Where'd that Bluetooth go from my Mac Pro?
wonder if anybody has experienced this loss of Bluetooth? I am on this mac pro:
on which I installed Vista, and now Windows 7.
A while back, I became unable to boot in Mac at all (that wasn't a problem, because I do all my work in Windows). But I now noticed that my Bluetooth capability has also disappeared from the machine. There is no mention of it anywhere that I can find in Device Manager or other places one might see a mis-firing device (and Tom's Hardware PC Wizard can't find anything resembling Bluetooth on my machine.)
When I looked to see if Boot Camp could do anything about this, I noticed neither do I have Boot Camp in Control Panels (or anywhere else). I currently cannot boot into Mac OS X, and neither can I install any Mac OS afresh. I don't mind not having OS X on the machine, but it would be great to get my Bluetooth working again. I wonder does anyone have any idea how to proceed?
thanks in advance

thanks for that. Posted the answer over there, but for anyone who stumbles across here:
So, this problem is fixable, it appears. First go here to get the right drivers etc (bootcamp installer)
