How To Install Windows 7 With BootCamp On OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion




What do you think about this video?

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: 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.

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: at the end, when you are done installing Windows, you boot up on Windows, and run the support file to load the drivers.

lolena acansa: what about the support file where do you put it

adddictedtomacintosh: Thank you for the update, glad you made it work! :-)

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.

adddictedtomacintosh: Non-system disk means that your disk is not bootable. I suspect you have a bad Windows 7 DVD

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: :-)

Syxx6: If you have your drive already partitioned in anyway (Time Machine even) then you cannot select that box. Make sure your drive is 1 solid partition only and you should be able to click this box.

adddictedtomacintosh: that is because it does not recognise the Windows 7 disk, is the disk bootable?

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 know why?

adddictedtomacintosh: LOL, BootCamp is Free but Windows 7 belongs to Microsoft, NOT free.

Cristian Godinez: I thought installing windows on a Mac using boot camp is free?

Valon: And then it says I need a usb plugged in, which I don't.

adddictedtomacintosh: When you start installing BootCamp, you have three options, one is about downloading the drivers for Windows 7

Valon: 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: 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 currently on?

Valon: 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)
