MacBook Pro :: Cannot Update Bootcamp 3.0 To 3.1 In Win7

Jun 10, 2010

I'm having trouble updating from bootcamp 3.0 to 3.1 in windows 7 PRO 32-bit. Both windows OS and MAC OS X are fully updated. I've tried running the apple software update program and I don't get any error messages, it tells me to restart and after the restart Bootcamp is still 3.0. I've tried downloading the file and running the file. But when I go to run the file nothing happens! I've tried to re-download the file again but still no luck.

MacBook Pro :: Win7 Start Bar Disappearing In BootCamp

Dec 9, 2009

I've read around saying most cases you need to update Video Drivers. Since I'm on a Mac with Windows 7 in bootcamp it's not that simple, I think? Should I just put in Mac cd to install drivers again or any method to fix a disappearing Windows 7 start bar in bootcamp? It happens every time I boot into Windows now.

MacBook Pro :: Partitioning HDD With BootCamp - Installing Win7

Feb 24, 2010

Today I decided install Win7 on my MBP and while partitioning the HDD using bootcamp I encountered the following error. Consequently, I used the Disk Utility in order to partition the drive. However it too failed (even for smaller sizes). How do I go about partitioning the hard drive? Erase everything and restore from backup?

MacBook Pro :: 330m BootCamp Overclock In Win7

Apr 23, 2010

I know a couple guys in the MBP refresh gaming thread were able to overclock using Nvidia Tools. I'm not having any luck; the sliders are grayed out and I can't make any changes with system tools 6.06. I've also got errors when trying to install Nvidia drivers other than the ones included with Bootcamp. What driver/system tools version are you using to OC? And what settings have you tried? (I'm on Windows 7 64bit).

MacBook Pro :: Installing Win7 With Bootcamp And Optibay

Apr 26, 2010

I've got an SSD in the HDD space, and a newmodeus HDD bay in the optical drive (same thing as the optibay). So what I was thinking was to install windows in a partition on the 500gb HDD. My SSD is only 80GB so I wanted to save space on that. Here is what I have tried:
Macbook set up with SDD and HDD, no optical drive.
Bootcamp will not let me install windows using an ISO image, needs a CD to install.

So I put my HDD in the HDD bay and put the optical drive back in. I then started up the macbook using a firewire drive (HDD has no OS on it, only the SDD does). Bootcamp then tells me it can't partition an external disk and I have to boot up using an internal disk (even though I WANT to partition the internal disk... bootcamp wouldnt let me get to that option running off a firewire drive). It seems like the only thing left is to just install windows on an SSD partition.

Jun 17, 2010

I want to run Windows 7 somehow on my new 2009 Macbook (2.4ghz, 2gb ram, 250 gb HDD). Now, is it better to have a separate partition through bootcamp or run it through a virtual machine (Vmware Fusion or something).

MacBook Air :: Win7 Bootcamp Turn Off Auto Defragmentation

Oct 31, 2010

Noticed with a Win7 bootcamp install the SSD is not detected and scheduled disk defragmentation would best be turned off manually. You may also want to turn off hibernation to save from 2-4GB of disc space. A full install of Win7 takes about 10GB and runs excellent.

OS X :: Installing Win7 In BootCamp

Aug 27, 2009

I installed snow leopard, the GM version, and after getting nice and settled I wanted to install windows 7, in bootcamp. So I create the partition, and then thats the end of it. None of the start up buttons will work, I tried holding down the X button while the mac starts up, but nothing will happen. The apple logo doesn't show up either. Right now, I booted off of ubuntu, and I'm on firefox. It seems the buttons don't work and I don't know why. Also, when I put in the windows 7 dvd, it just read:

Choose cd-rom to boot up from: or something like that.

Windows On Mac :: Win7 On Bootcamp Not Seeing USB HD

Jul 20, 2010

I just installed Windows 7 on my bootcamp partition. I have a macbook pro intel. Everything is loading fine, i ran the windows 7 update and all things are up to date. I now need to load my bootcamp drivers. I restored my Snow Leopard image file onto a portable HD. Double checked in osx and everything loaded fine.

Now, my problem is.. from Windows 7, when I plug in my usb hd, it does not load. Is there a reason why windows does not recognize the usb hd as a bootable install disc? When I am back in OSX and plug in the drive, it loads just fine. Anyone know if there is something I can do to get windows to boot the usb drive? The last resort I want to do is burn the image file to dvd.

5.1.2 Won't Load Any Page Win7 Bootcamp

I can't get Safari to load any pages whatsoever on my bootcamp partition running Windows 7. Firefox and IE9 work fine. I've uninstalled Safari and downloaded a fresh copy and still nothing. I can open Safari and change settings etc but no page will load. I've disabled both Windows Firewall and Avast shields and still nothing. I don't understand why other browsers will work but Safari won't.

Mac Pro :: MacPro & Bootcamp Win7 Performance Result

Nov 7, 2010

Macpro 8 Core 2.4Ghz with 12Gig RAM and top ATI card. Running Windows 7 through Bootcamp (much better than Parallels 6!). Ran the Performance Benchmark and returned a score of 7.6, except for HD which was 5.3. Apparently the top score for current hardware is 7.9, so I am wondering if others have run the test, and whether this is hardware or driver related etc, and what other people are getting.....

Windows On Mac :: Sysprep Win7 With BootCamp Drivers

Nov 22, 2010

I haven't actually done this. I just want feedback. We have a 'universal' ghost image of Windows 7 at work that we've created that works with all our computers (has all the drivers for computers we support). I'm looking to piggyback that image and just add in the BootCamp drivers. However I'm curious to know:

-Which BootCamp drivers would I be adding to the sysprep drivers folder? BootCamp 3.0, 3.1 or 3.2?
-Would the drivers be enough or does Windows actually need the BootCamp software installed?
-If BootCamp needs to be installed in its entirety, is there a way to have BootCamp silently install upon boot? More importantly, is there a way to install BootCamp 3.2 without having to go through 3.0 -> 3.1 -> 3.2.

Windows On Mac :: Win7 Partition Not Visible In BootCamp

May 21, 2009

I installed Win 7 in bootcamp and everything was working fine. Then I started to play around with rEFIt to install Linux as a 3rd OS. I managed to install everything but since the driver support in Linux was poor, I decided to wipe out Linux + rEFIt and return to the initial setup (OSX + Win7 in bootcamp). I deleted the Linux partition and rEFIt but now, my MBP starts and I hold the option key, I can't see the Windows drive anymore. The (NTFS) partition is still there and I can access all the files from OSX but I can't boot it.
