    Sorry if this has been answered before but I did a quick search around the forums and couldnt find anything... I also googled but all I found was that it can be done but not how to do it.

    So can someone please provide me with a how to (or at least point me to one) on getting the new Apple Wireless Keyboard working with Windows XP SP2 under bootcamp on a SR Macbook Pro

    I upgraded to Vista using a full version OEM home premium for $120. I gotta tell you it works great on my Mac especially with my BT keyboard and mighty mouse. If thats not an option I apologize for replying with a non useful answer.

    Have you tried pairing the keyboard in the Bluetooth Control Panel?

    I run Vista, XP and 2000 on a MBP under VMWare Fusion with 4gig ram, 2.6ghz 17" High Res Matt with 200 gig 7200 RPM drive.

    I use the wireless keyboard and mouse.

    I paired them in the Network Control Panel

    I made sure to pass all the settings through to VMware via the VMware Settings and Preferences Menus.

    Both the Keyboard and Mouse work flawlessly and wirelessly.

    I have no experience with bootcamp.
