    Lost driver dvd XP!?
    Hi i was planning to install XP on my Macbook (13.3 inch 2.0 GHz C2D 2gb ram, late 2008 unibody) I know that after installing xp on my boot camp partition I will need to use the OS X dvd that came with my computer for drivers (in order for things like the isight camera to work)

    Can i download these drivers anywhere, or can i buy snow leopard (i have leopard now) to get the drivers

    thanks in advance

    p.s.- i have been searching on the web and have found this link on apple's website, it this what i need?

    Yep, that's what you need.

    Well, sort of - the Boot Camp software needs to be installed in Windows first in order to use that upgrade.

    So, yes, you'll need your system disc or a Snow Leopard disc to install the drivers first.

    That is the case for 3.1.

    With 2.1 you can install without the previous version, at least per the note there.
    It's been over a year now, but pretty sure I have done it also.

    Note: This download contains complete copies of Boot Camp Windows XP Drivers (version 2.1). If you have Boot Camp drivers already installed, it will update them. If you do not have any Boot Camp drivers installed, it will install version 2.1 drivers onto your already installed Windows OS.
    But, if you haven't upgraded to SL, I'd recommend that also. $25-$30 and have 10.6 plus the latest Bootcamp drivers.

    OK, thanks - did not know that.

    The drivers for apple mac hardware for Windows XP or later are on the Mac OS X DVD.
    To install them, boot into Windows, insert the Mac OS X DVD and let it autorun and then follow the wizard to install the drivers.
