I just upgraded Windows on my Macbook Pro from Windows 7 to Windows 10, taking up on the free upgrade offer. What I assumed would happen, and did, was that the hardware wouldn’t be supported since Apple haven’t released the official Bootcamp drivers supporting Windows 10 yet.
After installing Windows 101 and noticing that I was unable to right-click using the trackpad, and that there was not sound available, I tried downloading the latest Bootcamp drivers, but was only greeted by this friendly message when trying to install them:
This version of Boot Camp is not intended for this computer model.
After some trial-and-error, and connecting my Logitech G700 gaming mouse providing me with the ability to right-click, I found a solution that seems to work great: Just make the installer ignore the checks!
Start by downloading the current Bootcamp drivers and unpack them somewhere. Then download InstEd It and open the
BootCamp/Drivers/Apple/BootCamp.msi file using the application. Find the table called
LaunchCondition and select
Drop table2. Save the file and run the
BootCamp.msi from within Windows and it should start installing the drivers! Reboot when prompted and you should be all set!
