Hey everyone,

I am looking into installing Windows 7 on boot camp, only thing stopping me now is the driver issue. Now I know that its simple when you have your os x installation discs, except i dont Not that I have an illegal copy! I just left my installation discs at work and, well I don't think its possible for me to get back and claim them lol.

Is there anywhere you can download the same sort of utilities that are on the installation disc? Or any other possible way of getting the drivers?

I heard its only really the sound driver that you need? But is there anything else I need? I'd rather I do it and it be perfect than do it and having windows 7 half work half not lol.

Many Thanks,
Stu

You need the disk, unfortunately - but it's probably worth the $30 to get a new copy of Snow Leopard for them. In addition to sound, the disk has video drivers, ethernet/networking adapters, bluetooth, a whole bunch of things. If it's a legally registered copy, you can also try calling Apple and perhaps they will send you a disk.

Cheers
