Boot Camp supports only Windows 7 or later installation on that platform. Please use a file ISO of Windows 7 or later installation.


I tried to fix this for hours, I hope someone can help me.

I downloaded the ISO "Win10_1607_English_x64.iso" (4.29 GB) file and with him came a "info.plist" (2 KB), so they are both on my 64 GB USB Drive (format: MS-DOS (FAT32)) called 'WINSTALL '.

I have the ISO on the USB key, and it is selected as the ISO image in Boot Camp. I also have the USB the disk of destination selected, and yet I get this error:

Your bootable USB key could not be created

Boot Camp supports only Windows 7 or later installation on that platform. Please use a file ISO of Windows 7 or later installation.

I'm currently under OS X El Capitan Version 10.11.6 on my iMac (21.5 inch, end 2012) that is compatible with Windows 10.

If anyone can help me I honestly love so much, I tried contacting Apple Support staff by phone, they said that they can't do anything, I tried to contact their Live Chat, but none of this has helped to solve the problem, and I tried to look online, but can't find too much.

Thanks in advance for any answer!


What OSX Version do you have? This site gives the requirements of Bootcamp: minimum system requirements to install Windows on your Mac with Boot Camp - Apple Support. And you did an upgrade? Could it be that the upgrade will not correctly for the OS?

Looking at the 10 Windows version you downloaded, is the update of birthday, which was released less than a month ago. It could be that Apple is not reconisgin the Windows version when reading the disk, because it is too recent. I don't know if you have access to the download of the previous generation and do a Windows update?

  • Magic Mouse on Boot Camp 5.1 Windows 7

    I was on the last two hours of research on how to connect my Magic Mouse to Windows 7 via Boot Camp 5.1. Here is what I tried:

    By clicking the Bluetooth and the addition of the device. Biggest problem, the mouse doesn't even appear to be discovered (and yes the mouse is on and yes I turned it on after the opening of the add unit page).

    Also, I tried to manually install drivers Boot Camp 5 on Apple's site. I even tried the 3.1, which seems to work for everyone, except that since I am 5.1, it doesn't let me open the files.

    I even tried some third-party software, but no luck.

    I think that if I can get Windows 7 to recognize the device that I could install it, but it does not appear in my choices. I tested the Bluetooth Manager by seeing if he could see my iPhone, and he did. It is also safe to say that it connected fine on my OSX partition.

    Any help would be great! Thank you!

  • Impossible to install Boot Camp support software

    I have a MacBook Pro retina 13 end of 2013, running the Mavericks 10.9.1.

    I installed the latest version of VMWare Fusion (6.02), then install version 8.1 of Windows Pro 64-bit. And I installed VMWare tools in Windows.

    When I try to use the external Superdrive (USB) drive in windows, I get a message from VMWare saying I need to download Boot Camp support software to be able to use the Superdrive drive.

    I followed the instructions, first of the Boot Camp Assistant, then downloading the software from Apple support. When I try to install the Boot Camp support software in Windows, I get the following error:

    "This version of Boot Camp is not intended for this model of computer." I've attached a screenshot of the error.

    The version of the software support that Apple, I downloaded is 5.1.5640, which says it is the right version for my MacBook and the version of Windows.

    I'm not under Boot Camp itself. I want to just install the supported drivers, by what VMWare me.

    Is there a solution?

    Try to simply execute the file AppleODDInstaller64.exe to: Boot Camp > drivers > Apple

    From the AppleODD64.inf file, which I extracted the file above:

    FWIW, I've never had to install a driver for my SuperDrive drive in a normal file Virtual Machine based on, not to use Boot Camp, and I can't read/write CD/DVD without any problem when connecting to the host.  Normally if I just leave it plugged into the Mac and the customer can see the disc fine.

  • Failure of repartitioning after using Boot Camp to uninstall Windows

    Hey there,

    I am running OS X Yosemite 10.10.5 on my MBP 15 "retina.

