I have been looking for Windows 8 Boot Camp drivers for my first generation MacBook Pro. Where will I be able to find said drivers?
Apple does not support this officially, but I've used the windows 7 one and installed Windows 8 without any problem.
I can start my Windows bootcamp without any issue and Windows 8 runs like a charm.
According to the official Boot Camp support page:
Boot Camp 5 adds support for Windows 8 (64-bit) and the new drivers support both Windows 7 (64-bit) and Windows 8 (64-bit). Unfortunately, Boot Camp 5 doesn’t support 32-bit Windows 7 and Windows 8.
So, Mac users have no option but to install 64-bit Windows using Boot Camp. However, the previous version (v4.0) of Boot Camp supports 32-bit Windows 7.
The support page also notes that Boot Camp supports upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 8, provided that you install Boot Camp 5.0 drivers on your Windows 7 machine before upgrading to Windows 8. If your Mac comes with Fusion Drive, it turns out that Boot Camp Assistant will help you install Windows on hard disk drive, not the Flash drive even if you have sufficient free space. Also note that Boot Camp doesn’t support installing Windows on external hard drive.
The download size of Boot Camp drivers (5.0.5033) is 553.62 MB and supports following Mac models:
