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.

  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.

    Thanks for this addendum to the parent article(s). Very complete set.

    One observation: as of 2/2012, Bootcamp is up to v4, and the intervening updates apparently have to be installed in sequence. One way to do that is to download and install each, the other (arguably better since one gets other critical updates as well) is to keep running Apple Software Update until there are no more vital updates.

    Abbas – It’s best if you get networking going before you get this far. Otherwise you’ll need to put the Bootcamp update(s) on a CD or a USB drive and run them from there — and install the device drivers, too.
