    Can't Upgrade Bootcamp
    Hi all! I got a 24inch iMac (Meaning the old one)..I run win 7 on it..and i use also magic track pad and wireless keyboard ( the short one ) and i seem to have a problem with delete button-which there is none-. Some suggested to upgrade bootcamp..and though i tried to uprage it, i got these following problems...First i opened boot camp, pressing help button to see which version is it, and it did nothing. Then i downloaded a 3.2 update for bootcamp and it said i need to have 3.1 or greater...then i downloaded 3.1 and it said 3.0 or greater etc etc...

    Any help? Any solutions to this ?

    You're more than likely running Boot Camp 2.1 or 2.2. The only way to get Boot Camp 3.0 is to install Snow Leopard. Once Boot Camp 3.0 is installed, then you can upgrade to 3.1 and 3.2.

    I'm not sure what you're referring to by saying your keyboard has no delete button? Both the small and long keyboards have a delete button.

    ok, i checked and i got snow leopard 10.6.6 , and the bootcamp version is 3.0.2 . The thing is i cant update my Windows version as there is no update for the iMac ( or i didnt find one) . The updates in apple page are for windows OS and some macbook pro's.

    BootCamp 3.0 is on your Snow Leopard disc. Insert the disc into your machine while you'rebooted up into Windows to install the 3.0 drivers.

    The application BootCamp Assistant in OS X and the BootCamp driver package for Windows are 2 separate and distinct items.

    The latest version of BootCamp Assistant is 3.0.2, while BootCamp is at 3.2

    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    The update on the Apple page for BootCamp 3.2 (32-bit Windows) is something you download and install from there WHILE IN WINDOWS. Just do that from within Windows and you'll be fine. You install the drivers by inserting the SL disc into your Mac also while in Windows, as bobtomay indicated. It's actually very simple but perhaps counterintuitive ...

    Cheers

    Remember that you must be booted to Windows 7 before you can insert the Windows 7 DVD. When you do, the drivers should install automatically and you'll have a copy of the Boot Camp control panel item for Windows sitting in your System Tray (Notification Area). It looks like a small diamond.

    Once everything is installed, open the BC control panel from Windows and click on "check for updates". The latest Boot Camp updates will be downloaded and installed from Apple.
