Hey fellow Apple users,

I wanted to use the new bootcamp 5 to finally get my win 8 installation done right with updated drivers etc., so I already deleted my old partition and tried to install win 8 with bootcamp. But somehow it stops while downloading the drivers for the flash drive and says that I'm just able to run Win 7.

That confuses me a little because my MBP early 2011 should be able to run Win 8. (according to this website:


Do you guys have any idea how to get this running? I also found this support site: But there is just Win 7 outlined. Are they also the win 8 drivers?


Best regards,


MacBook Pro (15-inch Early 2011)
