Just got a Apple MacBook Pro - Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz - 13.3? - 4 GB Ram - 250 GB HDD. i clicked on boot camp then it asked to download windows files or said i already have. i picked already had thinking it meant the windows 7 x64 dvd. i then made the windows 7 partition 50gb and the remainder was SL. after installing windows 7 x64 windows started up. i then installed the boot camp drivers off the SL dvd and i think that version was 2.1. after installing them i then updated boot camp from 2.1 to 3.0 to 3.1 then 3.2. after this my video card which is a NVIDIA 320 showed up as a standard VGA and i was missing my SM Bus and Coprocesser driver. i read something about getting the drivers from here to fix it DBoot Camp\Drivers\NVidia\NVidiaChipset.exe (D meaning your dvd drive) but i didn't see that file on there. i saw version on there for every OS but windows 7 x64. not sure how to fix this can someone help me in what i am doing wrong. i was going to just delete the windows partition again and start over.
so i started over and reinstalled windows 7 x64 again. i was able to get the video card driver for the 320 NVidia of NVidia's website. so now my video is working but now its saying i have 3 missing drivers. Bluetooth, Coprocessor and SM Bus... i have tried everything to get these drives install. tried everything i have found online but can't get it working. this was the last one i tried here: http://realitypod.com/2010/09/solved...sm-bus-driver/ but the problem is on my Snow Leopard Retail 10.6 disc i don't see this file "DBoot Camp\Drivers\NVidia\NVidiaChipset64.exe" tried going to the vista64 folder on the disc for SM Bus and it wouldn't install anything.

please help

Thanks!

Welcome to Mac-Forums,

Have you tried Windows Update located in Start > All Programs > Windows Update

That may have the drivers for you to download in there.

Post back the results

Cheers

why are you using the retail snow leopard disc? have you got your original install discs? because i know for sure that the original discs have these drivers: i have the same computer.

Its not my laptop its a friends that asked me to dual boot it for her. She didnt give me any disc. So i downloaded boot camp 2.1-3.2 and used snow leopard. Then got the video card drive off nvidia's website. What disc is the drivers on could u tell me a name so i can ask her to give it to me.

Thanks!
