    I am having issues installing boot camp on my mbp 15 i7 it doesn't burn the software needed for windows 7 64bit ultimate, I go ahead and install the O.S (windows 7) and after install I put the mac os x 10.6 cd to install the software and it says something like my computer doesn't support the 64 bit operating system.

    Any help would be appreciate it.

    Thank you.

    Um, what?

    Maybe you installed the 32-bit version of Windows.

    1. Install Bootcamp drivers (32bit is fine)
    2. Use Apple Software update in windows to update. If your computer is supported you will get 64bit drivers.

    I don't see why my computer won't be supported, I have the latest model, i7 2010 unibody model. my friend has a 13 inch macbook pro and he is able to install 64 bit without any issues. I am running fusion VMware 3.1 right now and it seems to be fine but wish I was able to natively install windows.
