Sorry, but how to save my changings in the regedit?
I've changed CurentVersion key, but after I restart my computer - it goes back to 6.1 ...
"Open Regedit and navigate to:
and then change the CurrentVersion key from 6.1 to 6.0
Run the bootcamp setup and you should be good - AT THAT moment I'm getting 2229 error (
It didn't work for me as well, 2229 error and nothing seemed to help:
But I got it figured out:
I had a look at the logs of Windows Installer and saw that the install failed because the Table "LaunchCondition" could not be opened.
Solution: simply open up the Bootcamp.msi (patched or original, should'nt matter) and right-click on the "LaunchCondition" entry in the left scrollbox and select drop. this will delete the table and the install should run just fine.
strangely my iSight keeps on "unplugging", but i had that with XP as well
Seems that my iSight is now working after installing the specific driver off the OSX install disc. Windows 7 still a little fussy starting up and actually running, requires a few reboots till she starts up clean, no errors. Also have the old Apple Wireless keyboard it won't either yet. Tried to reinstall those drivers but no luck. Used the Windows 7 add a new device wizard all it says "trying to connect to device". Had the same problem loading my Logitech cordless laser travel mouse, until I downloaded the Logitech driver for Vista then my mouse communication problem went away.
About that driver issue, the Bootcamp installer seemed like it did not fully install all the hardware drivers necessary, had to go on the install disc manually and load some drivers separately. It does seem like something to do with boot camp compatibility rather than the drivers them selves.
Here's something you might need, Windows 7 has a feature where you can do a Troubleshoot Compatibility (control click) for any driver or program.
In my case, Apple RealTek from Boot Camp didn't and had no audio, yet Microsoft walks you through a couple questions (use to work, which version Windows, etc) and it installed successfully - audio restored!
I just ran boot camp for the first time and partitioned the hard drive. I installed Windows 7 Beta with ease and everything is working great. The only thing wrong is the audio, it doesn't work. Is there something else am I supposed to do? I didn't put any OSX dvds into the drive or anything. I just keep booting in windows. How do I update boot camp? Thanks in advance. I'm new to boot camp!
Alright, this DOES WORK, but the explanation falls a bit short.
To get this to work, one must copy the whole bootcamp dir from the Leopard DVD to the hard drive. Then open the Bootcamp.msi in an msi editor, like Orca (http://www.technipages.com/download-orca-msi-editor.html), or something similar, and remove the LaunchCondition table (right click -> drop table), then save and close Orca.
This means that the msi will not check anything when installing things... not even if you have administrator access to install the drivers. And without admin access it won't install directly. The easiest way around this is to launch the setup.exe, which goes into admin mode and launches the msi file.
Doing this, the install process seems to go without problems
Thanks rebk0r for the tips to get this working
This solution worked for me also.

Thank you Chuck Bragg!
I just installed the windows 7 beta 64bit on my MBP 2.4GHz. Seems to work ok. I just downloaded the latest NVidia drivers for the 8600M GT since the ones on the OSX install DVD didn't seem to work for video acceleration.
One question. When using OSX now, on the desktop there is now the hdd icon that includes all the windows 7 files. When I go to finder prefs and uncheck Show hard disks the hdd icon containing the windows 7 files still remains. In order to remove the icon I have to uncheck the finder Pref Show CDs,DVDs and iPods. Don't really want to do that since those things won't appear on the desktop when connected. Any ideas? I also cannot change the name of the hdd icon.
OK, I have not had the luck you folks have had. On my 24 inch, 2.33GHz white plastic iMac with 2G RAM, 10.5.6, I have tried every which way to get Windows 7 32 bit installed under Boot Camp, but it fails every time. I have tried installing from scratch, over XP, and over Vista. I have even tried having Parallels apply it to the boot partition. In every case, I get to the final stage of the installation, where it is configuring windows 7. The screen resolution adjusts, and with only a few minutes to go it restarts and I get a blue screen of death. I have tried restarting in various ways, and even used the Windows 7 Repair function on the Windows 7 disc. This actually shows me the "failed to start" error but also reports every test it performed came back normal, and that it is unable to fix the "hardware problem."
What am I missing here?
