Hi all.
I thought, at the time of purchase, this would be the ideal solution for me. I have an eleven inch Macbook Air, and so I'm limited on how many peripherals I can connect. So, I purchased a Thunderbolt dock to offset this challenge. It works fine under Mac OS, but will not work under Windows 7 on my Bootcamp partition. I plugged it in while running Windows, with no results, so switched to Mac OS and it works great. However, for the skae of my employer, I must run Windows. When I plug the device in under Windows, I got the error that the hardware had not been installed properly. I rebooted, and tried again. Now, in the System Tray, I have an eject Hardware option, with the Thunderbolt Doc now as an option to eject. However, even when plugging in a USB keyboard, Windows doesn't appear to recognize that it's there. I also tried an external hard drive. I can't find it under device manager to uninstall the driver, and there doesn't seem to be much on Google regarding the subject. So, does anyone else happen to know what I can do to fix this issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
