    Hello Guys!

    I have a macbook pro 15 2008 late with upgraded ram (4gb) running os x 10.10.4 now.

    So i want to install windows 8.1 to it, I installed win7 home premium x64 first and then (didnt installed the drivers!) upgraded it to win 8.1 Pro x64.

    The problem started there when I wanted to Install the Drivers...

    The newest bootcamp 5.1.4.XXXX downloaded the drivers for an USB drive and when I wanted to run the bootcamp exe, It was not possible...

    It said that the model is not supported, so I downloaded bootcamp 4.0.XXXX drivers but still not working (It said that Needs x64 (I have it..))

    What could be the solution for the problem and how can I INSTALL Win 8.1 to MBP 2008 Late??

    Thanks,
    Ben

    Windows 8.1 is not supported on the late 2008 MacBook Pro. The best possible solution would be to download the appropriate software for Windows 7 64 bit and attempt to install it on Windows 8.1. Boot Camp 5 is not supported on that MacBook so you need Boot Camp 4.0.4033 from here.
