Windows On Mac :: 7 Pro Student Bootcamp Not Booting - How To Fix It

Oct 26, 2009

I successfully performed a clean install using VMWare Fusion and the Windows 7 ISO. The installer accepted by serial as well. I restarted in VMWare and it ran fine, but when I try to boot in Bootcamp, it flips to a blue screen for a second and then it shuts down and restarts.

Anyone had this problem and know a fix for it?

OS X :: Windows 7 Student Offer Works On Mac's Bootcamp?

Sep 18, 2009

They are offering Windows 7 home premium for $29.99 to students, but I use Snow Leopard. I wanted to add the Windows 7 in my computer to use for bootcamp. So my question is.. is this an upgrade (do I need a pre-existing Windows XP or Vista software) or can I have nothing previously and it allows me to install from scratch?

Windows On Mac :: BootCamp Partition Not Booting

Dec 18, 2010

I've been running Windows 7 64 bit on my MacBook Pro for many months now and have had no problems with it, however last week my BootCamp partition decided not to launch anymore and instead it goes straight into Startup Repair. Startup Repair is never able to find a problem and shuts my computer down straight after. Now I'm stuck using OS X without the programs and such I need.

Windows On Mac :: Clock In OSX Falls Behind After Booting Out Of Bootcamp?

Jul 22, 2010

As the title says, when I boot out of bootcamp and back into OSX, my clock falls back by 4 hours, but the clock on the windows side (Win 7) is running fine. I've done some searching, but have found little useful information and all the threads I've come across (not just on this site) have been 2-3 years old and didn't have any clear answers.

Windows On Mac :: Partition Errors In Bootcamp When Booting Vista?

Mar 25, 2009

I did the Bootcamp thing, partitioned the drive and installed Vista. Everything went well and Vista works just fine. But everytime I boot into windows, I get partition errors before it boots.

For example it says:

"Warning: Unrecognized partition table for Drive 80. Please rebuild it using a Microsoft-compatible FDISK tool (err=4)"

It will come up 3 times, and then boot into Vista. Both OSX and Vista are working fine, but something is definately wrong though since I am getting this error.

Mac Pro :: Bootcamp Now Not Booting

May 29, 2010

A friend of mine has a Mac Pro Desktop. He was currently running a Snow Leopard and installed Bootcamp. When he was prompted to insert his Windows he did and it rebooted. Now after rebooting it prompts him to " Select CD-Rom Boot Type: 1. or 2." but the keyboard will not respond. I cannot open the CD tray to insert the Mac OSX CD. So how can I restore the Mac back to where he was before the bootcamp installation. He does does have a Time Capsule installed.

Mac Pro :: Unable To Booting After Bootcamp Installation?

Oct 22, 2009

I tried to install Bootcamp (XP Pro SP3) on my Mac Pro (2.66GHz....) and it was not playing nicely.

I have OSX on one HD and I wanted to install XP on a 2nd internal HD. Everything started OK but the installation of XP just gave up on me so I decided to go back into OSX and start again.

No joy. Now when I boot my Mac Pro I got the 'bong' but nothing happens.

I have tried removing the HD that had XP on, still no joy. I tried booting off the OSX DVD, no joy.

My guess is that XP has screwed something on the boot loader (or whatever it uses). Is there anyway of doing a hard reset of that to get OSX back?

Windows On Mac :: Black Screen With Underscore At Top Left Corner / Booting Into Windows 7

Oct 11, 2009

This only happens when I choose to boot into windows. The screen sort of hangs for about 20 seconds in a black screen with an underscore at the top left corner before even starting to boot into windows. I know its normal for this to happen for like 5 seconds tops, but this is happening for about 20 seconds and its dreadful trying to boot into Windows 7 because it takes so long. When windows is done starting up i don't even get any messages saying startup failed or something like that. This is so annoying that I even reinstalled everything but the same thing happened.

Windows On Mac :: Booting Options With Multiple Windows Partitioning

Jul 14, 2009

I have Windows Xp and Windows 7 on two different hard drives in my Mac Pro. Windows 7 had been working fine, but I needed XP to run some older programs that 7 couldn't do. I have been working in XP some time now but when I try to boot from the Windows 7 drive it just reverts to the XP one. Even when I click on the Windows 7 drive to make it the start up drive it still goes to XP. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

Windows On Mac :: Booting Windows XP From External Hard Drive

Nov 18, 2009

I have an external hard drive which I have successfully installed Windows XP SP3 onto. It was a long and painful process but I finally was able to get a modified XP install disc ready and from a Dell PC running Windows was able to install onto the external hard drive and I'm able to boot from it and everything. I did this on a PC because I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to boot correctly from an external drive in Mac.

