I have a brand new MacBook Air, upgraded to Maverics, and trying to install Windows 7 64 bit.


I have made a usb stick via an iso image from DigitalRiver, through Boot Camp, and started the installation via bootcamp. I also installed the rEFIt drivers, so i got the nice boot menu.


When I boot into the installation, i cant do anything. My trackpad and keyboard is non-responsive (I can't even get the caps lock to light up).


I've tried to:

*boot into W7 safe mode, pressing F8 while booting, but it doesn't help.

*"run unsigned drivers", from the same menu

*Removing setup.exe from the Bootcamp folder on the disk. Also with no avail.


I have seen that people have been struggling with keyboard and trackpads in W7 over Boot camp, but I cant even install it...


Please help



Only key responding is the shutdown key.

I don't have any external mice or keyboards.
