After dealing with Windows 8 for a while I decided I was done with it, and after serveral updates from Apple, I thought, maybe I can get Windows 7 installed on my mid 2013 Macbook Air.


Sadly I haven't been able to so far.

Though Apple has made some improvements, first off, the track pad works now, but that's juat about where the improvements end.

After Windows setup starts I see my mouse on the screen then I get this message;

"Windows cannot open the required file D:\sources\install.wim. Make sure all your files required for installation are available, then restart the installation.

Error code: 0x08007000D"


If I do as the popup says, and restart the installation, I'm back to square 1 with an unresponsive trackpad and keyboad.



Any ideas?

MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
