Windows Vista on Macbook Pro Apple
Yesterday i installed microsoft windows vista and windows xp on Apple Macbookpro.
As the Laptop had Bootcamp Utility on it by default i used it. As you may know all Leopard OSes have bootcamp 2.0 included in them,
TO INSTALL WINDOWS ON MAC BOOK
1)LAUNCH BOOTCAMP FROM HD\APPLICATION\UTILITY FOLDER
2)PARTITION YOUR HD AS YOU WISH, BY SCROLLING THE HD ICON.
3)PRES CONTINUE WITH WIZARD, BUT WHEN ASKED FOR INSERTING THE WINDOWS CD JUST CANCEL.
4)INSERT WINDOWS CD (VISTA OR XP)
5)HOLD DOWN THE ALT BOTTON TILL YOU SEE THE BOOT OPTIONS
6)SELECT WINDOWS CD AND COUNTINUE WITH INSTALLATION OF WINDOWS,
7)MAKE SURE YOU QUICK FORMAT NTFS
8)SOMTIMES YOU MAY GET HARD DISK ERROR AFTER THE FIRST PHASE OF INSTALLATION,
JUST TRY AGAIN, MAKE SURE YOU FORMAT, IN WORSE CASE GO TO APPLE AND RE DO THE PARTITIONING,
VISTA DRIVERS, XP DRIVERS, MACBOOK PRO, MACBOOKAIR, APPLE
HERE IS THE FUN PART,
if you have used the bootcamp beta version earlier that program used to make a cd/dvd full of drivers for vista or xp, and you had to luanch the program in windows,
but this builtin bootcamp does not give you any option of creating the drivers, then where is the drivers? internet, ? where??????
ALL THE VISTA DRIVERS OR XP DRIVERS ARE IN YOUR APPLE DVD NO 1.
If you put that dvd in your vista and launch the win32 program called bootcamp all the drivers will be installed automatically .
dont look for any drivers online. its all located in your apple leopard dvd which ships with your laptop.
