Installing Windows Server 2008 R2 on a Macbook Pro (using Bootcamp)

September 10, 2011

A couple of quick tips (or reminders for me) when installing Windows Server 2008 R2 on a Macbook Pro Bootcamp partition:

1. Follow the steps detailed in the Bootcamp Installation & Setup guide.
2. Have the Bootcamp Drivers for windows saved to a removable drive for immediate installation following the completion of the OS installation process.
3. If you forget to install the Bootcamp Drivers for windows on the initial login you will need a USB keyboard to log into windows.
4. If you need to connect to a wireless network ensure that you enable the windows feature “Wireless LAN Service”

Thanks it!
