Plug in a USB drive that is formatted with FAT while on Mac OS and run Bootcamp Utility, then select the download Windows drivers option. Reboot back into Windows and run Bootcamp.exe/Setup.exe either from AutoPlay or manually.

More people have problems with BootCamp trying to partition manually than any other way. This is what I would do: Boot into recovery mode. Get into disk utility Delete the partition you created for Windows Expand your Mac partition all the way into the available space Now (assuming you already have the BootCamp media created) Run the BootCamp.app and ...

It seems to be possible to install Windows 7/8 to an external drive but a lot of work is necessary to overcome Boot Camp/Windows 7/8 restrictions. The following guide is shamelessly stolen at bleeptobleep.blogspot.de. All credits go to the the respective persons/groups of persons. To keep the formatting and improve readability i didn't choose the quote ...

From the Tom's Hardware Forum: By default, the OSX disk utility creates a new partition as GUID. Windows can't read it. You need to create the partition type as MBR, which Windows can read. Then format as exFAT and both machines will read it.

You may use some third party tools like Paragon-NTFS. It installs a driver on the Mac side that reads the NTFS partition of your Windows side. Some years ago I used the free "FUSE" drivers, but it seems to me, the development has stopped. http://www.paragon-software.com/home/ntfs-mac/index.html Another solution would be to use a USB thumb drive, which is ...

The answer really depends on the model of your Mac. Generally, if your Mac came with an internal optical drive, you probably should install using the DVD. Also, the Boot Camp Assistant is a good source to answer your question. If the option to create a Windows install USB flash drive is available, then you probably will need to create an iso file from your ...

Here are the steps I use to install Windows without needing to burn to a DVD or flash drive. Keep in mind that the final product will NOT be a virtual machine: Install VirtualBox from http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/4.3.28/VirtualBox-4.3.28-100309-OSX.dmg. Make sure it installs the command line tools. Once installed, open it and create a new VM ...

I followed this tutor here and got success: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hE8If6gabUI. EDITED: the "Create a Windows 7 install disk" option is hidden coz of your system had limited some conditions/environments. So all you have to do is "add" them by editing bootcamp's "info.plist" file: Open Package content of Boot Camp Assistant app, backup ...

Using boot camp or virtualization software (e.g., Parallels) works fine with the MacBook Pro systems, though it is important to avoid skimping on the hard drive space, which is the case here. These days, one would want 512 GB as a minimum, though preferably 1 TB. Instead of installing Windows on the external hard drive, continue with the existing 64 GB boot ...

Well I've finally found an answer: just use a Windows 8 install CD ROM with the standard 'install Windows 7 or later option' selected. Do not install Windows 8.1. It seems the problem is with the latter messing around Boot Camp normal procedures rendering audio and some other components unusable. Where my MBP 13″ mid 2012 wouldn't complete my installation ...

At first glance, I am wondering why you are using an HD 4000 driver for an AMD Radeon HD 6970M chip. Have you tried downloading and installing the AMD Drivers? http://www.amd.com/en-us/products/graphics/desktop/6000/6970

No. Visual Studio Code is a glorified text editor I am not certain, but usually enterprise is for volume licensing, although there may be other features given in enterprise not present in professional. I think this is personal preference, pros are you don't need to burn a DVD or mount an ISO, and rather than one large file download it is lots of little ...
