How to Install Windows 7 on a Mac via Boot Camp using a USB


Choosing the proper Windows OS on a mac is half the success.
Check this webpage, at the bottom, there is a list of types of Windows OS supported by Macintosh computers.



  1. Please help i made a big mistake, ok so i split my hard drive in two partitions the original one was mac and the new one is windows each around 300 gb in size, so when i got to the step in 1:58 (choosing partitions) i saw some other ones (at this point i wasn't following the video btw which is my fault) smaller in size i had no idea what they are for so i deleted them (dumbass) and choose the one i made for windows and moved on fine until i realized that i ended up with a windows that cannot connect to the internet (because i don't have windows support files) and i don't have boot camp (which seems i also deleted meaning i can't go back to mac). please help how can i fix this ik i haven't lost my mac files but i just locked my self out of them please help idk if u are even going to read this but thanks anyway!

  2. Hey, I'm going crazy here.

    I've followed all instructions to the hilt, using a USB thumb drive with a Win 7 Pro x64 .iso on it with the correct drivers for my model of Mac (iMac late 2009 11,1 with Yosemite 10.10.5).

    The problem I'm getting seems to be quite a common one. I partition my SSD between Mac and Windows, the computer starts to reboot, I get the "No bootable device found" error, I reset and hold Alt, only the Mac partition shows. It doesn't seem to pick up my USB to boot from. It's driving me fucking insane.

    One thing that stood out while watching this vid is the note that, if using a pre 2011 model, I need to use Win7 Ultimate. What's the reason behind this?

  3. I am up to a point where I can boot into Windows and I am on the language selection however my mouse and keyboard seem no not be working any fix?

  4. Hi I got macbook pro 2011 want to install windows 7 ultimate 64bit so far i created an iso image don't know if is working but the main problem is I'm stuck in boot camp assist where it show this message :

    The startup disk cannot be partitioned or restored to a single partition.
    Back up the disk and use Disk Utility to format it as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume. Restore your information to the disk and try using Boot Camp Assistant again.

    i don't know how to procede please help many thanks

  5. man please help me, i did everything exactly like you did but when i restart my mac, it doesnt appear the windows partition. it only shows Mac partition and Recovery. do you have a solution? plz reply. thank you in advance. i have also installed ntfs driver
