  1. I just bought my first Mac (the Macbook Air 2014 latest version). I am ok with running the OS X. Only one hitch. I have been using MS money for more than 10 years. I want to continue using that software, but its strictly a windows software.

    I tried Wine, but the sunset version was not supported. I want to enjoy the Mac experience. What do you suggest ? Bootcamp or Virtual box ? Is there any other alternative ?

    Thanks in advance

  2. Hi Navin,
    I’m having trouble with this. I have an Apple Macbook Air (13inch mid 2012) and I’m trying to install Windows 8.1 Pro. I downloaded the copy I purchased from the Microsoft site (I’m a student), converted the .exe to an .iso file, went through your steps and it’s not working for me. I get to the screen where it’s creating the file and it just says “Your bootable USB drive could not be created.” I’ve even tried to download your free 8.1 Blue version and that doesn’t work.

    I think the problem is the Bootcamp version because I have (Version 5.1.2) and your link says I need ( 5.1.5621). I just can’t figure out how to update mine. I’ve downloaded that version but no luck. Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

  3. Is there any way to get windows 8.1 on a mac with no dvd drive or flashdrive if so please give me a link, since I bought plants vs zombies garden warfare digital deluxe, and I went to play the game and it said only for windows! So If You Reply Thanks!

  4. HI!!^^
    During installation of win 8 in macbook air (Yosemite), it shown that “the disk cannot be partitioned because some file cannot be moved”, what can i do??
    I tried to boot into single user mode to fix it by insert “/sbin/fsuk -fy”, but the problem is i failed while i press and hold command+s during boot time.
    i wish that you able to help, thanks!!^^

  5. I purchased Windows 8 through the Microsoft site with a student discount (I am in College), with the intention of installing it on my Macbook Air (2014). I was hoping the download file would be an ISO, but it turns out to be an EXE file. Do I have any options for converting the EXE somehow? I obviously cannot run a Windows executable on a Mac without some kind of fancy software. What about just downloading your Windows 8 download, since I have a product key for my purchase. I have access to a Windows 7 machine in case it is need (unfortunately lost the CD for that system). Any suggestions from anybody?

  6. Hi. I recently purchased Windows 8.1 from Microsoft’s site, with a student discount. My intention was to download and install it on my MacBook Air (2014). However, I have now discovered the file is a Windows executable (EXE) instead of an ISO. I do have access to a Windows 7 machine (unfortunately lost the disk for that system) but I don’t know what help that would be. Any suggestions on how I can use the download? Should I just download your Windows 8 file and use my product key? Thanks.

      • Hey Matt

        I followed the video instructions, and managed to reach the Windows 8 installation. However, I ran into a problem. The Windows installer says “Choose an operating system to install” (or something close to that), with an empty box. It says no image file can be found. Maybe I missed a step somewhere. I placed the Windows 8 ISO file on the Mac Desktop, and let BootCamp do the rest. It only failed at this point, and will not let me continue. Any suggestions? I do have a portable USB DVD drive that I bought for my Mac a while back, and a PC with Windows 7 somewhere else. Should I burn the ISO to that drive? Will the installer even recognize it?

        Thanks for your help so far.

        Michael

        • HI Michael McNamara
          Where did you get the ISO file from? Also try dragging the ISO file into boot camp when it asked for a choose operating system.
          Lastly you could try burning the iso file to a DVD and installing that it might also work.
          Cheers
          Matt

          • Hey Matt

            The ISO file was downloaded from the “Windows 8 Media” program shown in the video you recommended. It was one of two options. The first was the Bootable USB, and the second option an ISO file. I think it was meant as a file to be burned to a bootable DVD. As for dragging the file, I don’t think that is an option. The Windows installer appears using the Boot Camp generated bootable USB. The ISO file is on my Mac Desktop. I have since removed the partial installation with BootCamp, and will try again.

            Thanks

            Michael

          • Hi Michael McNamara
            So you don’t have an option to hit choose and then select the file? If you move the file to the Document directory can you select it from there?
            Cheers

  7. Hello! I am trying to download bootcamp and I have a MacBook Air (11-inch, Mid 2011). I cannot find this version of MacBook Air up above, is this version of MacBook Air not capable of downloading bootcamp? This version also doesn’t have a DVD drive, so I cannot use a disk. 🙁

    Thanks

  8. Hi I successfully installed Windows 8.1/partitioned my Mac and everything went smoothly. However, I cannot get access to internet on Windows whole no problem doing so on OS X. I get a message saying that “Not Connected – No Connections are Available and ‘Did not detect any Networking Hardware’. Can anyone help. I’m presuming it might be a driver issue. Perhaps I missed a step in the Bootcamp set up process or something like that. If it is a driver issue – any idea what drivers I need to d/l and where I might get them.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

  9. Hi,

I have watched your videos and can not see what i am doing differently.

    • Hi hemant
      I have just purchased a MacBook Pro 2015. It will take a me a few days to go through the Windows 10 install, once this is done I will have a video up for that as well.
      So stay tuned.

  20. Hi, Guys. After viewing your YouTube video about installing Windows on a MacBook Air I bought a brand new Mac (sealed from the U.S.) identical to the one in your video – I purchased a 2014 model because I specifically wanted to install Windows 7 on my Mac. I’ve never owned a Mac, but I thought your video looked pretty straight-forward enough. Unfortunately, I went through the process but received an error message – disk could not be partitioned.
    I did the whole command + s Single Mode User /sbin/fsck fy thing but still received the same error message – disk could not be partitioned. Like I said, it’s a brand new laptop, straight out of the box,with nothing on the hard drive except what it came with. $2100 later, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! 🙂
    PS: This is your YouTube video I used as a guide:

    • Hi Brian
      Iam working on a few new videos regarding Windows install on 2015 Mac.
      Stay tuned and I will post up the video shortly. Some others have been having this issue so to try and help out I have just got my hands on a 2015 Mac.
      Cheers
      Matt

      • Thanks so much for your reply.
        Mine’s actually a 2014 Mac, but any advice on this issue would be welcome. I’ll watch out for your video. I opted for a 2014 Mac, because the 2015 doesn’t support Windows 7 … so I’ve been told, and I particularly wanted W7 on it.
        Cheers.

  21. I have a Win10 preview installed on my 2014 Air and I want to uninstall it and get back that extra 120GB as I’m selling my Air. How do I do that? Thank you.

  22. I have a macbook air late 2014 and trying to install windows 7 64bit via bootcamp. I get to the partition part and then the screen goes blank. If i switch it off and then reboot holding down the ALT key i get the mac hd and the windows USB. Whn i select the windows USB it loads and start to load windows, i get to the setup screen for country etc and and can go no further as i ahve no keyboard or mouse even if i plug and external mouse into the USB port.
    Has anyone got a solution been at this for 2 weeks now and just no further forward.

  23. Hi, I downloaded the Windows ISO three of them for MacBook Air (13-inch, Mid 2011) , but none is work. It just show up the folder and not an ‘installer’ for ISO image after I unzipped it. any Idea? Thank you 🙂

  24. Hi! I am using a macbook air mid-2011 and i have downloaded bootcamp 5.0.5033 but i cant run the setup.exe file in the folder given. i already have a Windows SP1 Activated ISO. I also installed it. But after rebooting to windows, I can’t use my keyboard or trackpad that is why I think the drivers from the bootcamp are the ones i need or the ones im lacking. How can I run this bootcamp with my Macbook Air Mid-2011 Yosemite ????

      • Hi Matt,

        No, I haven’t. I have read something about compatibility of external mouse and keyboard such as the USB Port 2.0 or 3.0. Such as concerned, is standard compatible with my Macbook Air Mid-2011? As far as I know, I’ve reached the installation progress of windows up to the point where my macbook restarts and starts up as windows until they asked me for language to be used for the Windows 7. Then I can’t use my keyboard and trackpad anymore. With what I said, I can say that I am doing the correct procedures, yes?

        Hennessy

      • Just a follow up, you mean I really don’t need to install bootcamp yet? I just need external devices to finish the installation of the Windows then install the bootcamp in the Windows partition?

  25. Can you create a video about installing Windows on a 2015 Mac AIR the has Bootcamp 6.0 please. I have tried several times and it does not seem to work. I have also tried Windows 8.1 and Windows10. No where seems to have a support video and Apple support blame Microsoft installer!!
