Bootcamp 5 For Mac

Posted on

I have looked for a while now. I have found a download page here:

Aug 10, 2012 I have a Mac Pro 2009 4,1 flashed to a 5,1. I have a Xeon X5680 3.33GHz 6 Core processor, 32 GB of 1333MHz Ram, and a AMD Sapphire Radeon RX 560 Video Card 4G GDDR5. I am currently running Mojave and other than the upgrades I haven’t done anything to it. I want to upgrade to the newest Mac OS (and hopefully Big Sur) plus install windows 10. Feb 15, 2014 If you are using one of the Macs listed below, you should download Boot Camp Support Software 5.1.5621 instead: - MacBook Air (11-inch & 13-inch, Mid 2011) - MacBook Air (11-inch & 13-inch, Mid 2012). Boot Camp is a utility that comes with your Mac and lets you switch between macOS and Windows. Download your copy of Windows 10, then let Boot Camp Assistant walk you through the installation steps. Boot Camp Assistant comes pre-installed on your Mac. How-to: How to install Windows onto your Mac. Update AMD graphics drivers for Windows in Boot Camp.

The latest date on anything I can find here is from 2015.

Another page directs me to use the boot camp assistant, but it requires that I have a thumb drive (ready to be reformatted), and I must reboot into MacOS I'm not going to do that. In anticipation to some responses, we can argue about it if you want but it'll be a waste of energy.

Many other situations would involve going to a web page and downloading an installer so I'm asking here for what I'm missing.

Thank you for responses that stick to the point and answer the question.

I felt like showing a bit more of the process:

1) 'install Windows on a Mac with Boot Camp Assistant'

Ok this looks useful but the process is written for a fresh format and install of Windows.

Here's a link for:

2) 'If the Boot Camp Installer Doesn't Open...'

Ok that's cool now I know I'm looking for some 'Boot Camp Installer' that needs to run on my Windows side

3) But of course there's no link to a 'Boot Camp Installer' I needed to use the Assistant from the MacOS side and the thumb drive.


4) Wait wait, here's a section called 'If you can't download or save the Windows support software:'

Oh, but this section just troubleshoots problems you have with formatting your USB drive and with USB drive recommendations.

I don't know why it's like this. Any other system would just have an installer and even an update agent for download. Is apple protecting IP and software licenses. Possible. Are they keeping users from downloading the wrong versions of stuff? Possible but there are other ways to do that.

They made a choice to handhold users through disk formatting instead of just having a download.

Problem: the latest Windows 10 update 1903 runs into BSOD (Blue screen of death) with error message WDF_VIOLATION on some mac models (MacBook Pro 2010/2011, MacBook Air 2011, Mac Mini 2012, iMac 2010/2011 and some others). This fatal failure occurs when Windows is already loaded and system tries to start Apple Boot Camp Utility (BootCamp.exe). This tool is responsible for controlling screen brightness, volume, functional keys, backlit, etc with Apple keyboard. On some machines crash happens only if you try to start our Macs Fan Control app.


Cause: older versions of the MacHALDriver.sys driver supplied with the Boot Camp Utility are not compatible with Windows 10 1903.

Solution: Basically you need to update to Boot Camp 6 or later.

First you need to disable the old driver to allow Windows to boot normally. The driver file located at c:windowssystem32MacHALDriver.sys must be renamed, e.g. to “MacHALDriver.sys.old”. There’re 2 options here:

  • (from Windows) Boot up in safe mode (holding the F8 key) and rename the file.
  • (from macOS) Install Tuxera NTFS or Paragon NTFS for Mac to allow write access to Windows drive/partition and rename the driver file. Both apps are commercial but have a trial period.

After that you can boot Windows 10, but Apple Boot Camp Utility won’t work. Macs Fan Control is able to work without the Boot Camp driver but slowly.

Install 7Zip and Brigadier. Run the latter to download and install the latest official Boot Camp from Apple for your machine. Sometimes it may still download a faulty old version (e.g. for mid-2010 iMac), in this case we recommend downloading Boot Camp for another model using the –model parameter:

and run the Boot Camp installer manually (run your command prompt as administrator):

Tip: to avoid this problem, we highly recommend updating your Boot Camp using the Brigadier app before updating Windows to 1903.
