    Hi

    I installed Windows 7 on newest Mac Mini with Boot Camp, and then did the Leopard driver disk thing.

    Everything works PERFECT except 3 things:

    1) My Apple Bluetooth Keyboard
    2) My Apple Bluetooth Mouse
    3) You can't eject an optical disk even from the windows menu

    Any ideas on how to fix these three? Everything else including sound is fine.

    Many thanks.

    For the BT mice and keyboard u need to go into the Bluetooth settings(control panel or systray) and pair the devices there.

    Once you get the keyboard and mouse paired then everything should work. Bootcamp drivers whether it be 32bit or 64bit install the the software to the eject button, volume controls, and other misc stuff. If the eject button still doesn't work then go to "my computer" and then right click on the cd drive and hit eject. :)

    Yes, right clicking on eject does not work. Sorry I couldn't explain myself better. You can click eject, but it doesn't pop the disk out.

    Also, for the keyboard and mouse I do try to pair it, and it does not work, I knew the steps to try these things, but they don't work.

    Hum, guess maybe it was too early to do RC 7? Many thanks!

    Reboot and try again. I found I had to reboot after the initial install prior to eject working.

    I installed Windows 7 on my MacBook, and after installing the drivers from the Leopard disk my BT mouse didn't work either. The computer and mouse found each other, but it just hung on "Connecting..." for about 10 minutes. The weird thing is that my mouse worked on the first boot immediately after installing Win7 without even having to pair it.

    Windows 7 was pretty cool, but it really had a long way to go performance-wise. It's probably just the GMA950 holding me back with the graphics lag, but it also kept crashing and restarting every so often, so I WinCloned XP back on there.

    Well I wasn't using the BT keyboard, just the one built-in to the MacBook. But I never did get the BT mouse to work.

    Somehow, I finally got the keyboard AND mouse to work.

    When I was in the add screen, instead of click the device and going continue, I instead right clicked, allowed the next menu to fully load, took a while, and then clicked the check box, and it pulled a driver from the mouse or something, not sure, but it works perfect now. same with keyboard.

    many thanks.
