To reinstall a specific driver:
If you need to reinstall specific drivers, you can install one driver at a time. For example,
if your Mac’s built-in camera isn’t working, you can reinstall just the camera’s driver.

Individual drivers are in the Drivers folder on the CD, DVD, or external disk with the
Windows support software.


Insert the CD or DVD or connect the external disk with the Windows support software.


Quit AutoRun if it opens.


Using Windows Explorer, locate the driver that you want to reinstall.


Open the driver to start the installation.

If you see “No Boot Disk Attached” when starting up your computer

You may have formatted your Boot Camp partition incorrectly so it cannot start up
your computer. Start up your computer with Mac OS X and open Boot Camp Assistant.
Remove the Boot Camp partition and then re-create it. Install Windows again, being
sure to format the partition.

Use the graphics card that came with your Mac.


Make sure you’ve installed the Boot Camp drivers. See “Step 4: Install the Windows
Support Software” on page 8.


Adjust the screen resolution setting in the Display control panel.


Go to www.apple.com/support/bootcamp and check for compatibility information
