    Could anyone send me a link to/the Apple keyboard driver from bootcamp 1.2?

    To check file name and location please do the following:

    1. Right-click 'My Computer' icon (not shortcut)
    2. Select 'Manage'
    3. Goto Device manager and expand the list
    4. Select Keyboard device and double-click for properties
    5. Select 'Driver' tab and determine driver name and location on hard disk...

    *It should show as a XYZ.inf file (where XYZ is whatever apple named it)

    Whatever driver is in the copy of BootCamp 1.2 that i've got won't install properly, as i'm still showing as having the Microsoft-distributed driver from 2001..

    thanks in advance! :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Have tried, but i then encounter a different problem... My logic says the keyboard problem is easier to solve, since even standard PC users often get problems with XP and restarts & shutdowns.... Is there a way to check if the download i have of Bootcamp 1.2 is corrupted?

    BTW i solved this in the end....

    It seems that the install cd was not 'imposing' it's keyboard driver in the Regional Settings section of control panel. I went in there, selected the Mac driver and did it manually, and it's been working ever since hehehe..

    As i said before, BootCamp 1.3 doesnt have this problem for me - it just wont restart from windows back into windows.. I'll leave it for now - i go with what works.

    that'll do for me!

    I know that BC 1.3 won't let you hold the option key down to re-select Windows after a Windows restart, but you can always set the Startup Disk preference in the Windows control panel if you expect to restart into Windows for a while... not a solution, I know.

    Beyond the annoying bluetooth keyboard issue and this, BC 1.3 has been good for me.