    I got 10 Windows installed on my device and I decided to uninstall it through the Boot Camp Assistant, but suddenly had an error that repartitioning could be done and the process has failed. Then I tried it again and this time, that nothing has happened and the bar has been blocked, so I decided to close and stop the process.

    After a while, I noticed that the Partition does not appear on finder, but the main part (Macintosh HD) was not the exact size of the disk, which means that the Windows partition still exists.

    Now please help me to solve this problem and remove this Windows partition so I can have a single partition and more free space.

    Note that I'm a little fake. (If I need a complete answer)

    Thank you.

  • With parallel should I still need to use boot camp to install windows 7?


    For example if my mac pro laptop computer requires to install the Windows 7 operating system and I have a parallel software do I need to install via boot camp?

    No, Boot Camp is not necessary to install Windows 7 in Parallels. Parallels installs Windows 7 by starting in the virtual machine.

  • Boot Camp Windows 7 partition can preprocess


    I just got a new MacBook Pro 13 "(2,66 ghz), ran the wizard boot camp to install Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, then used the disk utility to create a FAT32 partition that is easily accessible by Windows and Mac." I did it by resizing of the Mac OS X partition, and then create a new FAT32 partition using the new unallocated space.

    Everything worked so far, and I was able to start easily in Windows 7 and OS X.

    However, when it came to VMWare Fusion, I couldn't boot into Boot Camp partition even for the first time. After hitting the "Run Windows of your Boot Camp partition" shortcut, VMWare is trying to preprocess for awhile before hitting this error:

    "Boot Camp parition preprocessing failed. You may not be able to start your Boot Camp partition in a virtual machine. »

    The virtual machine appears in the menu after it, but hit the button "Run" results in this error message:

    "Could not open the disk" / Users/Daniel/Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion/Virtual Machines/Boot Camp/Boot Camo.bmwarevm/Boot Camp.cmdk' or one of the snapshot disks it depends on. "." Reason: resource busy. »


    I chased the forums and the closest, I learned to my situation is as follows:

    I think this extra FAT32 partition might be the reason why VMWare has questions because I read about how the number of the disk could change when I added this extra partition. So I tried this step ( of the thread above but can't find not the entry of the disk/dev/or anything that resembles this entry in the plist (Yes, I properly open the .plist file using the xCode property list editor).

    Is there anyway that I might be able to solve this problem by having perhaps VMWare to find the right partition?

    Thank you very much!

    I chased the forums and the closest, I learned to my situation is as follows:

    I suspect that this extra FAT32 partition might be the reason why VMWare has questions because I read about how the number of the disk could change when I added this extra partition. Then I tried this step ( of the thread above, but did not find the entrance to the disk/dev/or anything that resembles this entry in the plist (Yes, I open the .plist file correctly using the xCode property list editor).

    The problem with multiple entries in Boot Camp in the library has been resolved in Fusion 3.1. However, even in previous versions, it was only a problem on systems with several hard drives. So, should not be a problem for you.

    The two errors that you get ("preprocessing failed" and "resource busy") are likely related - of the preprocessing step probably fails if the partitions are occupied. This happens if there is a file that is currently open on one of the partitions. Try to disassemble the two partitions using disk utility before you start the merge.

    Normally this shouldn't be necessary, but it is possible that disk utility the request disassemble a more energetic partitions. I would be interested to know if the problem happens again on subsequent starts of the merger with the mounted partitions.

    I also recommend deleting the entry of Boot Camp VM library merger and recreate from scratch by clicking on "Run Windows of your Boot Camp partition" on the home screen of the library. It will pass through the stage of pretreatment again. The pre-treatment is required to correctly detect the guest OS type, the drivers for the virtual hardware configuration and the installation of the VMware Tools.

    Windows 7 is much more user-friendly for the hardware changes, so it is possible to start the virtual machine, even without pretreatment (previous versions of Windows would get a blue screen because they could not find the boot device). If you want to use a VM Boot Camp without the preprocessing step, be sure to set the type of operating system invited to the correct version (Windows 7 x 64 for you) and manually install VMware Tools.
