    Hi everyone,

    I have a bit of a problem!
    I have a MacBook with Leopard installed (yes, it is definitely Leopard).
    I could not find Boot Camp in my Utilities folder anywhere, so I researched and read that you could install it separately from the OS X Install Disc 1. Awesome.
    Problem is, the BootCamp.pkg doesn't exist on my install disc(s), either.
    What the?
    Everything else on the disc implies/verifies that the version is Leopard... but there's no BootCamp in sight.

    Any other way of running Boot Camp?? Or do I have to seek out a Mac Store?

    Thanks in advance!

    Nicola

    Is it definitely a MacBook? :p

    There's a program... I forget what it's called. You can see the contents of disks like that... did you run it to find out that it wasn't on your disk?

    Hi guys,

    Have tried Spotlight. 'Boot Camp' or 'Bootcamp' yield no results.

    I can't find it under Applications/Utilities.

    Nor anywhere on the OS X Installation Discs that came with my MacBook.

    I definitely have Leopard (the installation Discs have files called 'Welcome to Leopard' etc). v10.5.4.

    Any other solutions?

    Solution

    In case anyone else has this random problem, I found a solution.

    Used the program 'Pacifist' to break down the contents of the Operating System installer .pkg, it contained BootCamp.pkg and I installed it from there.

    Easy when you know what to do.
