After I finished downloading Windows, I have to install BootCamp Drivers for Windows. It says I need to:
To install the Boot Camp drivers:
1 Eject the Windows installation disc.
a Go to My Computer.
b Select the optical drive (D.
c Click “Eject this disk” in the System Tasks list.
2 Insert the Mac OS X disc.
If the installer doesn’t start automatically, browse the disc using Windows Explorer and
double-click the setup.exe file in the Boot Camp directory

However, I don't have a OS X Lion install disc because Lion was already installed on the Mac when I got it.

So, how could I finish the installation of Bootcamp even when I don't have an install disc?
* I got a torrent of OS X Lion and got the iso. file and burned it to a DVD with Disk Utility. But, I can't open up the Setup.exe file from the burned DVD in Windows 7 (Bootcamp).

You were doing fine until you mentioned that you illegally downloaded a copy of Lion. Lion does not contain drivers for Windows so you may as well destroy that illegal copy.

How about the copy of Windows you downloaded? Where did you download that from?

Wonder if there will be a response Charlie?

The mind boggles doesn't it?

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
