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?
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?
valon750: 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
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?
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)
adddictedtomacintosh: Did you follow every step from my video? You have to get to BootCamp to make your partition. Where do you have problems?
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 -.-
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
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.
valon750: My point is, when I'm done using Windows, what do I need to do to start up using MacOS?
adddictedtomacintosh: You don't, this makes a separate partition, your Mac OS stays the same.
valon750: okay.... but how do I load up MacOS again....?
NYSTilek: Thanks to your videos, I managed not to screw up "Choose the Disk" one, otherwise bye bye my files and M. Lion
adddictedtomacintosh: I bought it at the computer store.
Preston Joffe: Where did you but the Windows 7 disc?
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 and tutorial.
ColdBoi: Thanks for vid, just uninstalled my vmware and now have win 7 running on my pro via bootcamp.
adddictedtomacintosh: As you can see, my dis was genuine cause I bought mine, I do not know what your intentions are.... :-)
Νικος Κουρτης: the ultimate its a pirate or you buy for that?
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.
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?
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.
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: 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.
JamisonAmadeo: You have the same problem I have, the big red X over the internet connection indicator. How do you fix that?
Alco Bester: How long does this take?
Hsu Yee Htike: Hi, I would really want to play TeraEU on my late 2011 MBP [the one before Retina] i7, 4GB, etc. Do you know if the game is playable on bootcamp? I would even buy genuine software if I can. Please reply!! <3
adddictedtomacintosh: If its not a legit copy, you will eventually be asked to get a new key.
Armster Hopper: Would this install still work if a fake windows 7 cd was used? Thanks
cosmi0: And after that ?
adddictedtomacintosh: When you boot up, hold the 'alt' key, and choose the OS X drive to boot from.
cyclojohn44: ok so now the windows 7 installed.. now im having trouble going back to my original mac mountain lion HELP!
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.
maes karstens: Thax for this video bu I want to swich to mac osx and that does not work can somebody help me
adddictedtomacintosh: Ok, then try to get the Mac OS X 10.6 installation DVD, and use it on Windows to install the drivers.
