    Hey guys!
    I seem to have misplaced my Leopard disk so I tried to use the disk from my ex leopard machine to install the drivers in XP with no luck. Also, I found a torrent containing the supposed drivers for XP called bcXP.exe which when I run it, nothing happens. Does anybody have any advice for me?
    ive been trying to get this XP rig off the ground for so damn long and I have had absolutely NO luck.
    Ive been trying for months and reading and reading with no luck.
    Ive even tried using Vista and installing the drivers on that with no luck either. HELP!

    Search for a torrent called "setup.exe" it's about 300-400mb containing the drivers. Sorry, I don't have the link but I used it a month ago or so and that works perfectly for me (it's the official ones).

    You cannot apply the Boot Camp 2.1 update without first installing the drivers found on the OS X disc.

    In a Mac box
    SO you install the drivers from the OS X disc on the Mac prtition and then the 2.1 update for bootcamp will be available on Windows?

    Nope once you have installed windows just insert your OS X disk ( IN WINDOWS ), it'll auto run, then once they have installed you will then be able to run the apple updater in windows and install 2.1
