    I've partitioned the drive, downloaded the Bootcamp 5.x.x.x and put them both into a fat32 usb. I'm going to check and see if it works. If not, I'm going to get some sleep and try this again

    BITTTe,

     

    Err where does one get a 5.1 bootcamp drivers? Got a link?

  • Jognt Level 1 Level 1 (30 points)

    jarvil, I posted a link to the download page on the previous page of this thread. Third post from the bottom on my system.

  • jarvil Level 1 Level 1 (10 points)


    Thats version 5.0.5033 not version 5.1

  • notobo Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Simple task... This one is for Macmini3,1 late 2009.

    First install command line tools

    Then add your boot rom version under DARequiredROMVersions... But, watch for chronological line, put MM31 under MM11.

     

    <key>DARequiredROMVersions</key>

              <array>

                        <string>IM41.0055.B08</string>

                        <string>IM42.0071.B03</string>

                        <string>IM51.0090.B03</string>

                        <string>IM52.0090.B03</string>

                        <string>IM61.0093.B01</string>

                        <string>MP11.005C.B04</string>

                        <string>MB11.0061.B03</string>

                        <string>MBP11.0055.B08</string>

                        <string>MBP12.0061.B03</string>

                        <string>MM11.0055.B08</string>

                         <string>MM31.00AD.B00</string>

     

    After that do not add your machine model identifier under PreUSBBootSupportedModels... just edit your machine type.... Macmini3,1 instead Macmini4,1, After that delete Pre from PreUSBBootSupportedModels

     

    key>USBBootSupportedModels</key>

              <array>

                        <string>MacBook7,1</string>

                        <string>MacBookAir3,2</string>

                        <string>MacBookPro8,3</string>

                        <string>MacPro5,1</string>

                        <string>Macmini3,1</string>

                        <string>iMac12,2</string>

     

     

    At last if you are using Macmini3,1 Windows 7 is the only option unless :lol: you edit Win7OnlyModels at the end of the script... Macmini2,1 instead Macmini4,1

     

    <key>Win7OnlyModels</key>

              <array>

                        <string>MacBook7,1</string>

                        <string>MacBookAir3,2</string>

                        <string>MacBookPro5,5</string>

                        <string>MacPro2,1</string>

                        <string>Macmini2,1</string>

                        <string>iMac10,1</string>

     

     

    Now go to Terminal and paste command:

     

    sudo codesign -fs - /Applications/Utilities/Boot\ Camp\ Assistant.app

     

     

    Voila... Now you have your Macmini3,1 without DVD rom but with possibility for making and booting USB flash from your ISO Win8 image....

     

     

     

    Cheers m8s.

  • Jognt Level 1 Level 1 (30 points)

    Jarvil, I just re-read the thread and I'm not sure where BITTe got 5.1 from. Checking the Apple driver pages shows me 5.0x is the latest.. :/

     

    By the way, a heads up for those also curious about EFI and wanting to install windows 7 over USB, read this :

    Windows 8 forums: How to create a UEFI bootable USB drive for WIndows 7 and 8 (not needed for anyone else that just wants Windows, BIOS, EFI, whatever, as long as it works)

  • Apple Fan343654654 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Good solution, this was driving me nuts!!! the last step asked me to install something codex, but after that bootcamp is now working again!!.

  • notobo Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    btw you dont need boot camp at all..... format with diskutility standard mbr partition with something like that:

     

    diskutil resizevolume /dev/disk0s2 270G MS-DOS BOOTCAMP 45G

    after that format usb stick with mbr and fat, use carbon copy cloner to copy contents of win iso file to usb stick and that's it...

  • Jognt Level 1 Level 1 (30 points)

    It can be done even simpler, dont use CCC and just mount the ISO and copy the contents over to the fat32 formatted flash disk...

    Hi,

    i managed to fix Mavericks' bootcamp so it accepts ISO images and USB sticks BUT still doesn't boot from USB (DVD, stick..). it gets stuck on black screen.

     

    i replaced my optical drive with a SSD and now i cannot boot Windows installer from USB. What's missing here ?

  • Jognt Level 1 Level 1 (30 points)

    What option do you select in the boot menu? Most likely the Yellow USB disk icon, but with what text? It will probably say either "EFI Boot" or "Windows".

     

    Also, the black screen you describe, what do you see before that? Is there any screen corruption? (colored stripes at the top of the screen for a few seconds after selecting the boot option for example)

  • Bibi40kai Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    i tried both EFI and Windows and they stuck in few seconds on that black screen with blinking white underline on top left corner .... it's a normal step on booting windows installer but it gets stuck.

  • Jognt Level 1 Level 1 (30 points)

    Bibi40kai, thanks for the reply. It's not entirely a normal step. If you see the blinking cursor that means you booted in normal bootcamp BIOS mode. So I can rule out an EFI Boot issues .

     

    What type of mac are you using? The following two knowledgebase articles may be of use to you:

    1. Bootcamp boots to black screen with blinking cursor: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4536

    2. MBP late '12, distorted or black screen during Bootcamp installation: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4517

     

    Basically the first link tells you to remove any USB devices besides the USB install drive, the second link basically tells you to add the Bootcamp Support Software to the install drive. ($WinPEDriver$ folder, Bootcamp folder, Autounattend.xml)

     

    Try adding the latest bootcamp support software to the install disk (if USB), or follow the steps outlined in the articles if you are using a combination of DVD and USB.

     

    Let me know if this changes anything, or if you already tried it.

     

    I succesfully installed Windows 7 in legacy BIOS mode earlier today on my MBP running Mavericks. So it should work .
