Boot camp assistant download

I have looked for a while now. I have found a download page here:


Download Apple Boot Camp for Mac free. Apple Boot Camp For users running Windows XP, Vista SP2, or 7. Boot Camp Assistant lets you easily install Windows 10 on your Mac and also lets you switch between macOS and Windows during restart. The only reason to consider Boot Camp over virtual machines is that there is no performance hit whatsoever. There are several requirements for this method. Latest macOS update. 16 GB external USB.

The latest date on anything I can find here is from 2015.


Another page directs me to use the boot camp assistant, but it requires that I have a thumb drive (ready to be reformatted), and I must reboot into MacOS I'm not going to do that. In anticipation to some responses, we can argue about it if you want but it'll be a waste of energy.


Many other situations would involve going to a web page and downloading an installer so I'm asking here for what I'm missing. Download java jdk for mac sierra.

Thank you for responses that stick to the point and answer the question.


I felt like showing a bit more of the process:

1) 'install Windows on a Mac with Boot Camp Assistant' https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201468

Ok this looks useful but the process is written for a fresh format and install of Windows.

Here's a link for:

2) 'If the Boot Camp Installer Doesn't Open..' https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208495

Ok that's cool now I know I'm looking for some 'Boot Camp Installer' that needs to run on my Windows side

3) But of course there's no link to a 'Boot Camp Installer' I needed to use the Assistant from the MacOS side and the thumb drive.

4) Wait wait, here's a section called 'If you can't download or save the Windows support software:'

Camp

Oh, but this section just troubleshoots problems you have with formatting your USB drive and with USB drive recommendations.


I don't know why it's like this. Any other system would just have an installer and even an update agent for download. Is apple protecting IP and software licenses. Possible. Are they keeping users from downloading the wrong versions of stuff? Possible but there are other ways to do that.


They made a choice to handhold users through disk formatting instead of just having a download.

Boot Camp requires a Mac with an Intel processor.

When you install Microsoft Windows on your Mac, Boot Camp Assistant automatically opens the Boot Camp installer, which installs the latest Windows support software (drivers). If that doesn't happen or you experience any of the following issues while using Windows on your Mac, follow the steps in this article.

  • Your Apple mouse, trackpad or keyboard isn't working in Windows.
    Force Touch isn't designed to work in Windows.
  • You can't hear audio from the built-in speakers of your Mac in Windows.
  • The built-in microphone or camera of your Mac isn't recognised in Windows.
  • One or more screen resolutions are unavailable for your display in Windows.
  • You can't adjust the brightness of your built-in display in Windows.
  • You have issues with bluetooth or Wi-Fi in Windows.
  • You get an alert that Apple Software Update has stopped working.
  • You get a message that your PC has a driver or service that isn't ready for this version of Windows.
  • Your Mac starts up to a black or blue screen after you've installed Windows.

If your Mac has an AMD video card and is having graphics issues in Windows, you might need to update your AMD graphics drivers instead.

Install the latest macOS updates

Before proceeding, install the latest macOS updates, which can include updates to Boot Camp.

Format a USB flash drive

To install the latest Windows support software, you need a 16 GB or larger USB flash drive formatted as MS-DOS (FAT).

  1. Start your Mac from macOS.
  2. Plug the USB flash drive into your Mac.
  3. Open Disc Utility, which is in the Utilities folder of your Applications folder.
  4. Choose View > Show All Devices from the menu bar.
  5. From the sidebar in Disc Utility, select your USB flash drive. (Select the drive name, not the volume name beneath it.)
  6. Click the Erase button or tab.
  7. Choose MS-DOS (FAT) as the format and Master Boot Record as the scheme.
  8. Click Erase to format the drive. When it's finished, quit Disk Utility.

Download the Windows support software

After preparing your USB flash drive, complete these steps:

  1. Make sure your Mac is connected to the internet.
  2. Open Boot Camp Assistant, which is in the Utilities folder of your Applications folder.
  3. From the menu bar at the top of your screen, choose Action > Download Windows Support Software, then choose your USB flash drive as the save destination. When the download has completed, quit Boot Camp Assistant.

Install the Windows support software

After downloading the Windows support software to your flash drive, follow these steps to install the software. (If you're attempting to resolve issues with a bluetooth mouse or keyboard, it might be easier to use a USB mouse or keyboard until these steps are complete.)

If you can't download or save the Windows support software:

  • If the assistant states that the Windows support software could not be saved to the selected drive, or that the USB flash drive can't be used, make sure your USB flash drive has a storage capacity of at least 16 GB and is formatted correctly.
  • If the assistant doesn't see your USB flash drive, click Go Back and make sure the drive is connected directly to the USB port on your Mac — not to a display, hub or keyboard. Disconnect and reconnect the drive, then click Continue.
  • If the assistant states that it can't download the software because of a network problem, make sure your Mac is connected to the internet.
  • Make sure your Mac meets the system requirements to install Windows using Boot Camp.

If a Mac feature still doesn't work after updating the Windows support software, search for your symptom on the Apple support website or Microsoft support website. Some features of your Mac aren't designed to work in Windows.
