How to install Windows 10 on mac not supported

Hi all

I have a MacBook Pro 15 inch 2011 lag and I try to install Windows 10. I've tried 3 different methods. I can provide more information if necessary.

I had running Windows for 10 minutes (2 reboots) until he got stuck on the screen to start due to an unknown error (probably error compatibility)

I am currently give up and try to install Windows 7 instead, hoping that he'll be fine

If any of you guys have any suggestions please tell me this is greatly appreciated!

I don't think that you can install Windows 7 with Boot Camp on El Capitan:

  • A Microsoft Windows installation media or disc image (ISO) containing a 64-bit version of Microsoft Windows 8 or later *.

From: How to install Windows using Boot Camp - Apple Support.

Windows 10 is simply too new for your Mac, and Windows 7 is too old. It is quite a difficult situation. If you really need Windows, you would need to get a copy of Windows 8, or put to level to an earlier version of Mac OS X with a version of Boot Camp that works in Windows 7.

  • How can I add a previously installed windows on my mac pro installation

    Hi guys, everything becomes to collect my newly bought mac pro 3.1 (used). I'm moving PC, but how do I add my existing installation of windows on my mac? The mac pro is 3.1 and has 2 x 500 GB disks in a raid 1 TB configuration. It's just a matter of plugging my windows disk (I'm guessing No.) or is it a bit more complex than that? Any help or advice will be appreciated and hope to give back as much help as I get that I'm learning. Thank you

    You can install Windows on a Mac computer using Boot Camp Assistant or by using a Parallels, Fusion, or VirtualBox virtual machine natively. Refer to the instructions of Boot Camp located here: OT If using a virtual machine see the instructions located on the Parallels, Fusion or VirtualBox sites.

    In both cases you can not use a PC already existing installation of Windows. You need to reinstall Windows on your Mac.

    Hello John

    It is not easy to understand the whole situation, especially the part with the virus.
    In my opinion, Windows XP Home edition installation should not be problematic.

    What you need is Windows XP Home SP2 or SP3 and driver SATA edition disc. Without SATA driver disk HARD will be not visible to Windows XP Home edition.

  • Re: Portégé R700 - how to install Windows 7 on new SSD?


    I want to change my HDD in Toshiba Portege R700 to SSD. How to install Windows 7 on this new SSD? I don't have any Windows installation disc.

    Or that it will be possible to move the partition of the old HDD to new SSD (using Acronis, I could move the partition on the new HARD drive)?

    I've heard of partition offset and this SSD block should be the same as FAT cluster (the same alignment).

    All advice? (I know should I defragment my HARD drive before moving :))

    Hey Buddy,

    > I do not have any Windows installation disc.
    Create the Toshiba recovery disc as mentioned in the manual of the user before you exchange the disc, then you have a Setup disk. The Toshiba recovery disc will restore parameters of the box with all the drivers and tools. It can be used on each disc and how many times you want.

    After this change the drive and start the Toshiba recovery disc. Follow the instructions on the screen and everything will be installed.

    Check this box!

  • NB100 - how to install Windows 7 without CD player

    Hello. I was wondering if anyone knows how to install Windows 7 Pentecost on a CD player.

    I have an external HARD drive.
    Is - this posibel to make an image on this one to boot from?

    Hmm, I think that's not possible.
    I know that it was possible to install Win XP without the disc.
    You simply copied the folder integer i386 to the HARD disk and executed to the Winnt. EXE

    I have no experience with Win 7 but I also didn t find details that something like that would not be possible so I guess that's not possible

  • How to install Windows XP Home on my Satellite L500-1ZP?

    I formatted my Satellite L500-1ZP (PSLS9E) and thought DLI install win xp instead of win7 (do not have the disk/partition backup)
    now, when I start it with the cd of windows XP blue screen 'windows setup' inside start but when its finished loading, it gives me an error code:
    ' * STOP: 0X0000007B (0XF78DA63C, 0XC0000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000).

    I read somewhere that I need to download SATA drivers for my laptop and do a disc to install windows xp with the SATA drivers on it?

    I tried to get these drivers, but I don't know that I have need and how to do the installation disc
    I copy my original windows XP Home cd and put the drivers in a folder somewhere on the disk?

    I hope someone can resolve my problem because the laptop is just over a year, and I don't really want to buy a new...

    I just hope that you created the recovery DVDs until you started to install own OS. After clean operating system installation you not longer have access to data recovery.

    You are right. For the installation of Windows XP Home edition, you need SATA driver. How to install Windows XP Home edition on the new laptop models that you can read on

    In the end, I must say that your last sentence is pretty confusing to me. You bought the laptop designed for Win7 and you want to use the old WXP on this. Do you really think you need to buy the new laptop if you want to install Windows XP Home edition?

  • How to install Windows 7 on the new hard drive?

    I changed the old hard drive (500 GB) with a new hard dirve (1 Tera) and now I have two problems:-

So, how to install Windows 7 Pro, my laptop while all the DVD sets are in Windows 8 Pro?

    I found the solution.

    Response to question 2; Download all drivers and software (all the application that located on the DVD of the kit I have) on the official website of Lenovo.

    or another solution, send to a computer service shop and let the experts (workers) install it for me (the most simple and sure way).

  • I need help, find how to install Windows Vista on a HP Pavilion 6475z disk.

    I need help, find how to install Windows Vista on a HP Pavilion 6475z disk.   I had to replace the hard drive, so he has nothing about it and I added more ram, but I replace the cd player so it is not yet installed on the HP.   So I was wondering if I could put the installation disc in my laptop cd/dvd and connect computers by usb ports and install it this way and if not how can I?

    Thank you


    You are welcome

    If the CD/DVD drive in the works of PC Gateway, you can (at least temporarily) remove it and install it in the HP, you can run your recovery disc and reinstall Vista.  Once everything is running on the HP, you can always remove the CD/DVD drive and reinstall it in the gateway PC if you wish.

    Kind regards
