Paul Mercado: I'm trying to install win 7 on my mac too but when i get to install part a
message comes up "Boot Camp Assistant did not detect the presence of
Windows support software. The support software is required to install
Windows. Insert a USB drive containing the support software, or click Back
to download the software." Can you please help me out?
adddictedtomacintosh: Did you upgrade with XP already running? I know a new Mac with Lion or
Mountain Lion would never let you use anything less than Windows 7.
valon750: My point is, when I'm done using Windows, what do I need to do to start up
valon750: Um, I keep being told that it can't partition it... I've tried both the
32-bit and 64-bit disc and still nothing... Currently looking at £128
wasted here so help is appreciated -.-
Dean Terrana: hey thanks man! I think i'll just burn the iso to into a dvd. Will give my
updates soon! thanks for your reply! :)
cyclojohn44: ok so now the windows 7 installed.. now im having trouble going back to my
original mac mountain lion HELP!
Armster Hopper: Would this install still work if a fake windows 7 cd was used? Thanks
Macintoshmani12: lol I have my iMac running Mountain Lion dualbooted with windows xp
adddictedtomacintosh: I did not delete bootcamp, I just formated the Bootcamp
cosmi0: And after that ?
adddictedtomacintosh: Thank you for the update, glad you made it work! :-)
valon750: 0:41 Mine's a 21.5", Mid 2010 model, currently running OSX 10.8.4 (Mountain
Lion) After having a look around it seems that I may of had something wrong
with the harddisk, so I've done the whole Cmd-R deal and repaired the disk,
so that may of fixed that issue. Issue is that, how would I navigate
through windows 7 to get said drivers to recognise my mouse and keyboard if
I don't have access to the keyboard or mouse? I assume that's why it says I
need a wired mouse and keyboard in the manual.
adddictedtomacintosh: When you boot up, hold the 'alt' key, and choose the OS X drive to boot
maxkiller276: Macbook Pro 13'' 2.9 GHz Mid 2012
adddictedtomacintosh: Ok, then try to get the Mac OS X 10.6 installation DVD, and use it on
Windows to install the drivers.
adddictedtomacintosh: that is because it does not recognise the Windows 7 disk, is the disk
adddictedtomacintosh: Yes, you can either burn the iso to DVD or you can copy it to a thumb
drive, but when you install the bootcamp make sure you choose the
appropriate source (i.e. thumbdrive or DVD etc)
NYSTilek: Thanks to your videos, I managed not to screw up "Choose the Disk" one,
otherwise bye bye my files and M. Lion
adddictedtomacintosh: When you start installing BootCamp, you have three options, one is about
downloading the drivers for Windows 7
adddictedtomacintosh: at the end, when you are done installing Windows, you boot up on Windows,
and run the support file to load the drivers.
adddictedtomacintosh: LOL, BootCamp is Free but Windows 7 belongs to Microsoft, NOT free.
izu312: ok i follow the same as u did there and i have big problem i put 50gb for
windows 7 and when everything is done it says it already have 39gb in use
so u know what can be?
ColdBoi: Thanks for vid, just uninstalled my vmware and now have win 7 running on my
pro via bootcamp.
adddictedtomacintosh: Wow, I know it should take about 7GB, but certainly not 39GB! It might be
that Windows 7 has not deleted its installation 'garbage' see if you can
find a utility that takes out temp files and garbage like that.
SavvyTroll: You deleted bootcamp when you formatted the drive. This is wrong, you have
overwritten the bootcamp configurations and just installed windows.
Alco Bester: How long does this take?
valon750: Ah I see, well I've ordered a copy of the windows 7 installation disc, set
me back £128 mind you -.- So this had better work well XP
apaisiotatos: the ultimate its a pirate or you buy for that?
adddictedtomacintosh: It will not ask you to do that, you will do it after completion of
installation in Windows, you can download the support drivers from Apple
support page if you do not have them already, and install them.
valon750: I followed all steps up until where you click "install" after inserting the
disc. I simply get a message along the lines of "Could not partition disc".
I also forgot that I'll need a wired mouse & keyboard for the next steps,
meaning I've got to wait until tomorrow :/ (I'm running on an iMac)
weirdo1060: After I partition, my screen goes black. It then says, "Non-system disc",
"Hit any key to reboot". Does this mean I have a bad Windows 7 DVD?
adddictedtomacintosh: If its not a legit copy, you will eventually be asked to get a new key.
adddictedtomacintosh: Did you follow every step from my video? You have to get to BootCamp to
make your partition. Where do you have problems?
Preston Joffe: Where did you but the Windows 7 disc?
adddictedtomacintosh: Two ways to do that. One way is when you boot up, hold the 'alt' key, and
choose the OS X drive to boot from. Second way is to go to 'System
Preferences' and then go to 'Start up Disk' and then select the OS you want
to boot from under OS and under Windows go to Control Panel and find Boot
Camp and get it done from there.
weirdo1060: Made a stupid mistake. I was able to install Windows 7 after all. I needed
to hold down 'option' button and leave the USB with drivers unplugged. It
brought up choices for booting. I used the EFI option to finally install. I
appreciate your assistance.
SANDEEP SRIDHAR: could you Please tell me when does it ask to install the support drivers
and where should i install it?? please reply as soon as possible!!
adddictedtomacintosh: Your intel Mac has the bootcamp drives on the Mac OS X installation disk.
All you have to do, after you install bootcamp and Windows, boot up under
Windows, insert the Mac OS X installation disk, and click 'install'. The
drivers will then install, and you will be ready! Which Mac do you have?
valon750: okay.... but how do I load up MacOS again....?
adddictedtomacintosh: ok, either you hold the 'alt' key at startup and you choose Mac OS or you
go to bootcamp and choose to boot up from your Mac partition.
adddictedtomacintosh: As you can see, my dis was genuine cause I bought mine, I do not know what
your intentions are.... :-)
JamisonAmadeo: You have the same problem I have, the big red X over the internet
connection indicator. How do you fix that?
Cristian Godinez: I thought installing windows on a Mac using boot camp is free?
Berron910: Hey man, when I try to do this the only box at the beginning that I can't
click is the one I should click. It's greyed out for some reason. Do you
adddictedtomacintosh: BootCamp is Apple's official app that allows you to run Windows 7 NATIVELY,
and I never heard of anyone complaining about running hot, but please check
it out. Performance is much better thank a Virtual Machine because Windows
7 runs natively taking advantage of all the computer resources. Make sure
at the end that you download the drivers from Apple and do install them.
adddictedtomacintosh: Please let me know at what point you get that message.(time on timeline)
Setting up BootCamp is very standard procedure on OS X 10.7 and 10.8, and
you can also download the drivers for Windows 7 for your iMac. Which model
(year) do you have? Do you have your OS X fully updated? Which OS X are you
adddictedtomacintosh: When you install Windows 7 via BootCamp, unfortunately, the system does not
take the settings from OS X to Windows 7. This means you have to set up
windows 7 all over again. Al you have to do is find your WiFi network and
give your password. Let me know if you have need further assistance.
andrew tan: (1) will this method cause the macbook running way too hot? (2) and the
performance become slower? (3) Is this similar with vm virtual box running
both os at the same time?
adddictedtomacintosh: Cool, you can install Windows XP on BootCamp of OS X 10.8 if you want, I
have a tutorial on my Channel, as well as other 180+ Apple related videos
valon750: And then it says I need a usb plugged in, which I don't.
