Updating nvidia driver boot camp

Even if I have to miss out on new content while I save up for a separate Windows PC, I'd rather be able to use my Oculus in the meantime.

Hello all, I have this very annoying problem while installing Windows on my MBA 11 (Mid-2012).

I know that when I've had driver issues with my (admittedly much older) Mac Book the solution has been to use the Leopard/Snow Leopard install disk as there are drivers for a number of the components included there.

According to the Apple site, it looks like Snow Leopard has the drivers on the install disk.

I am incredibly frustrated at this turn of events as not only has this put an iron wall on my personal development projects but has turned my perfectly working Oculus into a brick incapable of running anything.

I know Oculus never intended to support Mac in the first place, but Boot Camp is essentially the same as native Windows except the inability to easily change/upgrade the graphics card.

I've installed the Windows 7 RC 64-bit edition under boot camp, but I'm have zero luck getting the 3D acceleration working.

I've installed all the Mac drivers (including the 64bit Nvidia ones on the OSX install cd), I've also run the windows update and I still am not getting the full aero desktop.


You will get better battery life if you use the drivers from Boot Camp 3.0 on the Snow Leopard disk.If you've followed our guide to install Windows 10 on a Mac then you probably opted for the Boot Camp option.While it hasn't been officially supported, Apple is updating its Boot Camp tool this week to provide Windows 10 support for 64-bit Macs.I run Windows XP on occasion on my i Mac early 2009 (20").


Lately I have been thinking of trying to update my n Vidia drivers as it has been hinted that it could solve some of the problems I've been having.

The latest version is 3.2; if you have an older version, install all of the updates up through version 3.2.
