    Upgraded to win 7 without updating bootcamp
    Hello all,

    I have an intel iMac with Leopard (NOT Snow) and I upgraded my Bootcamp Win xp install to Win 7. I found out after the fact that there is a Bootcamp 3.1 that, if I understand correctly, was supposed to be installed before the Windows upgrade. The Win 7 upgrade install went fine and seems to be working well, but it doesn't show the bootcamp icon or options that were available under XP. Can I just install the boot camp update now? Do I need to? Any help will be much appreciated. Cheers.

    It is not an upgrade to BootCamp Assistant on the OS X side.

    BootCamp 3.1 is a windows driver package. It is an executable.

    It should be installed from within Windows after windows is installed.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Actually, I should have mentioned I did not upgrade to Bootcamp 3.0 either. So what ever version of bootcamp came with my Leopard DVD, that was the version I was at before upgrading to Win 7

    If it is working well don't do anything.

    Depending on what version the Leopard install disc was, it is 2.x, x for something. Here is a list of updated drivers etc for Boot Camp 2.
