I have following problem: I have Boot Camp Windows 7 on my MacBook Pro (OS X 10.10.2). I observed, that I couldn't connect USB flash drives to that Windows system, so I installed all Boot Camp drivers from the Boot Camp Assistant. I copied them to a USB flash drive and installed them on the Windows 7 partition. The problem was, that when I connected a USB flash drive to my Windows 7 partition, it was recognized as Generic USB. I actually couldn't eject it anymore. I read somewhere that this error was caused due to a version of the Intel USB driver i had installed earlier. That's why I deleted the Intel USB driver in the control panel. Now I can't seem to connect USB flash drives at all. I tried to drag the drivers to the Windows 7 partition via VMware, but it didn't work. When I double-click on setup.exe, it won't start.

I have access to following programs or systems: VMware Fusion, Boot Camp Assistant, Windows 7, OS X partition.

How can I install the Intel USB drivers since I can't use an USB on my MacBook?

  • email it to yourself, or push it to Dropbox etc

    I'm trying to push the files to Dropbox and then install them from there on the win7 partition. Puuh 1.32 GB upload, I think I will go drink a coffee. I will let you guys know later how it went. Thanks for the replies anyway ;)

    What a waste of bandwidth! I'd temporarily mount the Windows volume Read/Write, copy the files over and then unmount it. Commented Mar 28, 2015 at 16:49
  • It worked, I could install it from the Dropbox folder. @user3439894 I used the internet from my school on a Saturday, so I guess it's ok.

You could upload the drivers to a service such as Dropbox...
