I have installed windows 7 64-bit on my MBP. The problem I am having is when I go to install the drivers by inserting my snow leopard disc and the bootcamp assistant does not show up. Instead it gives me two options. One is to install snow leopard on my macbook air, which I dont have, and the other option was to reinstall a DVD something I forget. Any ideas as to why this is happening and how I can fix it.
Thanks
Cody

Have you tried running the BC driver installation program manually? You should be able to double click on the executable file while in Windows and start the installation manually. Just bring up the DVD in Explorer, find the correct EXE file and double click on it.

Regards.
