    Hi I recently got a Macbook Pro and decided to put windows on it. The installation went fine I formatted it with FAT, and now I have to install the drivers. Since I dont have a CD I downloaded the 2.1 BC Drivers from the apple website and put it into my windows, but now when I got to open the drivers in windows it simply does nothing no matter what I try. Did I do something wrong or did I simply forget something, thanks in advance

    What you downloaded was an updater only, it requires the drivers to already be installed.

    The only legitimate source of the drivers is on a Mac OS X install disc. If you don't have a disc, you have two options: 1) Call Apple Customer service and they will provide a set for a fee or 2) get the Boot Camp 3.x drivers on a $29 Snow Leopard disc.
