    So I just finished installing Windows 7 Professional 64bit via boot camp, but I had an issue when I put in the 10.6 disc to get the Drivers for everything. I'm running the 2.4Ghz Aluminum MacBook (not the pro). When I try to run the disc, it says that x64 is not supported on this machine. Am I boned? Or are there other options, because I really don't want to buy 32bit, because my school provides 64bit for free. I'm just looking for the drivers for the iSight, trackpad functions, and the keyboard functions (volume, iTunes, etc). Any help is much appreciated.

    Thanks!

    This brings me to my next problem, how the hell do I right click w/o the trackpad preferences....

    *goes to see if i can find an external mouse*



    EDIT:

    You sir, are my hero. If I had a cookie, I'd give it to you. Thanks!

    I tried to boot it in compatability mode like you had suggested (great idea :) ) However it stilll wont work for me on my late 08 iMac, so I'm going to try to download from apple but I have limited downloads :( So I was wondering if you had any other ideas?
