    i need help pls

    hey Daz!

    ive installed windows 7 ultimate on my bootcamp partition and now im trying to activate it. i installed all the drivers, but no updates yet. should i do that before im using any loader? i tried the first time to use windows 7loader by hazar 1.6 because there is an apple sign u could click in order to say what computer u have but as soon as it told me to restart it wouldnt reboot and just go to a blackscreen and restart again -.- same thing with ur loader 1.6.9 now my question: is the same thing going to happen with ur latest loader? what am i doing wrong? can i fix it somehow?

    sincerely
    max :)

    You should always use the latest version. I can't promise you it'd work, but it should as nobody has had problems with Apple hardware in a while.

    Been having a lot of issues with my MBP - it's the early 2011 model, I've just got a brand new logic board for it along with an SSD.

    I've upgraded to Mavericks but this shouldn't really change how Daz Loader works imo.

    I have installed Boot Camp multiple times prior to all the upgrades and have never had issues - actually just once. I remember having to use an older version of the Daz Loader to get past it after fixing the boot records.

    Now, no matter what I try, I get grub on boot up. I've tried 2.2.1, 1.9.2 and also 1.6.0. I wonder what's going wrong?

    Found out what my issue was.

    I had resized my Boot Camp partition with a third party program called Camptune X - I believe this modifies the boot record in some way.

    I had to delete my Boot Camp partition and started from scratch - now it works perfectly. Time to download those Windows updates.

    Many thanks to Daz!

    OSX Yosemite wont' do "hybrid MBR" anymore. 2015 macs come with it.

    The assistant will give you a fully GPT drive now, which can only be installed onto using EFI boot, which Daz loader does not support.

    How to activate windows 7 and get the free upgrade on a 2015 macbook?
