I tried to install Windows 8.1 on my MAcBook Pro mid2010 running that el Capitan - failed

I tried to install Windows 8.1 on my MacBook Pro mid2010 running El - Capitan

Boot camp could locate the iso file or CD the I burnt out of it.

Any idea? should I try with Win 7?

On a 2010 model, ISO (or installer USB) is not supported. Can you burn W8.1 to a physical DVD, and try to install using Wizard of BC?

Please also see using 8.1 for Windows on your Mac with Boot Camp - Apple Support , and check to see if your specific model is listed.

    I am trying to install Windows XP Home Edition on XP Pro. How do I? I load it in the drive, reboot and it won't work.

    Without going into why you might want to do this, you may access your computer's BIOS and change the order of boot devices so that it looks first at the CD player.  When you start the computer, watch the screen carefully.  There will be a message that says something like, "to change the system settings, press F1.  The exact text, as well as the key, may be different.

    Restart the computer and press the key as soon as you see the message (you'll probably just a few seconds).  Once you are in the BIOS configuration utility, navigate using the arrow keys, the tab and button.  Navigation instructions usually appear at the bottom of each screen.

  • Cannot install Windows 8.1 early 2015 MacBook Pro 64-bit

    I try to install Windows 8.1 64 bit on a Macbook Pro running under Bootcamp early 2015. Operating system is 10.11.5 (El Capitan) and Bootcamp 6.0.1. I made a disk image of 8.1 to WIN with a suffix .iso on a 32 GB external drive.

    I followed instructions from Bootcamp to create a partition and then find the file Win 8.1 and apparently it installed and the Windows supports the drivers. However, Windows does not appear as a disk in the preferences available starting System.

    (1) never install two security systems on the same computer because of the possibility of conflicts like this.  Norton may have similar tools to what you were trying to install.

    During the validation of the subjects as that one, don't forget to post your operating system of Windows and the computer make and model.

    Recovery discs are here with your system?  Alternatively, did you create recovery discs?  Have you created a boot disk?

    (2) by changing the boot order, you can force your computer to boot from a CD/DVD drive, a floppy, or even out of the network drive.  Use the startup disk or recovery disk if you have one.

    If the answer is still no, you need to get the site of the manufacturer of the computer recovery discs. I think that you will be able to order Windows Vista or Windows 7 but Windows XP is rained on many sites and an internet search may be more useful in this case.

  • Cannot boot to Windows media. I am trying to install Windows 7.

    try to update xp to 7

    I tried to clean my computer, so I can't start with a new version of xp or 7. that won't work. I tried to boot from the disc, but whenever the application screen press any key to boot from the drive of the keyboard does not respond so automatically it starts normally again. I tried to install both while the computer has already started and I got two different error messages. When I tried to install or reinstall XP I would get a message before that something has started saying "no valid system partitions were found. Setup cannot continue. "while trying to install 7 on the computer, I would get an error message saying"Windows installation encountered an unexpected error. Check that the installation sources are accessible and restart the installation. "Error code: 0xC0000005. I tried to start own like some answers on the error code suggested but not success. I tried to create a new partition in the Disk Manager storage option, but the only available drive is the cd/dvd drive. I checked the disk defragment area and it shows two local drives with the lines of the letter, but I won't let it defrag or disks I could sure use some help.

    Your question is somewhat confusing, but it seems as if you have either a bad CD/DVD player or you don't use Microsoft installation media.

    I guess

    I tried to boot from the disc, but whenever the application screen press any key to boot from the drive of the keyboard does not respond so automatically it starts normally again.

    means that you are trying to boot from the installation CD (not the hard drive, which is usually what refers to 'disc').  Have you entered the BIOS of your computer (configuration screen) and set the boot options so that the CD drive is at the top of the list?  If not, do so and then see if you can boot from the CD successfully.

    Is there a Microsoft hologram on this topic your XP installation CD?  What your DVD of Windows 7?

    When you wrote that you "tried to clean my computer", did you mean you have already formatted the hard drive somehow?  If so, that would explain the "message"no valid system partitions has been found,"but seems inconsistent with your statement that"it automatically starts normally again.' "

    Your computer is currently usable?  If so, what operating system is installed?

    You might want to look at these two sets of guidelines to do a clean install of XP.  The first includes screenshots:
