    1) Which disc do I install the drivers from? My iMac came with 2 discs (the instructions just say to insert OS X disc) :confused:

    2) How do I know if I need the Boot Camp 2.1 update? The update is dated April 24, but I got my iMac in July :confused::confused:


    Thanks!

    2) Yes download the correct one and install it.

    1. Disk 1

    2. I'd just download and install it. It doesn't hurt.

    OK, I just finished installing Windows. I saw Apple Software Update in the start menu, so I clicked that and all it found was Boot Camp update 2.1.1 (like 1.99MB)so I installed it figuring that meant I already had 2.1. Then after I restarted, it found 2.1, and I'm installing that now. I hope that doesn't screw anything up, doing it in that order :(

    Oh boy, now everything on the screen has that big goofy look like it did before the graphics driver was installed :eek:


    Ahhh...display resolution needed to be changed!




    Thanks, everyone!

    Thanks again; it was just the display resolution!
