Hey guys. I currently have windows XP installed through bootcamp but want to change it it windows Vista. I have tried this once before but the wireless networking (I have a mid 2008 MBP) doesnt work and I belive its an issue with the installed drivers or something, can someone please tell me how I go about installing correct drivers? It works great via XP.
QUOTE Thanks

I'm not sure what you've done or want to do? It sounds like you upgraded your Windows XP Boot Camp installation to Vista or want to upgrade it to Vista and am having problems connecting to the net?

Regards.

Yes, that is correct. I have currently reverted back to XP because I cannot connect to the internet on Vista.

If it was Vista 64 the Leopard disc will not have all the drivers - should be there for Vista 32, however. You should be sure you have the latest version of boot camp. Also, you can search the forum for posts on how to download the 64-bit drivers.

cheers