Anyway, the hardest part is in the past and now my only problem is how to boot this external hard drive from my macbook, which is primarily what I want to use it on. I currently have a Macbook with three operating systems on it: Mac OS 10.5.8, Ubuntu Linux, and Windows XP SP3. I use rEFIt to boot into these operating systems. I tried using rEFIt to boot into XP on the external hard drive but it just gives me the legacy error messages saying that it couldn't load and noting the booting legacy os is not well supported by mac.

MacBook Air :: Migrating Bootcamp Image / Blackbook Bootcamp Partition Having Windows

Jan 30, 2009

Used migration assistant to move my Blackbook apps and settings to the Air using a Time Machine backup from my Time Capsule - wirelessly. Two hours later (not terrible) and I'm using my Air with all my apps and setting - fantastic.

Question: My Blackbook also has a Bootcamp partition running Windows - is there a way to take that image and migrate it to my MB Air? I'd rather not have to purchase the Superdrive and re-install/setup the Windows OS on my Air....

Windows On Mac :: BootCamp Fails To Make BootCamp Partition

Jan 23, 2009

I want to try out Windows 7. During this process though I deleted my winXP partition. When I went to create a new BootCamp partition in The BootCamp SetUp Assisstant, it failed to create the partition on my harddrive.

I was greeted with the error, "BootCamp SetUp assistant failed to yada yada yada, please backup and reformat your harddrive."

So my question is do I really have to reinstall Mac OS X? (I backup with TimeMachine so it won't be a big deal but still thats a very long process.) Do you guys have any tips or anything to get Mac OS X to partition my main HDD?

Windows On Mac :: How To Upgrade Existing Bootcamp 2.1 To Bootcamp 3.0

Aug 28, 2009

Maybe I'm just over thinking this, but Apple never posted a KB article about how to upgrade an existing bootcamp partition with the new snow leopard bootcamp 3.0 drivers. I'm assuming if you already have bootcamp 2.1 you boot up in boot camp and then insert the snow leopard disc in order to upgrade the drivers to 3.0 correct? Or do I have to erase my stupid bootcamp partition and reinstall it all over again using the new leopard boot camp assistant in order to get to 3.0?

Windows On Mac :: Booting 64-bit Vista / Win7 On MBP

Jan 10, 2009

seem to have a problem booting from my install DVDs of either Vista or Win 7 64-but editions on my MBP (santa rosa era I believe). Basically when I attempt to boot instead of getting the usual 'Press any key to boot from DVD' message, I get a menu appears like the following....

Please select CD-ROM boot type:_

And it just sticks on there, keyboard doesn't respond at all and probably wouldn't do anything useful anyway since both options are completely blank so I have no idea what it is asking me to do. My Vista disc is a genuine original, my Win 7 disc is burned from the latest MS Public Beta, both do exactly the same thing.

Windows On Mac :: XP Not Booting On Unibody MacBook Pro

Mar 15, 2009

I just had to switch to a new (late '08 unibody) MacBook Pro. I was able to transfer my Mac files from my 2007 MBP, but the Boot Camp partition didn't get copied by default. I tried moving it with WinClone but when I boot to Windows the machine enables the backlight, spins up the CD, but never does anything else.

I tried to completely remove and recreate the Boot Camp partition but 3 different WinXP CDs (SP2 and SP3) do exactly the same thing. My original WinXP CD is from SP1 so I've tried grabbing a few slipstreamed disc images off the net. They all behave the same.

Windows On Mac :: Flashing Underscore When Booting 7

Sep 13, 2009

I recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate on my 2007 iMac, and so far everything is running flawlessly EXCEPT that every time I boot in to Windows I am greeted with a flashing underscore for about 55 seconds before the boot process continues. Has anyone any idea what the cause and solution to this little irritating problem might be? I used the drivers included on the SL DVD in case anyone is wondering. Here is a short video clip showing the whole boot process: [URL]

Mac Mini :: Triple Booting With Windows Xp, 7 And SL?

