Hi, I am new to the forums and I just have a few questions that I would like anwsered.

I have a 15" mac book pro with OS X on it. I have boot camped it before with the 15" installation disc. My girlfriend has a 13" macbook pro can I use her OS X installation disc for bootcamp or are the drivers completely different?

Obviously I do not have my installation disc on me.

Thank you for any reply's =]

I suspect it will probably not work because of the different hardware, but you can certainly give it a try.

I think your right. Do you know of anywhere I can download the drivers with out the disc?

Apple does not make the drivers available for download except from the Boot Camp assistant for certain Mac models. Those models are the ones which can only run Windows 7.

Unless you have a 2011 MBP, the easiest way is to buy a retail copy of Snow Leopard from Apple on line for $29.99. That contains the drivers you need.
