    I have a late-2011 iMac, A1311.

    My need to run 32-bit windows is not up for debate.

    I have Windows 7 pro 32 up and running, but lack the drivers to get wireless, gigabit, SD-card, etc., up and working. So far, only the ATI driver for video.

    Here's the rub. Bootcamp assistant for Bootcamp 5 only gives me 64 bit drivers. The only way to get 32 bit drivers (talking to apple support) is to reformat the computer, start over with Lion, get windows right, and then re-up back to 10.8.3. Really?

    I've downloaded driver pack 4.0.4131 which says supports 32 bit, but only contains 64 bit.

    All I'm looking for is the driver pack so that I can manually install the necessary drivers under windows. Supposedly this was possible some time ago, but since the future is now, 10.8.3 and dropped support for 32 bit on newer models (like my Retina 13") blocks my progress?

    Any hints?
