    Cool. Make sure you run the Apple Software Update (within Windows) to get your drivers up to date and ensure you've got the latest and greatest.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Bootcamp
    I am new to Mac, Used windows for many years, had to try Mac, bought a Mac Mini 2012, gets confusing to an old timer, but am slowly catching on, love it. I am in the process of installing Boot Camp, at this point it is downloading the Windows support software has been downloading all night and seem to have a long ways to go. How long should it take? I have 8 G ram 500HD i5 Intel, just want to make sure I am on the right track, Thanks,
    Jim

    If you have a broadband connection (cable, DSL, etc) and it's within the normal range of bandwidth for such connections (3Mb-25Mb), then no, this is not normal. It should download in less than an hour.

    I would be looking to restart the process.

    Last week, I got a MacBook Pro and Windows 8.1.
    The Boot Camp process did not go smoothly. Apple Support was great, but they didn't know the answer to my issue for some time.
    Eventually, they determined that Boot Camp partitioning can't work if the Hard Drive has Firevault encryption enabled.

    So, don't try it unless you don't have Firevault enabled! Especially if you have a new MacBook (default for MacBook) but obviously for any Mac, you should format the HD and start over, if you have enabled Firevault. If you haven't touched a thing, then read the dialog boxes carefully when installing OS-X and uncheck Firevault.
