    Just installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit on my Macbook Pro and the drivers wont load. Is the 64 bit not supported?

    What Mac OS X version do you use and what Boot Camp version do you have?

    Do you want to install the BC drivers via the Mac OS X DVD?

    And yes, Windows 7 64-bit is supported, unless you have a Core Duo MBP.

    My Mac OS X version is 10.6.4 and my boot camp version is 3.0.2 (314)

    And yeah when I put the Mac OS X CD in the drive it give me two options. One is to Remote Install Mac OS X and two is DVD or CD Sharing, and none of them load the drivers.

    My Computer is a Macbook Pro with 4gb of RAM

    Try downloading the drivers from Apple's website.

    http://www.apple.com/support/bootcamp/

    Download the 3.0 drivers first and then install the 3.1 drivers afterwards. The 3.1 Boot Camp drivers are the ones that officially support Windows 7.

    As they are .exe files (Windows executables), use Windows to download and execute them.

    Thats what I thought, and after I install that, I'll be able to install the drivers?

    Setup.exe actually supports a shorter list than that.

    • MacBook Pro (15-inch, Early 2008) and later
    • MacBook Pro (17-inch, Early 2008) and later
    • Mac Pro (Early 2008) and later
    • iMac (21.5 inch, Late 2009)
    • iMac (27-inch, Late 2009)
    • iMac (27-inch, Quad Core, Late 2009)
    • MacBook (13-inch, Late 2009) and later
    • Mac mini (Mid 2010)

    On anything else you need to force the install of BootCamp64.msi
