    Hi, I have installed windows 7 in my OSX Lion.
    The problem is I don't have my OSX disc with me (I am an international student and I left it in my home country) to install the drivers for Windows. can I borrow someone else's disc just for me to install the required drivers??

    Appreciate if anyone can offer any advice.. thanks

    Did you use BootCamp to install Win 7 ?

    It should have asked you if you want to download the drivers......

    You should be able download the drivers through software update on the Windows side surely. Lion does not include the Windows drivers anyway....

    in Utlilities you should see BootCamp Assistant, in here you can make the windows support software(drivers) on a cd or usb drive

    Just launch boot camp assistant in the mac.
    Select "Download latest Windows support software from apple".
    Then you can put the drivers on a USB or CD.

    Lion doesn't come with the drivers on the disk anymore, since Lion doesn't come on a disk.

    Snow Leopard came with drivers on the install dvd.
