I will report back shortly. Great guide.. I have installed W7 on my macbook alu.. But when I am trying to install drivers from leopard DVD it shows an error?? Everything worked great on my 2. Anyone else have this problem and have fixed it? Any Help would be greatly appreciated! Am just downloading from the Realtek site now. Great thread guys. Solved a lot of my probs. Thx Brian.
Any help would be great, thanks! Guess nobody else had my issue? When I try to run setup. I did an upgrade of Vista 64 bit within the bootcamp partition and the first thing that happens is a compatiblility check. A couple of things were noted. Kaspersky 7 can not be on the system and needed to be removed before the upgrade would start. Windows Mail would not work. I removed Kaspersky and tried again, getting the later 2 warnings again.
This time the installation went ahead. It took a couple of hours to upgrade and move all the files. On first boot all the hardware was recognized and installed except for my Matshita DVD. Stange because all the other USB devices worked. Keyboard, Mouse, Memory sticks, etc. There were no drivers on the web to correct this problem. So unless MS or Apple are willing to supply those needed drivers we may be out of luck testing Beta 1 on our Macs through Bootcamp at least.
Peter :. The following issues are preventing Windows from upgrading. Cancel the upgrade, complete each task, and then restart the upgrade to continue. For these items, make the following changes: Uninstall these programs. These devices might not work properly after the upgrade. Any suggestions how I can get the drivers on there without the DVD?
Email me, thanks! Anyone having trouble with the Realtek driver? Please confirm if anyone is experiencing the same problem. My original install was an upgrade from Vista 64Bit. My second install and mistake was trying a clean install from Boot Camp. Reading on another site, the way I needed to install Win7 was from within Vista but selecting a custom Clean install. That worked.
I loaded the Boot Camp 64bit drivers 2. All devices except the Realtek Audio worked. To fix the No Sound problem I headed over to Guru3d. That worked like a charm. I must be doing it wrong. I got the same results whether I left the files on the disk, or if i copied to the hard drive. Another error which has come up, which is slightly annoying, is that now whenever I switch back to the mac, the clock gets set 5 hours earlier than it should be. These steps worked beautifully for me on my white macbook. The only thing I needed to do was download the RealTek. I downloaded the Win 7 file and sucessfully installed it.
Due to other issues, I had to delete it and now cannot get it going again. I do select the Custom installation as I did the first time I installed it. Any clues would help. When I insert the windows 7 disk, boot camp refuses to recognise it and Im at a loss as to what to do. The partition went fine, and I have updated my system to the most recent updates. Any help as to how I might be able to get it working would be appreciated. Every single time i go to windows 7 then back to mac os, my clock gets set 5 hours back on the mac. ISO is there somthing I needed to do before burning it to the DVD becuase its giving me an error saying cannot find windows disc when I start installation.
So i cant run setup. I tried downloading the correct drivers, running the setup program says no hardware found , then applying the drivers directly on the device manager to no avail. As a side effect of this I think I get all kinds of funny UI errors, like the task bar menu will turn black, and other things. Could who help me? I am need installing the Windows XP or more finished in 10 minutes. I did this and it worked great. I am up and running Win7 beta. Great program. Hello, i have followed your instructions however i am not getting the option of installing boot camp when i am inserting the disk and choosing the option?
My grandmother gave it to me and I do not have a Mac install disk for it, nor can I afford to purchase one. Solution: 1. Use the program InstEd www. Copy the whole directory tree from the Leopard installation disk BootCamp drivers to the harddisk and replace the original BootCamp. Open the preferences menu of the file and activate the vista compatibility mode. Note: A sound driver error will occure during installation. Just ignore it. Everything will work fine after installation.
Run the Apple Software Update and update the touchpad driver. Activate the right click option with 2 fingers in the bootcamp control panel. Note: It will only work with 3 fingers when you activate the 2 finger right click option. Without the 2 finger right click option enabled the right click is not working at all. Activate Aero effects by running the speed test in the vista control panel. Known issues: Sound effects are not entirely pure and clear! Maybe there is a better driver available directly from the manufacturer of the soundcard. Hi all and thanks for all great tips above!
My problem is that there is no option in the Boot Camp control panel to turn on the multi touch features. Any clues on what went wrong? There ist just the option to emulate the right click. To get the drivers for the MultiTouch trackpad working, install them as mentioned above and update them via the Apple Software Updater. Other things are not supported as far as I know.
Besides I have to say that any version of Windows works best on the MacBook with an external mouse. Ok, sorry for being unclear. Notice the sold blue scroll bars and the new stacks view beside the settings icon in the finder window. I had the same problems at the beginning. I recommend installing only the drivers for the MultiTouch trackpad again from the original Leopard install DVD with Vista compatibility enabled for the install file of the MultiTouch trackpad. Restart your Mac and now you should have the tab in the preferences.
This should work … if not … hmm …. Not able to connect my apple bluetooth mouse or keyboard. Had issues with this even in XP, something with passkeys. Did you install bit or bit? Windows Update should find the drivers for you. Alternatively, they come with the boot camp helper on the Leopard DVD. Just running setup. I needed run the Apple64 setup program, which is buried in the Apple folder on the disc. It gave me a warning about compatibility, which I ignored, and then I downloaded and installed the boot camp 2.
That gave me working sound, iSight, ir remote, and hardware other goodies like keyboard and mouse drivers. Downloaded the iso, burnt it using disk utility, followed these instructions, and everything works perfectly. I followed your instructions.
