I am Installing Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 on my late 2012 Mac Mini. I have the S/W on my desktop as an .iso format, and my test to check if Boot Camp would find it worked. Now I will be getting an USB drive (my 4GB wasn't big enough so will use it for the drivers), so before going on this process trying to cover all bases. I'm assuming an 8GB thumb drive should be enough. I'm also assuming the 4GB drive formatted in FAT should be ok since Windows 7 has to read it, does the drive for the disk image have to be MAC Ext'd or FAT?
Any help on this is appreciated, I'm pretty new to all this stuff and hate running into problems during this process will be hairy! Any other pointers is greatly appreciated.
Well I think that's new to 2012 Macs. I have plenty of 2011 Mac Minis using 32 Bit Windows. I was just wondeirng if Jdemelo11 managed to find some work around for the 2012 models. I'm guessing it'd be some combination of creating a Windows install USB from 2011 mini and then individualing downloading the necessary drivers if Boot Camp refuses to install them all.
Got Win 7 64bit installed with a few problems.
From the start I'm unable to use my wireless magic mouse. It shows up under Bluetooth devices, but can't get it to sync up.
After getting the wireless keyboard synced & working had a number of updates to install. After that the keyboard is not functioning and can't be synced.
Any suggestions, not of the questions I put into this section came back with a solution, might be the question I ask? Can someone link a post in the discussion forum to solve this.
