    Question Windows 7 issues
    Hello,

    For work purposes I have been forced to install Windows 7 Ultimate with Bootcamp. Everything has worked smoothly till I'm to install the drivers.

    Now, Windows 7 looks 'fine' however I want my eject button and other MacBook Pro features to work (and for the 'correct' drivers to be operating my hardware).

    All tutorials have discussed putting in my Mac Install CD 1 and running Bootcamp.exe. However, Windows 7 doesn't see the CD so I booted back into Mac OS X to check the CD but I couldn't find any .exe.

    Can someone point me in the right direction? I'm a little lost. I haven't used Windows for years so my experience is limited . I downloaded Bootcamp 3.1 (from Apple) but it's telling me to installed Bootcamp 3 which I can't find.

    Thanks in advance for any assistance!

    If they are not on one of the install disk you should be able to download them from apples website.

    Yes, it is best to run an antivirus in bootcamp, i also run antivirus in Parallels with my virtual machines.

    I used my Snow leopard install disk and had no issues. The OSX disk may not have autorun so you may have to look for it in my computer and click the optical drive to install. Once installed Boot Camp will want to update, let it update there are Windows 7 updates. All of my keyboard shortcuts work including eject and even the trackpad.
