    I installed Windows 7 64bit on my Macbook 13" (Aluminum, late 2008). Apprently this laptop doesn't actually support a 64bit Windows 7.

    So my question is can I use this link here:

    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5634?viewlocale=en_US

    And download a Windows 7 64bit driver for like the 2009 Macbook and use it on mine seeing as Apple doesn't supply a 64bit Windows Support Service for my MacBook model?

    I have the same laptop as you, and I'm actually running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit right now. I had to use command prompt to open the BootCamp.msi file that you downloaded on a flash drive for the drivers. I forgot exactly what I did, but if you google it, there's a lot out there about it.

    Glad to hear it works!

    So where can I find the driver I need?

    By the way, I should also mention I no longer have the OS X disc that came with my MacBook. My friend has one, but it came with another MacBook model (Mid 2009). Is that disc safe to use?
