    Hi, I have all the bootcamp drivers I think that I need loaded onto a flash drive. I am installing 64-BIT Windows Vista Ultimate through BootCamp with my April Issue( I think ) of the Imac (3.2ghz, 4gb ram, most recent box). My problem is I'm not sure which of the drivers I need.... I would just use my Mac OSX disk to do it automatically but for some reason Imacs bootcamp software does not support 64bit even though you can still load it and have it working.( I did it before, but like a year and a half ago, with a DIFFERENT set of drivers ) and now most of the drivers I choose aren't the 64bit version. Can anyone tell me JUST the name of the 64-bit Ethernet Driver or the one that lets you connect to the internet because from there I can navigate myself... im beginning to think maybe the drivers I have are missing that file.... if someone could help just with the name of the Bootcamp Ethernet drivers that would be fantastic.



    I have done this before... booted this same copy of Windows Vista Ultimate 64BIT so I know it works.


    THANKS

    i think it's Marvell Yukon yk60x64 something. i believe only the mac pros come with 64 bit vista support.

    Yes, it's the Yukon, and Jano, the OS X Install disc has drivers that are compatible.

    I did a Vista x64 install on my MBP, and it works fine.

    INSTALL THE OS X DISC DRIVERS FIRST! Most of them are Microsoft certified drivers and should work with 64-bit Vista.

    Indeed, and then after that run Windows Update as it'll sometimes have newer drivers.
