    First of all help me to get bootcamp drivers for my MacBook pro retina 15 inch version. They include all the drivers in that pack. I have downloaded bootcamp drivers twice and every time they don't work for my Mac. Also, help me to install those drivers in my windows running on parallel desktop. Every time I try to install Intel VGA drivers. A message pop ups saying, your version of windows doesn't support them. I am running Windows 7 Enterprise.

    I am not having good graphics in parallel desktop so I am installing these drivers. If you want particular details to help me about my MacBook, let me know in comments.

    MacBook Pro(Retina, 15-inch,Mid 2014) Processor: 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7 Memory: 16 GB Graphics:Nvidia Geforce GT 750M 2048MB

    You cant do that using Parallels. You're running a virtual machine where the graphics card seen by windows is a virtual one.

    It doesnt have the access to the graphics hardware at a low enough level to install other drivers.

    If you need direct hardware access at that level on a mac then you need to use bootcamp.
