    What tasks did you select before clicking continue? How long did you wait after clicking continue? And from the system requiremments for Boot Camp, http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5634, we know that Vista is not supported.


    Did you read the Boot Camp instructions, available as a selection when you run Boot Camp Assistant?

    Hey Bob, thanks for the speedy respones.


    I"m running an early 2011 Macbook Pro, its running OSX 10.8.5.


    I did print and read the instructions, preped my laptop, got everything in place, but it seems the App is broke.

    I select continue, the tab high lights/blinks but thats it, nothing downloads, nothing starts, I waited hours!!

    I selected both as per the instuctions, but I just went back and tried just the second option ( Win 7 ) and got some progress.

    I am curretly manualy downloading the Windows driver software form Apple ( just hope I choose the right one???)
