Consider instead of create a Win 8.1 Virtual Machine in VMware Fusion, Parallels, or VirtualBox.

  • How to install windows 8.1 using boot camp on sierra os

    Im trying to install windows 8.1 64 bit on my end 2011 MacBook Pro using boot camp.

    I downloaded the ISO from Microsoft file and saved it in the downloads.

    i boot boot camp and she has 2 activated options are: software DOWNLOAD to apple support and the other is latest windows install or remove windows 10 or later.

    I'm not sure why it says windows 10 as it is not compatible with my mac earlier. anyway I check the two options and then bootcamp download all drivers and records them in my pendrive of 32GB.

    He then asks me what hard drive partition and I choose but then it says: he cannot find the installation file. I tried opening the file so it is mounted, but nothing works. I thought it's supposed to tell you what to do?

    Thanks for any help

    A Mac 2011 needs a physical DVD to install Windows and need to use the optical drive (CD/DVD). You cannot use an external CD/DVD drive.

    Please burn the ISO on a DVD-R SL and then click the installation option only.

    The Microsoft Windows 7 USB/DVD download tool is designed for the installation of Windows 7, is not for the installation of XP.

    I suggest that you use Google that Microsoft does not support what you want to do.


    As you have the ISO file, make a record with him:

    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.

  • Satellite A210-15Y - how to install Windows XP?

    I had Windows Vista and I improve it with Windows 7. Now, I really want to install Windows XP.
    When I put the Windows XP CD in after awhile I get a blue screen whit an error.

    pls tell how to install Windows XP on my laptop and if I need some drivers do pls put links of whereIi can get them.

    PS Sorry for the bad English


    I think the problem is that you tried to install Win XP without installation of the SATA driver.
    The A210 need driver SATA to recognize the HARD drive.

    You can also check the BIOS settings. There should be an option called SATA mode.
    This can be set between AHCI and compatible and this will allows you to install the Win XP without the first installation of SATA drivers.

    Also check the other threads here in the forum on the same topic!

    PS: It is advisable to use Win XP including SP3! You can include the SP3 using nLite software!

  • 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!

    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:

    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?

  • Re: How to install Windows XP Home on a Satellite L40 - 17R

    I bought a laptop Satellite L40 - 17r without Windows installed and the store didn t give me all the drivers also.
    When I check your "how to install windows XP on a L40.pdf. It says to download the driver package that I can't find on your website.

    I have a Windows XP Home genuine SP2, but I can t install as WXP does ' t find the hard drive.
    I'd be the appropriate driver package to install Windows XP on my laptop.

    If I have an external floppy drive can't, I used a USB drive external hard also add the necessary drivers so that Windows XP can see my hard drive (160 GB HARD DRIVE (5400 RPM) SATA).

    Thanks for your response

    Hello Xavier

    I think installing WXP on L40 laptop is most asked in recent months. I recommend to check this forum category and you will find answer to your question. If you have no floppy, it shouldn't be a problem at all. Solution is Nlite software.

    Use as search terms in the advanced search option and you will find so many threads with exact explanation on its use.
