    I've got a new MB alum 13' from my cousin and tried to install xp sp2 successfully.But he forgot to bring along the OEM Leopard disk, which apple says it's required to install xp drivers.So, I've dowloaded from the internet and installed them but it didnt work.Now I have no wireless, bad video quality, bluetooth,etc.I asked my friend and he said I must remove the parallel and tried to reinstall sp2,but I don't believe this will work out.So, anyone help me please, to install all the xp sp2 drivers for my Mac.:(

    I think Apple's website has bootcamp files. All you have to do is to run setup.exe from that file.

    Which disc did you put in: #1 or #2?

    Also did you use the disc the computer came with?

    Unfortunately,I lost it, and I wind up buying a pirated copy of a leo disk, which the seller said would be working well with my MB.But it didnt, so do you know where I can download those drivers for my Mac over the Internet?

    Well too bad you wasted your money buying pirated stuff- especially since you can buy replacement Software Restore installer disk sets directly from Apple that will work. Lesson learned I guess.

    Just call Applecare and tell them you need a set of "fulfillment disks", give them the serial number of your Mac (they use that to make sure you get the exact set you need as opposed to the scum sucking pirate :mad:) and they will ship them right away for a moderate fee. I recently bought a pair for a G5 that were $32 shipped- and they worked great.

    I'm currently in Cambodia, which has no applecare and Apple does not ship anything to my country, also.That's why I went to buy a pirated copy:(.This disk worked well on other old versions of MB but it sucks when applied to the one I own.Once again, can anybody out there help me, or show me the file I can download it over Internet.I'm desperated now :(.

    Am I the only one who seems to think that this is an oxymoron?

    And why didn't you just go online and download the appropriate drivers? It's not like you have to pay for drivers... ever, and you can find hundreds of them online.

    Would you please show me those files? I've been doing searching for a long time but there's no driver worked on my MB.
