    I've installed Windows 7 64x on my Macbook, now when I insert the Mac OS X disc that came with my Macbook I can install the Bootcamp64 file but when I insert the Snow Leopard disk to install Bootcamp 3.0 I can't install the Bootcamp64 or the 32 bit Bootcamp file. I really want the 3.0 version so that I can have the read capability for the Mac partition in Windows.
    When I try to install the Bootcamp64 it comes up saying "This installation requires elevated privilages. Launch the installer through setup.exe"
    When I run it through setup.exe however it comes up with the message saying that it Bootcamp64 is unsupported on this model. The same message would come up when I use the Leopard disks but I was able to bypass this by instaling it through the Bootcamp64 file found in the Apple drivers folder.

    Can someone help me out here I need to get Bootcamp 3.0 installed, I think there are some 3rd party apps that can give you HTFS read capability but I don't want use those, I've looked at some they are horrible so don't suggest it!!

    Also I'm not a 64x fanatic, I'm using Windows64x because you need it to use 4GB ram.:rolleyes:

    I have Windows 7 32 bit on my 15" UMBP with 4 GB of RAM running fine. Why do you need 64 bit?

    It will still run fine but it wont use the full 4GB
    When your next on Windows 7 go into the System section in Control panel, I'm guessing it doesn't say 4GB but something like 3GB?
