    Hi
    I have an anker rechargeable Bluetooth keyboard model A7721 and i just installed bootcamp. I read online that I had to unpair it and re pair it in osx for it to work in bootcamp, so i unpaired it then when i try to repair it does not show up in the devices tab. About 15 seconds later i get a message to enter a pairing code but that goes up for about a half second then goes away. Please help me as i dont want to have to buy a new one.
    Thanks.
    I made a recording of this below

    You likely don't have all the bootcamp drivers installed, which would include drivers for the bluetooth card.
    Use a USB wired keyboard to finish up the other driver installs.
    Any USB keyboard will work for this.
    Or, a USB keyboard will allow you to boot to windows, then check in the device manager for problems with drivers.
    I bet you will find out that the bluetooth drivers are not installed yet.

    Try turning off your wifi card (you can do that from the wifi menu), then see if you are successful with a re-pair from OS X.
    How long since you recharged your keyboard batteries (maybe they are running low?)

    Does your keyboard still appear as a device in your Bluetooth menu?
    Hold the Option key when you open the bluetooth menu, then choose Remove after clicking on your device.
    Restart your Mac, then try the pairing again.
