Currently using Fusion, can I use same Window's install for Bootcamp?

I would like to delete Fusion and go with Bootcamp only. Seems like Bootcamp will run better. Fusion is slow. I have an old (over 3 years) version and it does work OK, but I want to do bootcamp now.
I have tried to update fusion and that site is a joke.
Being that Windows in my MacBook Air already, can I somehow make it my Bootcamp partitioned drive? Or do I have to re-install it all?
Thanks!

Thanks. I am going to back up the few important things and then completely erase it all.
Then enjoy the process of Bootcamp install via the superdrive.
Any advice for that? It has been years since I did it (on this mac) and I recall the superdrive made it difficult.
Has this been worked out? Any advice?
Thanks!

  • Where can I find a Windows Installer disc for Bootcamp?

    Or where I can buy it?

    Any legal (one would hope) non-upgrade install Windows 7 disk.  OEM (single system install version) for fulll (2x th cost of EOM, but install on any many machines as you wish).
    32-bit copies recognize 3.5 GB RAM.
    64-bit Home recognizes 16 GB RAM.
    64-bit Pro recognizes 192 GB RAM.  Probably your best best for an iMac and for future use.

    Your subscription allows for you to install on two machines.  One condition is that only one of the installations can be in use at any given time.

    This is not Adobe, rather user to user.
    Premiere Elements is applicable to personal use or company use.
    The program and its required QuickTime need to be run with Administrative permissions which typically involved running the program from a User Account with Administrative Privileges and sometimes also with Run As Administrator applied.
    Volume licensing, your company security demands, and your company network matters should be directed to Adobe Sales and the Adobe Volume licensing groups.
    Definitely go the free 30 day tryout from Adobe before purchase.

  • I am trying to install windows 7 on my macbook pro 13", when i run bootcamp it tells me that there is not a windows support software available for my computer. Where can i get the windows support software for my macbook?

    Apple only supports Windows on certain hardware.
    http://www.apple.com/support/bootcamp/
    Apple provides their framework for Windows to run on a Mac, a piece of software called a Hybrid MBR that bridges the gap between how Windows reads the drive partition table (MBR) and EFI/GUID partition table that Mac's use.
    It doesn't mean Windows can't run on your Mac, a third party solution called rEFIt will also bridge the gap and allow booting of more that just Windows, Linux as well for a triple booting computer.
    Your hardware has to meet the other requirements the second and third operating system needs as as being able to install drivers that will work for your hardware, especially the fans or they will run loud and fast by default.
    http://refit.sourceforge.net/
    This above is a advanced procedure which requires knowledge how computers and various operating systems, drive formats and so forth work.
    I even admit I don't know everything myself, but I experiment on a separate piece of Mac hardware (out of warranty/AppleCare) designed for this purpose so in case something screws up I'm not taking down my only machine and can use the other to get online and find solutions.
    There is a very high potential for losing your data if your using advanced/non-Apple methods to install Windows on your only Mac where Apple doesn't support it. Also one shouldn't be doing this on Mac hardware that is under AppleCare or warranty as it might be voided. Proceed at your own risk and education.

  • How can I get a better driver for my 1394b Hostcontroller in my Macbook pro 2010 to solve the problem, that it is too slow under Windows 7 installed with bootcamp ?

    Read and follow the Bootcamp Installation instructions that you were offered to view when you ran Bootcamp Assistant.
    Run Bootcamp Assistant again and select the option to download the Bootcamp Support software. Follow the instructions. Then boot into Windows and install the Windows Support software you downloaded and saved.

  • Where i can get the windows support software for bootcamp?

    lost my mac os x installation disk and need the windows support software for bootcamp. have a 17" mac book pro bought 08/2010... where i can get it?

    Welcome to Apple Support Communities.
    You'll have to purchase another copy of the OS X 10.6 'Snow Leopard' disc, because that disc is the only source of Boot Camp 3.0 drivers.
    The Boot Camp 3.1 and Boot Camp 3.2 drivers and some recent machine-specific updates are available online from Apple here: http://support.apple.com/downloads/#Boot%20Camp

  • Can't Download Windows 7 Drivers for Bootcamp?

