Have installed windows 10 from ISO on macbook pro, but can't get audio drivers to work from boot camp - no MacOS installed. Downloaded following bootcamp versions and extracted audio drivers without success. Device manager shows "High def audio controller" - device cannot start. Everything else is fine.

Mac: Macbook pro core i5 13" Mid-2012

Bootcamps tried:



5.1.5769 (latest)

Am new to Macs so any advice welcome TQ

I had the same problem, I fixed it using the drivers from boot camp 4.xxxx.
