Guys, I need help!
I've successfull went through the boot-camp stages and installed win7 ultimate as secondary OS (Primary OS is Snow Leopard 10.6). anyways, I've excidently installed the boot-camp driver for the win 7 from the 10.5 Leopard CD. it all installed well but the trackpad wasn't working properly (right click and scrolling wouldn't work). So I've read that I need to upgrade to 3.0, but it wouldn't un-install or upgrade directly to 3.0, So I forced removed the boot-camp driver, including all the extensions on the add/remove programs and removed any field in the registery with boot camp mentioned. Now I'm pretty stuck, boot camp driver 2.0 wouldn't un-install and I the 3.0 Boot-Camp get error messages.
Other than re-installing the whole win7 OS, is there anything I can do?
I would also add that BEFORE you even think about installing Windows, be it though Boot Camp, Parallels or whatever... that you take the time to evaluate why you need Windows on your Mac in the first place.
Don't make installing Windows a top priority... especially when you don't even have a Mac yet. Take the time to learn OS X first.
I would wait at least a month before even considering a Windows install.
More often than not, you will be able to find software or other methods to achieve the result you were planning on using Windows to attain. This would negate the need for a Windows install period.
If you only need Windows for "one thing", and you already have a working Windows machine, then there is no need to install Windows on your Mac.
That "one thing" could potentially eat up a huge amount of space and resources on your Mac.
I just installed Windows 7 on my new MBP, Core i5, and I can't connect to my wireless network at home on the Windows partition. I installed all of the Bootcamp drivers from the OSX DVD. Everything works fine except for the wireless connection. My MBP, iPad and iphone as well as my HP laptop connect to my wireless network.
