    I am sure that this has been brought up before but I can't seem to find a straightforward answer to what I need to know. First off I bought a macbook pro about 5 months ago in July and it didn't come with CDs. I understand from reading other posts that this is now the case; that they don't send them out any more with the new Macbooks. So now I have installed Windows 7 on a separate partition but can't install the drivers for networking because I don't have a CD to do so. Is there someone out there that can give me detailed directions to either make a copy of the cd somehow? (I'm not asking how to burn a CD here, I just need to know where to get the files from to copy over) Or another way to obtain the drivers with details on how to do so? Thanks in advance for any help or advice you can offer.

    I've seen that before, but the only thing I'm seeing that suggests anything in there pertaining to my situation is this:

    12. Which drivers are included with the OS X Lion Windows support software (drivers) download?

    The Mac OS X Lion Boot Camp Software includes these Mac drivers for Windows:

    Apple Bluetooth
    Apple Keyboard Support
    Apple Remote Driver
    Apple Trackpad
    Atheros 802.11 Wireless
    ATI Graphics
    Boot Camp control panel for Microsoft Windows
    Boot Camp System Task Notification item (System Tray)
    Broadcom Wireless
    Intel Chipset Software
    Intel Integrated Graphics
    iSight Camera
    Marvel Yukon Ethernet
    nVidia Graphics
    Cirrus Logic Audio
    Realtek Audio
    SigmaTel Audio
    Startup Disk control panel for Microsoft Windows

    That's fine and dandy but Where can I Download the "OS X Lion Windows support software (drivers) download"?

    Doesn't Boot Camp Assistant offer you to download the drivers?

    This sounds about right, when I made my partition, I let BootCamp Assistant download the drivers and saved them to an external drive. Then just run the setup.exe while on Windows.
