Windows 7 - G4TW on Bootcamp. [SOLVED]

Post by AlwaysSimming on Wed 17 Dec 2014, 02:56

Trying to install Windows 7 but my bootcamp installer is not recognizing the disc any suggestions? 

Also, the activator that comes with the .iso will that work on other versions as well? Reason I ask is because I have another copy which is a legit version it is just I do not have a product key for it any more. I lost it. Sad

Hello,


Did you download the one that says "Windows 7 All Editions x64 and x86", here?
http://games4theworld.org/downloads



Because that's the "newer" one, and it is bootable. Unlike the older version, which wasn't bootable. And you did configure your BIOS on the Mac computer to boot from the disc drive too ? 

As for the activation, please see this thread here, which (probably) describes the easiest possible activation of Windows 7:

Good luck.

Why wouldn't Windows 7 download ? Have you actually tried clicking on the white square, on the left of the download name ? That magnet link should then open "directly" in your torrent client.

But it's good to hear that RemoveWAT works fine for you. Can we consider this solved, or should I leave the topic open ?

Yes, I tried it again, and if I click on the white square directly on the left of the download name, then the magnet link opens directly in my uTorrent. If you want any other download from G4TW, you should try that method too. Smile  


Problem solved, topic closed.
