    Anyone else having issues with BootCamp and Windows 7? When I first booted into Windows 7 after installing El Capitan, I couldn't login because my Bluetooth keyboard was not recognized (or the password box would not let me type in it). Bluetooth mouse worked fine. So I dug out my original hardwired keyboard and mouse and rebooted. Mouse (plugged into keyboard's USB slot) still works. Password box still won't allow me to type my password. This is really perplexing because I've never had a problem logging into Windows/BootCamp before.

    I had this same issue. I had to redownload the drivers from Apple's bootcamp support site, then reinstall on Windows 7, problem corrected itself after a reboot into windows.

    When I use Windows server system first time, I even need to use integrated trackpad and onscreen keyboard to enter my password.

    This is simply because Apple uses not so common Bluetooth device which default driver package doesn't recognise this.
