    Every time I try to "Download the latest Windows support software from Apple" via Boot Camp Assistant I'm unable to fully do so because after a few minutes a message pops up saying "Can't download Windows Support Software because of a network problem.". So basically my Wi-Fi keeps dropping but any other time it's completely fine. I'm trying to save it to an external drive and own copies of the Windows 7 install disks to install in my Apple USB SuperDrive. I desperately want Windows on my Mac (mainly to run PC games) but clearly I'm at a dead end. At this point, any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Here are my specs if they could be of any use:
    - 21.5-inch, Late 2012 iMac
    - 2.9 GHz Intel Core i5
    - 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 memory
    - NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 512 MB graphics
    - 1 TB Fusion Drive storage

    Mine kept saying that too, kept saying there was a server problem, just kept perservering though and got most of it to work apart from the nvidia graphics, which I ended up downloading from their site.

    Boot Camp Issue

    I know I'm probably trolling here.....but I 4 1 hate the idea of defiling any of my Apple products with anything of a Microsoft Nature. :(

    Just to be clear. It's the updated version of Boot Camp Assistant that properly creates the Boot Camp partition on a Fusion Drive (OEM or DIY).

    The Boot Camp drivers for Windows have nothing to do with Fusion Drive.

    I never said they did. I said a newer bootcamp that supports fusion is coming out. They also have upgraded drivers.

    How's that.
