    Hey guys;

    Ok, so I have 2 MBP's one has a broken superdrive. We installed SL and windows 7 via USB. Only problem is that Windows cant read the partition with the boot camp drivers. I tried the instructions in this thread:

    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=892725

    But the partitions as in the instructions don't appear. I put that command and I just get /dev/disk4 and that's it.

    Is there any other way to extract these drivers straight from the SL disc?

    thanks in advanced.

    Someone mentioned recently that Toast was able to pull them off easily. You could try their trial...

    I have toast 9, either I'm an idiot using the software or the feature to be able to do this is in 10 because I got nowhere with Toast 9. I'll try the trial of 10 see how it goes...

    Any Windows machine can read the drivers. All you have to do is copy them to a stick.
