How to install the Boot Camp 3.1 update

This very brief tutorial will show you how to install the 3.1 Boot Camp Update in Windows.

Please note: This guide was initially published back in 2010 and Boot Camp has changed significantly since then. This guide is only accurate if you’re using a much older version of OS X (Leopard, Snow Leopard era) and Boot Camp (v3).

  1. Make sure you’ve booted your Mac into Windows. From the Start menu select All Programs and then Apple Software Update
  2. Make sure there’s a check mark in the box labeled Boot Camp Update (version 3.1) and click the Install 1 Item button. Note: you can also install iTunes, QuickTime, Safari etc – but it’s not mandatory.
  3. The Apple Software Updater will now download the Boot Camp Update.
  4. The installation will take place right after the download has completed. You may notice that your screen flickers a few times during the installation – this is totally normal.

  6. Once the installation has completed, click the Yes button to complete the installation.
