    Hi ,
    i have purchased IMAC 27 inch, with snowlepord OS , i want to install a windows OS on it ( AS DUAL OS SNOWLEPORD AND WINDOWS BOTH WITH EQUAL PARTITIONS) , which OS will support IMAC properly including all its drivers and which will be the supported Boot camp for that .
    i tried the following but only lacked behind for audio drivers :-
    1) windows xp 64 bit ( could not found audio driver )
    2) windows xp 32 bit ( could not found audio driver )
    3) windows 7 64 bit retail version ( after installation screen is black nothing comes up)

    4) steps how i installed windows OS .

    i had made equal partitions in snowlepord OS first then inserted the windows cd and booted the IMAC and followed the steps for installation and it installed sucessfully .
    tried installing drivers from BOOT CAMP 3.0.1 but did not succeeded for audio drivers .
    if there is another method of installing windows please do let me know .

    5) if still audio drivers are not available for any windows OS on IMAC then suggest me the USB audio jack compatable with IMAC so that i can play sound through that .

    6) i want to install any 1 of the following on my IMAC please do let me know if i can get its audio drivers from anywhere .
    A) windows xp 32 bit sp 2
    B) windows xp 64 bit sp 2 or 3
    C) Windows 7 32 and 64 bit

    please advice

    Are you installing the bootcamp drivers off of the OS X disk upon initial boot into Windows?

    You're supposed to install the snow leopard disc that came with your imac for the audio drivers.

    As for the windows 7 64bit, you have to do something specific that may or may not've been updated in the latest boot-camp versions. Apple has an article on it, you have to download some drivers and put them on an sd card or something.
