I put the Apple Leopard DVD in with the drivers on it and it installed some of the drivers, but I got this error message about 2 or 3 times.
"Service key agent failed to start. Verify that you have sifficient privalges to start system services." with 3 options, Ignore, Abort, Retry.
Does anyone have any idea how to fix this????
This is on a Macbook Pro by the way

64-bit versions of Vista are not currently supported by Boot Camp, unfortunately.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Yea they are actually...Apple released drivers for it in Jan. I've also read of people successfully installing them.

Really? First I've heard of it. A cursory search of Apple's support site yields no mention of updated drivers. Link please?

EDIT: Found this article. Apparently this for for late 2007 and 2008 Mac Pros only, which would explain the problems you're having with your MacBook Pro.

cwa is correct, the 64-bit drivers are only for the Mac Pros.

Some people have tried to use them for the coinciding parts in the other models, but there are still a few devices that do not have 64-bit drivers, not to mention the fact that it takes quite a bit of tinkering to get the Mac Pro drivers working on the other machines.

AFAIK, it's the same deal. 64-bit drivers just haven't been written for all the different drivers for the entire Intel line-up. It sounds like support is limited to the latest generation of Mac Pros.
