    I've installed Windows 7 64 Bit. I tried installing Boot Camp from the Leopard DVD and it gets to the part where its trying to run the service KeyAgent but it fails. This is the message I get.

    "Service 'KeyAgent' (KeyAgent) failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services."

    I've tried running it in compatibility mode for Vista and made sure to have it set as run as Administrator. I also download BootCamp 2.1 for Windows Vista 64 but it wont even start. I also did the Compatibility mode and administrator for it.

    Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.
    Macbook Pro 2.2Ghz, 200GB HDD, 4GB RAM, Latest version of Leopard.

    I copied the contents of the Boot Camp driver DVD to the HD, and executed all driver installers manually. Check for the 64 bits ones!
    Worked for the most part for me. ;)

    How do I know which ones are 64 bit? I dont see anything in my boot camp folder that says anything about 64bit.

    I found the problem and a solution for it. Apparently I have an early version of the Leopard disk that doesnt have any 64 bit drivers. Thats why it wasnt working. I was able to download the correct Boot Camp Install files that worked like a charm. Even the 2.1 update worked. Thanks again for anyone who looked at or responded.

    I'm having the same problem, and really can't find those drivers anywhere. How did you manage to get them?

    Just be sure to get the Realtek drivers (for sound) from their site (the HD audio codec one).

    When I tryed to put my Leopard disc in on Win 7 32 bit, it doesnt do anything for a long time, then gave me an error. I've downloaded the Audio and graphics drivers, but I need the Control Panel so that it wont start up to Windows every time! Frustration!:mad: Where can I download that?

    you can change the boot up from osx just go to startup disk and . the drivers install fine you just have to run them as admin there is a thread if you search on how to do it takes like 5 minutes to get all the drivers installed and they work like a charm for me on win 7 64
