    Anyone running Win 10 in Bootcamp on a 2011 MBP ? I could run it as a virtual machine, but would like to use Bootcamp. Apple page doesn't show it as supported.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    It isn't supported. Just use the Windows 8 drivers and you'll be fine.

    I'll be doing a new bootcamp partition, and a fresh install, so won't have any drivers already loaded.

    When you say use the Win 8 drivers, do you mean that Win 10 will find them automatically?

    I'm running it on my early 2011 but it was upgraded from Windows 7. You install the drivers after you install Windows. I had to reinstall them after upgrading to 10.

    You can also do both.

    Don't overlook the Windows, Linux & Others on the Mac subforum.

    No, the drivers that Apple gives you for boot camp. Download them using the Boot Camp Assistant when you create your boot camp partition.

    Thanks all, yes I probably should have delved into the Windows forum.
