I am trying to install bootcamp and windows. I have tried 3 times so far. I only get to the windows support software download step and it runs and runs. I have a wireless card (not as fast as DSL or cable) but should it take hours and hours?

I have tried to direct it to an external drive and a thumb drive to see if that makes a difference.

I bought an OEM system builder pack for windows but have not gotten anywhere near that far. Have not even begun the partition build.

Suggestions?
QUOTE Thanks
