    Bootcamp, Vista, Drivers, and Macbook Pro

    Ok, I am still on stuck on Tiger, but I have an install of Vista Ultimate using bootcamp on my computer. Do I burn a drivers cd using the drivers from bootcamp 1.4? I made my partition using bootcamp 1.2. Also, is there a specific process to installing drivers on Vista. If so, can someone link me to instructions or try and guide me through it. Thank you!

    Yes burn a drivers cd or put it on a USB thumbdrive. There are tons of info both in MR, and a quick google search. For example.

    Then once you installed the drivers, it can be auto-updated within windows.

    Also, if you must have windows, get xp, not vista.

    alright, so when i make the drivers cd, do i need to manually install all the drivers, or does it automatically recognize it... i only have a vista full copy, so I can't use XP :( ... if i have to manually install it, can someone fill me in on how? i'm not good with windows... i just need it for work
