    Hi!

    Just wondering...maybe weird.
    I installed Windows 7 on a Mac Pro 09 and now I´m not sure if I really need the Boot Camp 3 drivers or not. It´s just installed for games and 3D Software. I don´t have an USB iSight, obviously, and don´t need the media function keys of the keyboard nor I use the Mighty Mouse. Also I don´t need iDisk access HFS+ access or Bonjour and what so ever. I mostly run OSX anyway.

    So, would it work if I just install the Chipset drivers, Audio, Ethernet and graphics card drivers if I find them?
    Or do the Boot Camp drivers have special stuff which I absolutely need?

    Thanks!

    I'd install the drivers for ethernet, sound etc, but always use the graphics card vendors drivers as they are light years ahead of Apples.

    OK, thanks! I noticed Windows did recognize most hardware directly tho, only had to install the Realtek HD Audio driver and need to find correct SATA driver.
