Hi all! So I currently have a Macbook MC516LL/A running OS X El Capitan. I installed Windows 7 using Bootcamp and then used the Windows Media Creation Tool to upgrade to Windows 10. It worked and was able to run it but my trackpad wouldn't work. I used an external USB mouse to navigate and I opened my previously downloaded bootcamp drivers from my USB drive. I tried to run the bootcamp setup but it didn't work and said that I needed to be running Windows 7 in order to open the setup. I tried running it in compatibility mode but no luck at all. I reverted to Windows 7 and now i'm hoping someone can help me try and install the drivers for Windows 10 on my unsupported macbook so I can efficiently run Windows 10. Thank You.
