    Hi guys.

    I've recently bought a Macbook Retina 15" - the catch is that we use SolidWorks so I have to use Windows on Bootcamp... However! Whenever I try to install the process goes smoothly right up until that the machine enters Windows - when the final installation is about to look for drivers it's finding nothing.
    I've tried several different methods but nothing is working.
    I'm by the way trying to install Win7 should I try Win8 or do you have any suggestions?



    Thanks!

    Go here and download the drivers for your machine and install http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5634?viewlocale=en_US

    Have you tried running windows in a virtual machine program ? I would stay away from Windows 8 because it seems to not work well on Macs .
