    I've installed a legit copy of Windows XP, SP2. Nothing works, not my webcam, not my internet, not even the full resolution. The first time around that I did this, I had the DVD that came with my iMac, I installed the Windows drivers stuff off of it, and everything worked perfectly.
    Of course, I have since lost that DVD and am now in dire need of help. Can anyone point me in the direction of either a replacement for that DVD (.iso image or something?) or simply the required drivers that will let my iMac 8,1 connect to the web?
    Thanks in advance.

    Call 1-800-APL-CARE. They will replace your disc for a fee. You could also use a $29 retail SL upgrade disc if the version on it was released after your iMac.

    Unfortunately those are the only ways to get it legitimately.

    I'm in Germany, so obviously using that number won't work for me. I bought my iMac from an authorized reseller, do you think they might also replace my disc?
    Thanks for helping.
