    Too bad I installed Windows 7.

    Erm... no I don't think the issue is with the BootCamp drivers: windows setup doesn't use any drivers except those which are on the Windows install image, unless you slipstream the BootCamp drivers into your Windows install image (or have an AutoUnattend that adds them). During normal installation, the BootCamp drivers aren't installed until after Windows is installed.. which would be after the Boot Config error message is seen - if you look at the AutoUnattend.xml file, the BootCamp drivers are run as a FirstLogonCommand - so first time that you logon (I've always had to run them manually, to be honest).


    The Intel IrisPro driver still fails to install with BootCamp v5.1.5640, as the Intel GPU is still disabled in EFI.

    Maybe when Mavericks 10.9.2 is released there will be a BootCamp Assistant and/or EFI update... fingers crossed.

    Hey guys,

    i have a working windows 8.1 installation on my rMBP late 2013 - is a bootcamp update still recommended? is it even possible to update the -working- windows installation by simply downloading/installing the new drivers?

    thank you

  • Christian Oliff Level 1 Level 1

    Hi rMacBookProlate2013 - yes, if you already have Windows installd you can download and install the newly updated Bootcamp drivers. If you have any problems with anything working then it's worth doing so. If everything is working 100% perfectly for you then you may want to just leave it as it is and not install them though.

    I've been holding off installing Boot Camp until Apple fixes this issue. I can verify that the latest driver update from Apple doesn't fix the EFI install problem with Windows 8.1.

    This works perfectly fine and I have done installation in less than 20 mins. Now how to get the BOOTCAMP driver current driver don not work.



    Thanks !!!

    I am planning to get myself a macbook pro 15 inch, the base model. Now that one has 256gb SSD. Can anyone tell me how much space is still left after installing Windows in a partition? Will 256 GB fall short?



  • BobTheFisherman Level 6 Level 6

    There now is a Windows 8.1 Windows Support software download.

  • jarvil Level 1 Level 1

    FYI this software is automatically downloaded when you use the boot camp assistant. Be warned it is now 925MB in size. So it will take time to download.

    Mine was 1.35GB (Mid 2012 rMBP 10,1)

  • jarvil Level 1 Level 1

    Massive! Might as well include Windows 8.1 while they are at it. I am doing a Bootcamp 8.1 install right now. Lets see if it works this time.... been waiting so long now for this to work. Late 2013 Retina MBP.

  • s3logic Level 1 Level 1

    Wooo! If you're manually downloading, make sure you read the release notes ... I ended up with the wrong version at first (need 5.1.5640 for MacBook Pro Retina, 15-inch, Late 2013):


    For more information on Boot Camp, click here:

    Note: If you are using one of the Macs listed below, you should download Boot Camp Support Software 5.1.5640 instead.

    MacBook Air (11-inch, Mid 2013)

    MacBook Air (13-inch, Mid 2013)

    MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013)

    MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Late 2013)

    iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2013)

    Does anyone know if this should support cooperation between NVidia 750M & Intel Iris? I ran the setup.exe to update the drivers as I had already gone about installing Windows 8 by manually copying over the EFI files during install, etc...


    When I updated the drivers and ran msinfo32 (and also checked the device manager) I can't seem to find anything other than the NVidia 750M being used for graphics (same as it was before)


    Maybe I need to re-install, but would like to know if it's worth it...

  • CherryHintonBlue Level 1 Level 1

    Well, I do appreciate that the only identifiable development in this whole saga has been an updated drivers download, but the standard no-tricks installation has suddenly worked for the first time. I've had the same problems as most other people on my late-2013 Retina MBP ...until now. I didn't do anything different from previous failed installations, so I've no explanation to offer anyone (sorry!) other than to suggest trying once more.


    It's been great reading all your contributions guys, I hope never to see this thread again...

  • s3logic Level 1 Level 1

    probably because your boot camp drivers were updated
