  1. Problems installing bootcamp in windows 10 on old mac.


    Hi I am trying to install bootcamp on my macbook5,2 with 4gb ram. When I run the setup.exe I get bootcamp64 is unsupported on this computer model. I have tried using the command msiexec /i BootCamp.msi. but than i get bootcamp requires that your mac is running windows 7. My question is how do i bypass both? I have tried to use compatibility mode but it did not fix it.

    This mac officially only supports windows XP-7 I am running windows 10 X64. I would prefer not to install the X86 version as I need the latest version of Vbox.

  2. Attempting to install windows 10 on mac via bootcamp.

    Hello,

    To Install Windows 10 in Mac you need:

    • Windows 10.iso
    • USB drive atleast 8 GB (To Create Bootable USB for windows installation)

    NOTE: Make sure that no other USB or another media installed to perform this operation

    Make sure that When you try your bootcamp assistant for Windows installation. You need
    Administrator Control for this operation.

    When Boot Camp Assistant started it gives you three options, all three tasks are checked. Then Continue.

    • In the Next Step Boot camp assistant ask to Create bootable USB drive for windows 7 or later version installation, select the
      Windows ISO image, select a destination USB drive, and then click to
      Continue.
    • After that Boot camp Assistant will prompt you to choose the size of the partition that you'll use for Windows. So this is the time when you can choose partition size for your Windows and
      choose high amount of size for your Windows Installation partition.
    • When It's Done, Don't remove the flash Drive, Click to Install.
      The partition will takes place and then the Mac will RESTART. Make Sure the
      flash drive remained plugged in for the Windows Installation.
    • Then mac will boot from USB drive where Windows setup contain for Windows installation, Windows Setup boot and ask for accept agreement and then give you partition option where you want to install and then choose
      BOOTCAMP partition and format it.
    • Then click next and sit back and relax until Installation is complete. And Here we go, your Mac book is Ready With
      Windows 10 with dual boot MAC OS.

    Hope this is Helpful for you Problems installing bootcamp in windows 10 on old mac. :)

  3. Bootcamp Drivers install, windows 7

    Alright I am still having an issue with installing Bootcamp.

    First I solved the "boot camp x64 is unsupported"

    1. Right click computer
    2. Select manage
    3. Select Local Users and Groups
    4. Select Users Folder
    5. Double click administrator
    6. Uncheck Account is disabled
    7. Apply
    8. Log off, then log on as Admin.

    Now I have a new Issue with getting the following message during Boot Camp install

    "A system restart is pending. Complete the restart and then retry this installation."

    Solution : http://pc-mac-linux.blogspot.com/2008/11/restart-pending-with-bootcamp-drivers.html

    My only problem is after I follow the steps in that solution, which involve :
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager and delete or rename the PendingFileRenameOperations

    In Regedit I go to that specific address and this value date is always coming back into the PendingFileNameOperations registery file:

    Value Data: \??\C:\Windows\NV37603704.TMP\nvsvc.ini

    Everytime I start bootcamp I have to install a nvidia driver off the start, usually there are always restarts with nvidia drivers, could this be why it always says there is a pending restart?

    If i could figure out why that Value data keeps coming back, i can fix it and finally install the bootcamp drivers.

    Thanks guys

    Edit: I have confirmed that it must be the bootcamp installation itself that is causing the Value data, I have deleted the value in the reg file, restarted, checked the registery, no PendingFileNameOperations, then i tried installing Bootcamp64 again, Nvidia installed a driver, then it went back to boot camp, then The restart is pending message came back. So I checked the registery again, and the Value data is back. How do I fix this when bootcamp itself is causing it?

    Problems installing bootcamp in windows 10 on old mac.

    Will Upgrading to Windows 10 using Bootcamp on Mac OSX ruin the bootcamp installation?

    Upgrading to Windows 10 will not harm your Mac partition as long as you install only to the Bootcamp partition (C: BOOTCAMP). They're treated like two separate disks. Of course, just back up all of your data first as a safety net, though you should be doing
    that anyway. Also remember you can hold down the Option (alt) key at startup on your Mac and choose any bootable drive available, should you forget how to get back to your Mac startup.

    That said, Windows 10 is great on Mac hardware. I'm running a 27" Late 2012 iMac (i7, Fusion Drive) and upgraded with no problems. I do recommend first creating the bootcamp utilities flash drive so that you can reinstall the drivers for your hardware if
    you need to (they should all work fine with Windows 10). I've had no issue with any of Bootcamp drivers, including bluetooth but your mileage my vary. Problems installing bootcamp in windows 10 on old mac. :)
