I just upgraded my old 4 Core Mac Pro to 8 core and a new graphics card with more ram. When I run Boot Camp Assistant to partition my drive I am asked if I want to download the Windows CD for this MAC. Not having the original CD (But I did just upgrade to Snow Leopard and have that CD if it will do) I try to download the Win CD, but always get a failure that the software is not available for this computer.

Any help or advice greatly appreciated
Thank you

The Boot Camp assistant thinks you have a new machine and wants you to download the driver disk image. Just ignore the message and use your Snow Leopard DVD instead. Once Windows is installed, run Apple software update from within Windows and download the latest version of Boot Camp and drivers.
