windows. I get this error message: The disk cannot be partitioned because some files cannot be moved. Back up the disk and use Disk Utility to format it as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume. Restore your information to the disk and try using Boot Camp Assistant again. I do not have a removable hard drive to back up my data on. I've got two flash drives that I put my most important documents on but that's it. I can use my IPod Nano to store my ITunes library until this gets figured out.

The only data I would really lose would be my firefox information, though I did get the book mark history, my video game saved data (4 games), and programs like Word 04, Flip4Mac, and other miscellaneous gadgets. I have already shelled out $80 for the Leopard upgrade and $120 for XP. I have no other need for a removable hard drive and as such I will not buy one. I just got off the phone with Apple Tech Support, one hour of it, and after trying repairing disk permissions and other Disk Utility functions we got nowhere. I tried booting from the Leopard disk and doing the same Disk utility repair/repair permissions to no avail.

Varying the size of the partition had no effect. I tried wiping the free space on my hard drive via Disk Utilities and that did nothing. I have plenty of room on my hard drive, it's 120GB and I have a shade over 60GB remaining. The information on "Mac HD" is as follows:
Mount Point :/Capacity :111.5 GB (119,690,149,888 Bytes)
Format :Mac OS Extended (Journaled)Available :62.4 GB (67,002,867,712 Bytes)
Owners Enabled :YesUsed :49.1 GB (52,687,282,176 Bytes)
Number of Folders :135,138Number of Files :623,284

During the rebook with the Leopard CD, there were apparently some disk permission errors. During the repair permissions process it appeared they could not be repaired but were modified or something to that effect. I just ran another -verify disk-verify disk permissions-repair disk permissions and these errors did not show up. A subsequent attempt at partitioning failed. I was directed to call tech support tomorrow AM and am supposed to ask for someone in 'Tier 2', but I'm hoping someone has some ideas that do not including wiping my entire hard drive and starting from scratch. Particularly since I don't know if that will actually work

Mac :: Windows XP BootCamp - Four Additional Megabytes Required Error

Mar 7, 2009

I have the Windows XP SP1 disk that came with my old computer. I know that OEM disks don't work, but i successfully install Windows onto bootcamp every time i try, and it works perfectly. The only thing is, I can't install the bootcamp drivers which let me access wifi because i don't have sp2. I can't slipstream, because the disk has updates integrated inside of it, and whenever I try to install SP2 from the sp2 install file i dl'd from the microsoft site, it always gives me a "4 additional megabytes required" error. I added 5 gigabytes. and it still has this error.

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.

Windows On Mac :: BootCamp Partition Disk Process Stuck With Error

Apr 22, 2009

I have an alu iMac with a 500GB HDD. There is about 200GB free. Every time I run the Bootcamp Assistant, choose a Windows partition (doesn't matter what size), it sits with the progress bar spinning for ages before it gives me the error "Disk could not be partitioned as some files cannot be moved. Please reformat the disk and try again". There is no way I can back the disk up, reformat, reinstall and re-update everything. No other apps are running when I run the Bootcamp Assistant.

Windows On Mac :: BootCamp Assistant Error After Upgrading Hard Drive

Jun 19, 2009

I have a 13" white macbook, which I had partitioned with Bootcamp. When I decided to upgrade to a 500 GB drive I didn't want to reinstall everything, so after ordering and installing my new harddrive, I used super duper to clone my mac volume onto the new drive. [URL]. It worked like a charm for the mac volume, but did not copy my windows volume. No problem, I figure, I will just run the boot camp assistant again, b/c I didn't have that much on that volume anyway. However when I booted up in my new 500 gb mac drive, the Boot Camp Assistant would not work and generated an error message stating. "The startup disk cannot be partitioned or restored to a single partition. Back up the disk and use Disk Utility to format it as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume. Restore your information to the disk and try using Boot Camp Assistant again."

Only problem is, my drive was already formatted as an extended journaled volume. I erased it and reformatted and recloned from super duper just to double check, but still got the same error message. Then I tried to start from scratch, and erased the drive again and tried to install an operating system from the dvd. I got another error message saying that the hard drive could not be partitioned and that I needed to use disk utility to reformat the disk as a GUID partition. However I couldn't figure out how to do that, and couldn't find anything on the disk utility that said GUID. it took a call to mac support (thanks mark!) to figure it out. Thought I would post it here in case anyone else has the same problem. It turned out that the hard drive I'd ordered was somehow not set up the way as my old one.

The solution was:
1. boot from the mac os DVD
2. go into disk utility, select the new hard drive, and choose the partition tab
3. change the number of partitions from "current" to "1"
4. then the 'options' button becomes available, and you can go in and select to format as a GUID drive.
from that point on, I was able to proceed with installing Mac OS x, install all the software updates, and run the boot camp partition.

Once I had the hard drive partitioned properly I used Super Duper to clone my mac volume onto the new drive, and then used Winclone to clone the windows drive. for some reason the main site for winclone is down right now - two canoes - but I got a working copy here: [URL] none of the help info on two canoes was available yesterday or today either so I had a little trouble figuring out how to use it. (though others have said it's super easy...). I wasn't sure where to save the disk image, on a mac or windows volume and on my old or new drive. The way I ended up doing it (that worked) was:
1. open winclone, and in the 'image' tab, create an image and save it on the mac volume of the new hard drive. (I couldn't save it on the old drive b/c there wasn't enough room)
2. then, still in winclone, go to the 'restore' screen and restore from the mac volume of the internal hard drive to the windows volume.

Windows On Mac :: Fatal Error When Installing Drives With Bootcamp CD / Blue Screen With White Letter

Jan 3, 2011

I keep getting the following error 3 quarters of the way:

STOP: C000021A "Fatal system error. The windows subsystem process terminated un expectedly w/ a status of OX C000005. System shut down. It's a blue screen with white letter.

I'm using Office XP Service Pack 2 with imac OSX Install DVD version 10.6.3.

The steps I'm taking are:

Log onto my mac and use pre installed bootcamp to partition the drive. I'm using 32GB of space. Then I use my xp Prof w/ service pack 2 cd to install xp. At this time everything is working fine except for the missing drives. Then I put the bootcamp cd that came with my imac into the iMac and run bootcamp. It looks like everything is working perfectly. The imac is finding wireless internet and all the drives look like they are working fine until out of no where a blue screen pops up and states what I wrote below. There is nothing else on the screen. I'm using a 27 inch imac that i bought about 5 weeks ago new.

Would Parallels provide me with a better user experience by installing Windows directly via Parallels OR by having Parallels utilizing a Boot Camp Partition? Which is better and why? Also, how much memory should I allocate to Parallels/Windows XP?