Nov 3, 2009

I managed to finally installed 3 OSes into my mac mini but not all in the same disk. I basically dual boot windows xp and windows 7 from internal disk and SL from external FW drive with another partition for data.

So far I have done this without installing bootcamp into my windows. I partitioned the internal drive with Disk Utility and formatted with NTFS-3G. I don't want to install via bootcamp as bootcamp may mess up my drive and render my windows unbootable. So I am trying to install all the drivers from SL DVD one by one. So far so good as I managed to install the Broadcom network driver and the Nvidia Graphic driver. Can you guys advice me on how to proceed at this stage? I basically copied all the drivers from my SL disk onto my wndows desktop and trying to retrieve each driver. But there are so many. Which do I install specific to mac mini.

If this is done correctly, when I press option key at startup, I am presented with windows and OSX. When I select windows, it will again give another option to either boot into windows xp or windows 7.Not sure if anyone has done this. But I have read many people doing triple boot on one internal HDD. Thought this is easier but you do need an external drive though.Any comments and advice on how to proceed to fully setup my triple boot?

Windows On Mac :: System Booting Without Option To Select OS

Sep 8, 2010

So I was trying to install windows on my Imac using bootcamp, and everything seemed to be working fine. I put in my Windows CD and pressed continue, it then loaded me up to the windows installation page and it told me that I could not use the Bootcamp partition to put my windows OP on, because the partition needed to be NSF or something like that, so I highlighted the Bootcamp partition from the menu, and then clicked the partition button, after I had done that, it was then able to install windows on that partition. After the installation was complete, my Imac now only boots up the windows operating system without any option to what operating system to be booted. What do I do?

Windows On Mac :: Booting Win7 Or XP Directly From Removable Ext HD

Dec 21, 2010

Whether it is possible have a harddisk installed with Windows (say, Windows 7 or XP) and use it to boot directly on a Mac? That means, a single external removable harddisk installed with Windows which can be booted on both PC and a Mac. Is it possible to simply take a Windows installed harddrive and boot it on the Mac? And after using it on the Mac, the same Windows harddrive can be booted on a PC again?

I do understand that Parallels has Transporter, but what I do know is that it is some sort of "migration". Once "migrated", the Windows cannot be booted on a PC again. Am I right? (So, this solution won't work.) My scenario is that I use a Mac at home, but I need to boot into Windows to do some office work (of course, using my Mac). This Windows on an external harddrive must also be bootable on a PC whenever I bring to work in my office.

Windows On Mac :: How To Set A Dual Booting Option At Startup

Jan 12, 2011

I believe the Macs at my college allow the user to select from either Mac OSX or Windows at startup. However, it's a little different than holding down the option key at startup. I think it shows both at startup by default and if none is chosen, Mac will boot automatically within a couple of seconds.

OS X :: Bout Booting Windows From External Drive

Mar 10, 2010

I'm planning on getting a SSD to put in my Mac Mini within the next month or two, but there are a few questions I have about it. I'll still have the 160 GB HDD that's in the Mini currently, and I'll buy an enclosure for it. But what I want to do, as to save space on the SSD (since I'll be buying 80 GB probably) is boot Windows 7 off the 160 GB. Is this possible?

Windows On Mac :: Dual Booting With Or Without Boot Camp?

Jun 30, 2010

I plan on purchasing a Mac Mini server in the upcoming months and I'd like to be able to dual boot Windows on it when I need to. However the Mac OS Server (as far as I can tell) doesn't come with the Boot camp utility. So here's my conundrum: Do I ignore the server version of Mac and install Snow Leopard client with boot camp assistant or do I just use Disc Utility to create a second partition on one of the Mini drives and install Windows like any other computer? and keep using the server version of Snow Leopard?

I guess what I;m asking is which of these is the better option?

Installing Client and using Boot Camp Utility?

Or Creating a Partition manually and installing Windows on that?

(would my second option even work and would installing boot camp drivers after that process do any good or would it just bunk the Windows install?)

MacBook Pro :: System Going To Sleep While Booting To Windows?

I switch between Windows and Mac very often, for games mostly. But I don't want to shut down Mac every time I want to play a game. I don't want VM or any kind.
