    Alright I am still having an issue with installing Bootcamp.

    First I solved the "boot camp x64 is unsupported"

    1. Right click computer
    2. Select manage
    3. Select Local Users and Groups
    4. Select Users Folder
    5. Double click administrator
    6. Uncheck Account is disabled
    7. Apply
    8. Log off, then log on as Admin.

    Now I have a new Issue with getting the following message during Boot Camp install

    "A system restart is pending. Complete the restart and then retry this installation."

    Solution :

    My only problem is after I follow the steps in that solution, which involve :
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager and delete or rename the PendingFileRenameOperations

    In Regedit I go to that specific address and this value date is always coming back into the PendingFileNameOperations registery file:

    Value Data: \??\C:\Windows\NV37603704.TMP\nvsvc.ini

    Everytime I start bootcamp I have to install a nvidia driver off the start, usually there are always restarts with nvidia drivers, could this be why it always says there is a pending restart?

    If i could figure out why that Value data keeps coming back, i can fix it and finally install the bootcamp drivers.

    Thanks guys

    Edit: I have confirmed that it must be the bootcamp installation itself that is causing the Value data, I have deleted the value in the reg file, restarted, checked the registery, no PendingFileNameOperations, then i tried installing Bootcamp64 again, Nvidia installed a driver, then it went back to boot camp, then The restart is pending message came back. So I checked the registery again, and the Value data is back. How do I fix this when bootcamp itself is causing it?

    going to bed for now, i will check back in the morning!

    Should I try installing bootcamp that is just labeled Bootcamp, not bootcamp64 ?
