    So I have a MacBook Pro 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, and run on 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard). I partitionned my hard drive with BootCamp (3.0.4) and installed Windows 7 32 bits (with service pack 1) on it. Everything is fine up to this point. Though when I install my apple support softwares and drivers (from my install DVD) it works and at 1 point it gives me the BSOD and I get about the following message :
    "Disable BIOS shadowing and Caching".
    I've tried to run Win 7 in safe mode and modify/delete some .sys files
    like shown on this thread :

    Yet, I can't get it to work and I've ran out of solution. Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    It has nothing to do with Snow Leopard. Boot Camp drivers are for Windows regardless of which OS X you have.

    Thanks a lot! I'm trying this right away!

    ----------

    Last Quick Question;
    Should I uninstall BootCamp 3.0 on my Mac Partition before installing 4.0 on my Windows Partition?

    No, you can't uninstall it anyway.

    So when I unzip BootCamp 4.0, I get the same BSOD with the notification to disable BIOS shadowing and caching... I'm going to try the safe mode strategy and modify/delete AppleMTN AppleHTS...
    Though, if you have any other suggestions, I would appreciate. Thanks again

    I haven't figure it out entirely yet but it seems it has something to do with my windows 7 version. I downloaded (legitimate version) the service pack 1 and debug... I'll repost when I solve my problem entirely

    Problem Solved. Compatibility problems with the Windows 7 Debug/Checked Build. Downloaded Windows 7 Professional 32 bits. Everything works fine. Thanks for help.

    You'll be better off with the normal version anyway. The Debug/Checked version will be slower as it's running in debug mode. Only useful if you're doing low level development for things such as drivers.
