If you're curious, you might have installed Windows 7 on your Intel Mac and noticed that Boot Camp Assistant refuses to install showing error code 2229. This error occurs because the assistant is not intended to install only on versions of Windows less than or equal to Windows Vista. It is possible to solve this problem by performing a manipulation that only advanced users should attempt. This manipulation is explained later in this post.


Preparation


To solve the problem, you will need:

* Mac OS X Leopard installation CD
* of an MSI file editor like Orca (it's the one I use in the following) downloadable here.

Handling

Now follow these steps:

1. After booting into Windows 7, copy the contents of the "Boot Camp" folder from the Mac OS X Leopard installation DVD to a hard drive accessible by Windows.
2. In the MSI file editor that you will have downloaded and installed, open the "BootCamp.msi" file (or "BootCamp64.msi" if you have installed the 64-bit version of Windows 7) located in the "Drivers/ Apple".
3. In the left column called "Tables", select the "LaunchCondition" table and delete it by choosing "Drop Table..." in the contextual menu or in the "Tables" menu.
4. Save the MSI file.
5. Run the installation again and follow the wizard's instructions.
