updated October 2012. Go to the newer

See BootCampESD.pkg download instructions for the DIY instructions on how to work out these links yourself.

Older download links for Windows drivers for Mac models to 2011

Use these instructions if BootCamp Assistant fails to download the drivers for you.

  1. Find your model in the table below. Click the link to get the download package. Be patient as they are 600MB to over 1GB.
    • Q: How do you find out your Mac’s Model Identifier?
      A: Open System Information, and look in the Hardware Overview section.
      In other words: Click Apple menu -> About this Mac -> More Info… -> System Report -> Hardware. Now, read down list in the Hardware Overview panel, looking for Model Identifier
  2. Once your pkg is downloaded, double click it and install to a folder on your hard drive so you know where to find it.
  3. The folder contains a nest of folders, the last of which contains a dmg disk image file. Double click to open. Voila. Here are your Windows installer files.
  4. Copy them to a usb drive, or a burnable CD. NB, it’s 600MB or even over 1GB. A CD is usually max 800MB.
  5. Done. You can now proceed with Boot Camp assistant Windows installation.

    Thank you so much Chris! I can’t thank you enough! The school blocked BootCamp from downloading any support software but I was still able to install Windows 7 and now you helped me fix up the drivers! Cheers mate!

    I just burn the .dmg file straight to the CD correct? Or does it need to be converted to an .ISO? As of right now it says: Burning Image”WindowsSupport.dmg”

    1. Chris Post author

      Hi Jansen,
      Yes, burning the .dmg file straight to a CD is an option. Just make sure you end up with a CD that contains the windows files inside the dmg file, not a CD that contains the dmg file itself. If it goes wrong, try double clicking the dmg file and burn the contents to a CD instead.

    You should work for Apple! I was starting to get frustrated after trying to download through BootCamp installer for FOUR DAYS! You answered my prayers! Thanks again for your help.

    Simon 🙂
