    How many 2009 MBP drivers for XP would work on an Early 2011 13"?

    I know there are just general drivers for the Broadcom card and the iGPU obviously, but I'm wondering how many old BootCamp drivers from the 2009s actually work with the 2011 hardware.

    What's the last year of MacBook Pros with native XP drivers, or at least enough to be usable?

    I have an Early 2011 13" MBP. Last of the Snow Leopard era, and technically last that can run a BootCamp version capable of running XP. What I'm wondering is if the cutoff is the 2009s, 2010s, or 2011s.
