Is there any way this can work? I have a MacBook Air (late 2012) running win7 bootcamp that needs to dual display on 2x 27'' Cinema displays. Right now I have one plugged into the thunderbolt port. I was thinking there might be a usb 3 adapter that I can use for the 2nd display. Any ideas?

Thunderbolt may be the problem. Windows lacks official support for Thunderbolt, and Apple has added limited support in Boot Camp 5. So if you want to run Thunderbolt devices, you have to make sure you have Boot Camp 5 drivers, and you must plug the device in BEFORE booting Windows. Have you tried that?

I have a series of stories about Thunderbolt and Windows booting Macs at Boot Camp 5 Tips and Reports.

A Thunderbolt-to-USB3 adapter may have the same problems.

Thanks for the reply. I actually have two Cinema display available so I'm not running into the thunderbolt issue. I guess this isn't really a bootcamp question... just wondering what the best way to hook up two Cinema Displays to a MacBook Air.
