Boot Camp support for Windows 7 ends


It seems that Apple is cleaning and is that in the new MacBook Pro models in addition to the MacBook Air, the support of Boot Camp for Windows 7 has come to an end. When we talk about MacBook Air models, we mean those that have recently been released and when we refer to the MacBook Pro we do so by looking at the 13-inch model that has also recently been renewed.

This information can be found in the Apple Boot Camp support document. In these new laptops we can only run Windows 8 or later, so it will be impossible to install a virtual machine with Windows 7.

If you are thinking of buying one of the new laptops presented by Apple, you should be aware that if you plan to do a dual boot with Boot Camp to have Windows installed on the Mac, or create a virtual machine with any program for this purpose, You will only be able to install Windows 8 or later. 


These new laptop models not supported in Boot Camp for Windows 7 join the 2013 Mac Pro which also does not have support for the indicated system. The 2014 MacBook Air and 2014 MacBook Pro were the last Apple notebooks to support Windows 7.

It's no surprise that Apple has chosen to remove support for Windows 7, given its age. It should be remembered that this system was made available to everyone for the first time in 2009 and was followed by Windows 8 in 2012. However, despite being six years old, Windows 7 is still the most widely used operating system.
