Sorry, much older hardware here. What you can do is to edit the OSX configuration files in a way that you can re-download the drivers ( bootcamp ). I did this in the past but it's a long time ago ... search the forums and you will find the info.

Hope that helps.

You need to change the info.plist file of the Bootcamp package.

Please find a documentation before you edit and copy it to have a backup.

I copied that for you. I did NOT test it. Back up OSX before you mess something up.

Before you do anything, make a backup of Info.plist or the whole Boot Camp Assitant app so that you can go back if necessary. Rename it something like "Info old.plist" or "Original Boot Camp Assistant."

First, edit the plist of Boot Camp Assistant:

  1. Go to Applications/Utilities
  2. Right click Boot Camp Assistant and view package contents
  3. Find Info.plist in the Contents folder and edit it in Text Edit (it will make you duplicate the file first)
  4. You want to edit FOUR things:
    • Add your model to DARequiredROMVersions
    • Delete the word "Pre" from UEFIModels and add your model
    • Delete the word "Pre" from USBBootSupportedModels and add your model
    • Remove your model from Win7OnlyModels (if its there)
To add your model to these lines, just copy and paste an exsiting row and replace the data between the two tags with your model code. You can find the right codes to use for the plist by going to Apple Menu > About This Mac > More Info > System Report. Use the "Boot ROM Version" and "Model Identifier" as appropriate in the plist.

  1. Once you make these changes, save the file and replace the old Info.plist with your new one. It will ask you to type your password.
The last step is to do a code sign. Boot Camp Assitant will not run if it's been edited. You need to resign it. Open Terminal (use spotlight to find it) and type this:

sudo codesign -fs - /Applications/Utilities/Boot\ Camp\ Assistant.app

It will probably ask for your password. Then it will say you need to download a developer tool from Apple. Agree to download it. (You don't need to install the whole X-Code, if it asks.) Once its been installed (its automatic), you need to go BACK to Terminal and run that command again. This time it will work.

After you've done that - open your hacked Boot Camp Assitant (it should run now) and have it make the Windows installation drive for you. Have the Windows ISO handy, and plug in a flash drive thats about 4-8 GB or more. The entire flash drive will be erased. This process can take a while. When its done, restart your mac and hold the option key. The USB drive that Boot Camp made for you will be there for you to install windows from. Its a yellow disk icon labeled EFI Boot.

The option should be there again after you did the changes IIRC. I did this years ago, cannot help more.

I just installed Windows 10 Pro on 2015 MBP 15" with
AMD Radeon R9 M370X 2048 MB
Windows tried to download driver but install failed. I finally manually installed driver from the boot camp thumb drive as they were listed. Bootcamp/drivers/AMD

according to this page, https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204048

apple has yet to release a standalone download-able driverset for MBP 2015.

you have to download it through Bootcamp assistant. If you cannot see the option to download drivers, I'm not sure how to proceed.


I think you should just backup whatever stuff you need in windows, and restart your bootcamp partition as w8 or w7.
