    I am not very knowledgeable with computer customizing so I need insight.

    Basically, I wanted to play pc games on my macbook pro.
    I decided to purchase SSD hard drive and use already purchased windows 7 cd.

    I followed procedure of installing the SSD drive (Samsung brand) on to the macbook and simply installed the windows 7 cd.

    Afterward, I realized that my macbook lost all the macbook functions: keys on F1~F12 (which was expected).
    Moreover, I couldn't hear the sound and headphone plug hole had red light on.
    Graphic Card was not supported so I couldn't play the games...

    Overall, I have no idea why... I have followed the procedure in the net such as installing realtek hd audio program (still no sound).

    Can someone help me what I have done wrong and what I should have done in order to resolve the problem that I am facing!?!

    Did you also install the windows support software (typically 2nd checkbox on boot camp assistant), or odd you install windows outside do boot camp?

    I just learned that from my friend so I gave a try.

    So I checked the second option and used the USB to download.

    However, I realized that my Windows 7 is 32bit and it doesn't support = can't launch the .exe file.

    I don't know what to do from here...

    Download a x64 ISO here only if you key can activate x64 or x86, I'm unsure what Microsoft would do when you try to activate
