    Bootcamp / Windows 7 (64 bit)
    Hi everyone I tried using bootcamp on my 2011 macbook pro 13" with windows 7 home edition (64 bit). I followed the instructions perfectly and every time the internet drivers wont work. I even brought it to best buys geek squad to see if they could fix it and they couldn't get it . I tried to install it again but still after I finished was unable to access the internet. If anyone has some advice that would be greatly appreciated its been driving me crazy. Thanks!

    Did you download the driver image from Apple as directed by the Boot Camp Assistant and burn it to a CD or thumb drive? Without the proper Apple supplied drivers the internet will not work, and you may have other difficulties such as video, sound, and blue tooth.

    Use that in lieu of the Snow Leopard DVD. Your MBP is too new and requires the driver download from Apple. Let us know how it went.
