    Bootcamp drivers for Vista?
    Hi,

    I'm running vista home premium on my iMAC using bootcamp partitions. However, there are some devices having driver problems. Is there anything available from bootcamp dedicated for vista or not?

    Ex: Airport + iSight are not working

    I dont think there is anything as far as drivers for bootcamp to run vista.

    Not yet, I'm guessing in a couple of weeks Mac will release Vista drivers. I hope it won't take until 10.5.

    I am running Vista on a Macbook and it seems to be running good.

    Airport and sound both working great. Though trying to use the trackpad without drivers is a pain, no right click or scrolling as well as the pointer kind has a mind of it own sometimes.

    My sound is working OK on Vista, but the video card is not functioning properly. I have something like 4 colors, and everything on the screen is pixels and smudges. My Mac Pro is new - bought it in December. It came with the NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT 256MB of GDDR2 SDRAM video card.

    I guess I'll try looking for the Vista driver on the NVIDIA GeForce website.

    What puzzles me is that I saw Vista running on Macs in the computer stores while I was looking to buy. It seemed to be running fine. Maybe they had a different video card. I'm not sure.

    kevin, if you only have 1GB of RAM, then Vista video won't work. I am having the same problem. Hopefully it will be fixed with an official drivers release. The XP drivers do work with Vista, it's just complicated.

    Ahh, thanks htdefiant. You've solved the mystery as I do only have 1 GB of RAM. I would like to upgrade the RAM in this machine. I chose not to upgrade through Apple because of the crazy prices they charge on memory. I do a lot of video editing which was the main reason I needed the Apple and I have to say that I'm thoroughly impressed with how well the Apple operating system as well as Apple software works. I've had next to no problems putting videos together, and it's so straight forward.

    I still need Windows because I've invested a ton of money into software over the years. Eventually I may not need Windows, but for now I still use it. I'd say I use Apple and Windows 50/50.

    How much memory is good enough for Vista? I'll bet it will speed up my video rendering too.
