I installed Microsoft Windows 8 Pro on my Macbook Air using Boot Camp and there is some device drivers missing such as Sound Card, Gestures, Camera, Bluetooth, Keyboard functions.

 

Anyone got a solution?

 

Thank You.

    Welcome to Apple Support Communities

     

    Windows 8 isn't supported in Boot Camp because there aren't any drivers for it now, so wait until Apple releases Windows 8 drivers or install Windows 7. To download drivers, press X key while your computer is starting to boot into Mac OS X, open Boot Camp Assistant and download Boot Camp drivers

    Herewith the Step for those who have the same problem at least to get the sound works, and some annoying drivers devices error.

     

    Requirements

    1. Run Your Mac OS,  go to Bootcamp and download the Bootcamp.

    2. Stored your files at External Harddrive, or USB Stick

    3. Boot into your Windows 8

     

    to Fix for the Sound

    - Install Cirrus

    - Drive: \WindowsSupport\Boot Camp\Drivers\Cirrus\

     

    SM Bus Driver

    - Open Your Device Manager

    - Locate the drive to Drive:\WindowsSupport\Boot Camp\Drivers\NVidia\

    - it fill find "it will update NVIDIA nForce PCI System Management"

     

    Coprocessor Driver

    - Open Your Device Manager

    - Locate the drive to Drive:\WindowsSupport\Boot Camp\Drivers\NVidia\

    - it will find "NVIDIA nForce System Management Contorller"

     

    iSight

    - Open D:\WindowsSupport\Boot Camp\Drivers\Apple

    - Install AppleiSightInstaller

     

    This should fixed all the driver issues and Sound and get the Windows 8 working nicely, except for

    - one annoying error message "Bluetooth USB Host Controller" in the device manager. Not sure what the impact.

    - Keyboard Fn Function.

     

    thats all i can share. Hope this helps.

     

    regards

    Which part of "There are no drivers for Windows 8" are you having trouble with?

    On my Macbook Air, the screen brightness and volume buttons work in Windows 8.  I had to uninstall bootcamp in Windows, then re-install with Win7 compatibility.  To do this just right click the .exe file, select 'troubleshoot compatibility, then select troubleshoot program, then select ''the program worked in earlier versions of windows  but won't install or run now", then select windows 7, and install.

     

    After that, everything worked for me.  Only issue is if I log in to my domain account before my personal account, the trackpad has very limited function.  (or at least I think that's what happens, since I don't have local admin privileges on the domain acct.)  If I log into my personal account first, no problems.  I use a bluetooth mouse with no issues as well.  Sounds works great, actually more volume than the OSX side.
