Where would I get a copy of 7 to put on my mac, and will these steps work if i were to?
microsoft is your friend. There is another guide on here for seven which I haven't tested but I'm sure is good. The steps are different. I put this here because of the differences specific to installing 8.
I used Boot Camp Assistance to install WINDOWS Ten on my early 2015 MacBook Pro with Retina. I only needed a thumbdrive to install drivers like the keyboard layout and audio drivers.
I tried the directions and got to the choose a drive to install on section. Anything past this point fails. Maybe I am not selecting the correct drive? All I know is that KNFB reader tells me that there are at least 5 drives/partitions available. What order they are in, and how to make sure bootcamp is highlighted, I have no idea. Looks like the process is flawed again. Any ideas on how to deal with this?
I had difficulty in this part too. Your hard drive list may very well be different, maybe you have other media plugged in etc.
What you'll want to do is start inside of mac, open disk utility, arrow down to your drive and VO arrow around. You're looking for something that says something like, "device, disk 0 s 4." Since the hard drive selection list selects the first top most drive, I had to arrow down three more times before I got to disk 4. However, as I said this disk might be different for you.
After creating the bootcamp partition on my sad, I have the following structure in disk utility: an internal Apple SSDM001 with the following partitions: System and Bootcamp. Does this mean I only press down arrow once to highlight Bootcamp?
not quite. after you find the bootcamp drive in disk utility, VO left arrow a few times. you'll arrow passed the tool bar and close button until you'll see something which probably says: connection, PCI. VO left again and you'll hear something like device, disk 0 s 4 in my case. That last number, the four, is what you want, arrow one less than that number. I have four, so I arrow three times. you might have something else.
Does anyone have a detailed guide on installing Windows 10? I am trying to help a friend Bootcamp Windows 10. Unfortunately, the setup screens are completely different than Windows 8.1. The person had downloaded the single language edition. At this point, it looks like we are stuck on the choose edition, language, and whether it is x86 or x64.
What model of Mac, and did your friend purchase the 32 or 64 bit version?
This is what I'm concerned about. I myself have a late mid/late2015 macbook pro with a Solid-state 1tb drive. I'm wanting to install Windows 10 on here myself before Julie, but really want to be sure this will work as advertised. I really would like to get Windows 10 Bootcamped so I don't have to use Virtual Machines for what I do.
I'm using WINDOWS Ten via Boot Camp Assistance right now. It's working fine for the most part. What parts are you concerned about anyway?
Does this guide apply to installing Windows10 as well? I have the latest MacBook running Mac OS 10.12.whatever the latest version number is. haha. If this guide doesn't apply, where can I obtain the steps to install Windows10?
For windows 10 I had to do it via face time, but bootcamp does work well with windows 10. I got myself a couple of weeks ago a used 2014 MacBook air with 512gb ssd, and it works great.
