    Is there anywhere on the net that legally allowed download the Boot Camp Drivers for Windows 7? Apple making a drivers disc fails every time. Any other ways?

    I'm installing it on a mid 2012 MacBook Pro with 8 gb of ram 500 gb hard drive.

    If the download finished, then the disk image BCA uses is in "/Library/Application Support/BootCamp/WindowsSupport.dmg". Mount it and copy all the files.

    If the download doesn't finish for whatever reason, you can manually download the correct package Here. Just scroll down to "BootCamp Direct Download Links". Then either run the package (which should extract to the directory listed above) or use your favorite archive tool to extract it.

    Thanks for the reply, the link worked great! Thanks! I have no idea why Boot Camp would download the drivers. Another thing that I thought was odd, that it had to download to a USB Jump drive and not a CD/DVD. :/
