BootCamp 6 in El Capitain issues

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi! I have a MBA mid-2012 running the latest OS. I'm trying to BootCamp a Windows 7 x64 .iso I retrieved from an old hard drive. I copied it on my MBA and every time I try to get BootCamp running, it will mount the .iso, resulting in a beautiful :"Your bootable USB device could not be created." error. I tried unmounting the .iso but BootCamp keeps bringing it back up each time. Also, I tried PRAM/SMC reset, different USB/.iso, pretty much all I could think of. Also, I tried running only the last options of BootCamp after having manually download BootCamp 5 utilities manually, "Install Windows 7 or later version" and I get an error again :"The installer disc could not be found." I'm running out of options.. Help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks


 


I have a MBA mid-2012 running latest OS (El Capitain).


I am trying to make a bootable USB Windows installation disk (which in theory is possible via BootCamp).


The Windows OS I am trying to install is Windows 7 x64.


The USB is formatted to FAT32 and MBR.

Turns out it was a corrupted .iso file. I'd suggest downloading the official Win 10 from Microsoft to avoid this error. As a side note, I'm now getting a black screen that won't go away after boot and logo, any idea?

      Hi!
       
      I’m starting a designing course and I’ve been told a Macbook is the best option to handle specific softwares like adobe Photoshop perfectly.
      Right now, i’m studying in Lisbon, Portugal. So, I would need to buy it from some Portuguese store, in case I need to claim warranty.
      Anyway, I started my search and found som results, fort some Portuguese stores , i’ll leave a link below.
      I'm aware that a desktops like a Mac Pro would be a much suitable solution, but I need a laptop to take to classes.
      I think a 13” Model is enough since the retina screen helps me see details better, but I don’t understand the software requirements for each type of software.
      What do you guys think I sould buy?
      Feel free to make any question or suggestion!

      hi gents.
      sorry if I post into a wrong forum, but I think this one is best I was able to find here.
       
      so my problem :
      After last big update on 22.12. my track pad is not working at all. I wasn't present when the update happened, but I was told that "everything worked fine, but after reboot, trackpad is not working at all". I tried to reset SMC, reset NVRAM, remove old OS and make a clean install, nothing helps. trackpad sometimes works at the startup like 10-20s, then if stops.
       
      Data about the machine :
      Current OS - High Sierra 10.13.2
      Mac BookPro (Retina, 13 inch, mid 2014)
      Model ID - MacBookPro11,1
      Boot ROM - MBP111.0142.B00
      SMC - 2.16f68
       
      could you point me to some tool or some how to that would tell me if my HW is workig? how can I check, if my version of SMC or boot ROM is the correct one and is OK?
       
      any help appreciated.

      Salve, sto iniziando a realizzare app per iphone, e fino ad oggi ho utilizzato osx tramite vmware. Però la cosa è diventata un po ingestibile, quindi avevo pensato di prendere un notebook, in modo da poterlo portare anche in giro quando serve. Ma vorrei un vostro consiglio. Il bugdet massimo che vorrei investire è sui 600€, ho cercato molto sul mercato dell'usato, trovando anche qualcosa, ma non essendo esperto di pc apple, vorrei evitare fregature. Ecco le mie domande:
       
      1) Mi conviene prendere un macbook 13" air/pro del 2011/2012  sui 600/650€ ? oppure avrei problemi (aggiornamenti, certificati da sviluppatore, etc) visto che sono già vecchi?
      2) Esiste un notebook sempre da 13" dove è possibile installare osx ?
       
      Cosa mi consigliate di fare?
