So my next three posts are a little out of the ordinary for me, but might be useful to you. Well, this one might be useful to you if you happen to have an older MacBook (late ’08 for me) as your primary computer and really really really want to play Star Wars: The Old Republic online. Specifically, if you get past using bootcamp to partition your disc, install windows, and get the “Boot Camp x64 is unsupported on this computer” when installing the drivers from a disc.
I tried everything I could Google to access the drivers on the disc and the only thing that actually worked was super simple. I found it here. I had to tweak the command lines to make it work for me though.
So, here is my tweaked version of the work around:
1. Boot into Windows and enter the disc you made during the bootcamp install with the supporting drivers on it.
2. Click start (or the windows icon in the lower left of your screen)
then go to “all programs”
then go to “accessories”
then right click on “command prompt” and choose “run as administrator”
the commands you want to enter are:
D: then press enter
cd drivers\apple then press enter
drivers\apple\bootcamp64.msi then press enter
That should do it for you.
At least I hope it does.
May the force be with you! The dark side of the force, that is… muahahahahah!
