Hi Guys

I'm trying to get Windows 7 64Bit on my iMac 27" for ASP.NET Development.

This Guide says I need to upgrade my BootCamp to 3.1 through the Apple Menu Software Update.

However when I go there .. it says no Updates are available and yet my BootCamp is still at version 3.0.2 !!

How do I upgrade my BootCamp to 3.1 on my iMac ?

I would greatly appreciate any help.

Thank You.

Bootcamp is now at 3.2. Below is a link to the standalone version of the updater for Windows 7 64bit.

Hmm I'm confused. I thought BootCamp is a Mac program that runs on a Mac and allows Windows to be installed !!

The bootCamp assistant runs in OSX and partitions the disc. The bootcamp software you're talking about runs in Windows.

I posted a full install guide, including a way to avoid the black screen issue on your previous bootcamp thread:
