    I just installed Windows 7 x64 on my iMac. It seems Boot Camp and Apple in general refuse to support the 64-bit Windows 7 though for some reason. As a result I have no audio support, my iSight isn't supported and a couple of other things are a little screwy. Anyone got any suggestion on how to get these drivers working fine on Windows 7?
    I tried running the Boot Camp assistant from the Leopard disc that came with the iMac as well as the one from my Snow Leopard family edition disc I purchased. Neither seem to work on Windows 7 x64 though. I also tried the Windows Vista => Windows 7 x64 upgrade firmware that Apple released, but that's also not working as I don't have Windows Vista to begin with.
    HELP PLEASE!

    Edit: Also, my Magic Mouse doesn't seem to work on Windows either. I tried installing the firmware hacked by Uneasy Silence, but that's not working either. Any tips with that?

    Read the first post of this thread. Should work the same way.

    Thanks a lot! That fixed all of what I asked for except for the Magic Mouse. Anyone got any tips with that?

    It seems I had done everything correctly... Minus rebooting even though it doesn't necessarily tell you to reboot after installation.
