    I'm thinking of getting a Mac keyboard for my Windows PC at the office.

    If I create a Boot Camp drivers CD at home on my Mac, is it possible to install it on the Windows PC? Will there be full functionality?

    Has anyone tried before?

    Do you just want drivers for keyboard or something? I don't get why you would want to do that? The drivers would, if anything, cripple the functionality of your computer by installing improper drivers.

    What are you trying to accomplish?

    I assume that the OP is looking to have the volume, brightness etc keys all function as they do in Boot Camp.

    That's what I want to do exactly.

    Also, I find my typing speed faster on the new keyboards. It really helps me save time.

    IF you could access the individual files on the OS X CD, then you might be able to find the software that does that. But, that could be hard to do, as it would be a guess and install method. If you were to install something wrong, like graphics drivers, you could cripple your system. But, it could potentially work if you install the right stuff.

    I'd try it on a non important computer first.

    you dont need to

    you dont need drivers for a keyboard and as for the vol. up ect they are probably mac specific unless say you want to use an apple cinema display i personally think it wouldn't work just get the keyboard and forget about the hardware controls anyway your display will have a button to do hat and s will the speakers.
