    I just used boot camp to install windows 7 on my MacBook (running Leopard 10.6.6) and nothing works. How can I get the proper drivers so that everything will work smoothly?

    Can someone provide me with a link?

    You should be able to install the drivers for windows from the disks that came with the computer. If that doesn't work you might be able to download the drivers off Apple's website, but you need to find the drivers, not their updates.

    I tried running the disk. It didn't work. It was CD and DVD sharing or some crap like that. Any idea why?

    ----------

    So i found an article saying the following:


    I believe I figured it out. For anyone else who has this issue, the solution is to right click on the DVD under "My Computer" and browse to the setup.exe under the "Boot Camp" folder.




    How can I right click in Windows from my trackpad??? The two fingers does not work...any tricks?

    --Nevermind, you found it.

    Can you just double click it?
    You could use a real mouse, or you can open up command prompt and run it through there.

    No problem. So you are installing the drivers now then?
