    I've bootcamped Windows 7 on my Macbook air to load a few games. The issue I'm running into is that I can't find a wireless driver for the system. It's the latest Macbook Air, 2013 Haswell. Could anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks.

    Did you leave all 3 boxes checked when you put the Windows ISO file on the USB drive and ran boot camp for the first time?

    If you left all the three check boxes checked in Bootcamp assistant when you created the USB stick, the drivers will be on the USB stick. Do the following:

    1. Start Windows
    2. Insert the USB stick and browse it
    3. I think the Bootcamp files are located in a directory called "Bootcamp" in the root. In this directory, there should be a setup/installation executable.
    4. Execute the Bootcamp setup executable and it will install all the Windows drivers for your MBA

    There seems to be a problem at the moment on the 2013 Air where the wireless won't work if you reboot into Windows from OS X. If you start the machine from cold and press Option to choose the boot partition, wireless will work.

    At least, that works for me.

    Restart then hold the option key during the boot up. Then just select windows as the operating system.

    I thought so. That's how I get into Windows. My wifi is just fine.