    Hi,
    I have been trying since 2 weeks to download windows 7 drivers for bootcamp but the process just gets frozen at that point. I live in a 3rd world country and don't have a good connection. My DSL's speed is 2mb and I can easily downoad movies and hd seasons but because of the awesome servers of Apple, I can't download these much needed drivers.
    Is there some direct linking to these drivers so I can download them or any other alternative?
    Thanks a lot

    Using Boot Camp is the only method to obtain the drivers, be patient and try again.

  • Can i download windows to install with bootcamp

    can i download windows to install with bootcamp or do i have to buy a physical CD to get windows on a macbook pro?

    As your MBP has an optical drive you must install from a disc, not an iso on a stick. The previous advice is incorrect.
    Purchase the version of Windows you want on a disk. If you already bought an iso burn it to a disc.

  • Windows support software for bootcamp 5.1.2

    Hey guys, I just finished installing windows 8.1 for my mac (MacBook Pro mid 2012). I realised that keyboards function aren't working (sound, light, etc.) and no wifi. It's because I do not have the driver install. The problem is, I cannot find windows support software for bootcamp 5.1.2 at all. Can anyone help me out here? Thanks!

    Boot Camp Assistant gives you an option to download support software during initial setup. If you have skipped this step, you can try with this download: https://support.apple.com/kb/dl1720?locale=en_GB
    If that won't work for you, you might have to remove Boot Camp partition and setup all over again.

  • HT4818 Can you use both Bootcamp and Parallels with the same Windows 7 installed

    I have Parallels installed with Windows 7.  Can I use both Bootcamp and Parallels on the same machine depending on whether I just want to work in Windows all day (Bootcamp) or alternate during the same session (Parallels)?

    You can, yes. But there is a complication: once you activate windows it will only be activated for one of the two methods you use. So, let's say you install into boot camp and activate windows. You can then install Parallels and it will find your boot camp installation, but when running in Parallels, Windows will report that it is not activated. Or, you can activate it in Parallels and when running in Boot Camp Windows will report that it is not activated. The reason for this is because Windows thinks it is running on different computers depending on how you boot it. This may not be an issue for you if you run Windows a lot one way and just occasionally the other way, so be sure to activate Windows in whichever method you use more often. Hope this helps!

  • I have both an ipod touch and an ipad, what are some cool feauture/apps that I should use? Can I use my ipod touch to control my ipad playing itunes?

    I just got the new ipod touch and I have an iPad 2, I am just look for some opinions and recommendations as to what apps, or cool features I can use between the two. Thanks.

    Your problem is that everyone seems to be using the same iTunes store account (ID).  That's fine when a family wants to share purchased items, but that's the rub - everyone is tapping into the same account, so they can download whatever is available.
    As for icloud accounts, icloud is designed for single user use.  If multiple users share the same icloud account then all their devices will be synced together - same emails, same contacts and calendars, same notes, etc.  There is no privacy or division of data in this scenario.  The usual advice is for everyone to have their own ID for icloud, and share the family ID for iTunes store.

  • Use existing windows 7 image for bootcamp

    Is it possible to use an external hard drive for bootcamp? I'm getting rid of my windows 7 laptop and consolidating everything to just my Mac.

    Nope - Windows via Boot Camp must be on your internal drive.
    Sorry,

  • Can't boot from windows 7 install usb drive created in bootcamp

    So, my real problem is that my Windows 7 install won't boot after I installed some windows updates. I'm using OSX Lion and the latest version of Bootcamp. I've had Windows installed on my mid 2011 mac mini for only about a day. It had been working flawlessly so far.
    Windows automatically downloaded and installed some updates and now it is broken.
    When I attempt to boot windows I get a black screen that just hangs forever. No windows logo, no blinking cursor, no nothing.
    I thought I could use my Windows 7 Install usb drive to maybe try and do a recovery or repair install but now my USB drive wont boot either. I get the same black screen.
    Any ideas on why I can't boot even the install usb drive?
    Note: this is the same USB drive I used to install windows the first time so it's definately capable. I've even used my install iso to re-create the usb drive installer and still nothing.

    Install ISO means you burned DVD installer and did you reduce burn speed? otherwise it is a bad install.
    3rd party updates? for security suite? stick to MS Security Essentials instead.
