Download and install Windows support software on your Mac

by Lucas Smith Technology Expert

Although Mac and PC are two different camps with well-worn battle lines, you may enjoy the best of both worlds. Here's how to install Windows 10 on a Mac so you can use all of your favourite Windows apps without compromising the performance and beauty of your Mac. However, there is one limitation to these instructions: if you have a new M1 Mac, you will not be able to run Windows using Bootcamp. Parallels has just launched a new version that enables Windows virtualization, even on M1 Macs. When you install Microsoft Windows on your Mac, Boot Camp Assistant launches the Boot Camp installer, which installs the most up-to-date Windows support software (drivers).

If it doesn't work, or if you encounter any of the difficulties listed below while using Windows on your Mac, follow the procedures given below:

➢ In Windows, your Apple mouse, trackpad, or keyboard isn't working.

➢ Force Touch was never intended to operate with Windows.

 ➢ In Windows, you don't hear audio from your Mac's built-in speakers.

➢ Windows does not detect your Mac's built-in microphone or camera.

➢ In Windows, one or more screen resolutions are not accessible for your display.

➢ You are experiencing Bluetooth or Wi-Fi difficulties with Windows.

➢ You receive notification that Apple Software Update has ceased operating.

 ➢ You receive a notification informing you that your computer has a driver or service that isn't compatible with this version of Windows.

➢ After you install Windows, your Mac will boot to a black or blue screen. If your Mac has an AMD video card and you are experiencing graphics problems on Windows, you may need to update your AMD graphics drivers instead. Format a USB Flash Drive A 16GB or bigger USB flash drive formatted as MS-DOS is required to install the most recent Windows support software (FAT).

1. Start your Mac by selecting macOS.

2. Connect the USB flash disc to your Mac.

3. Open Disk Utility, which is located in your Applications folder's Utilities folder.

4. From the menu bar, select View > Show All Devices.

5. Select your USB flash drive from the Disk Utility sidebar. (Choose the drive name rather than the volume name underneath it.)

6. Erase the data by clicking the Erase button or tab.

7. Select MS-DOS (FAT) as the file system format and Master Boot Record as the scheme.

8. To format the drive, click Erase. When finished, exit Disk Utility. Install the Microsoft Windows support programme. Follow these procedures to install the Windows support programme after downloading it to your flash drive. (If you're having trouble using a Bluetooth mouse or keyboard, it may be better to use a USB mouse or keyboard until these instructions are finished.)

1. Ascertain that the USB flash drive is connected to your Mac.

2. Launch Windows on your Mac.

3. Open the USB flash drive in File Explorer, then run Setup or setup.exe, which is located in the WindowsSupport or BootCamp folders. When prompted if you want Boot Camp to make changes to your device, choose Yes.

4. To begin installation, click Repair. If you see a warning that the software failed Windows Logo testing, click Continue Anyway.

5. When the installation is finished, click Finish, and then Yes when prompted to restart your Mac. Find out more If you are unable to download or save the Windows support programme, please follow these steps:

● If the assistant states that the Windows support software could not be saved to the specified disc or that the USB flash drive cannot be used, ensure that your USB flash drive has at least 16GB of storage space and is properly formatted.

● If the assistant doesn't notice your USB flash drive, click Go Back and make sure it's attached directly to your Mac's USB port, not to a display, hub, or keyboard. Click Continue after disconnecting and reconnecting the drive.

● If the assistant reports that it is unable to download the programme due to a network issue, ensure that your Mac is connected to the Internet.

● Check to see whether your Mac satisfies the system requirements for installing Windows via Boot Camp. If a Mac function still does not work after upgrading the Windows support programme, go to the Apple support website or the Microsoft help website and search for your symptom. Some Mac features aren't meant to operate in Windows.
