I've been looking nearly everywhere for a way to update my drivers. Everywhere I look seem to be giving the answer but that never seems to work for me.


"AMD Radeon HD 6770M" is out of date.

From my limited knowledge about computers, I believe I need it updated to play some of the newer games out on the market.


I am currently running Windows 7 32bit using Bootcamp.


Using and other programs out there, I receive an error every time. It says "AMD Catalyst Mobility cannot be downloaded due to incompatible hardware/software on your computer."


I've tried nearly everything out there and need help getting my computer updated.

Help is greatly appreciated!

iMac (27-inch Mid 2011), Windows 7

    I think Win7 64 bit is needed, & Apple provides the drivers for video...



    Which drivers are included with the OS X Windows Support Software (drivers) download?
    The Boot Camp 5.0 software includes these Mac drivers for Windows:

    • Atheros 802.11 Wireless
    • ATI Graphics
    • Boot Camp control panel for Microsoft Windows
    • Boot Camp System Task Notification item (System Tray)
    • Broadcom Wireless
    • Intel Chipset Software
    • Intel Integrated Graphics
    • iSight Camera
    • Marvel Yukon Ethernet
    • nVidia Graphics
    • Cirrus Logic Audio
    • Realtek Audio
    • SigmaTel Audio
    • Startup Disk control panel for Microsoft Windows
    • Thunderbolt
    • USB 3


    Which versions of Windows work with Boot Camp 5?

    Problem is, Apple needs to provide the updated drivers, no idea if they've done so for Win8, though one might expect them to be newer.

    they haven´t done it for w7 and neither for w8. i don´t know when using latest bootcamp when it downloads drivers to install windows, if those are the good ones. i bought battlefield 4 recently, and thanks to this, I can´t run it in lowest settings. anyone knows another solution?

    first, thanks for replying!!

    next, my graphics card is an amd hd 6770m. i downloaded 13.9 mobility drivers(they appear on that page) and when going to install it says it can´t, theres an incompatible activator or something like that. actually, i didn´t tryed with 13.11. did you istalled 13.11 directly or did you first uninstall apple bootcamp provided drivers and then install de 13.11? i have an imac mid 2011. similar to yours. also 21,5". thanks!!

    I found a solution that worked for me.

    Download the file and install.

    For 64-bit:

    For 32-bit:


    When I installed it said it had failed but it worked anyway.

    It looked like it had stop in the middle of the installation but be patient, it will continue after a while.

    You, sir, are my hero. I've tried downloading every possible driver from their site and this is the first time it actually worked- thank you so much!
