    I have successfully installed Windows Vista Home Premium on my MBA through Boot Camp.

    I have tried to install the MBA drives from the OS X install disk repeatedly, but without success. The "setup.exe" seems to be working fine, but after restart, Windows does not seem to recognize the Mac drives. Updating the drives manually did not improve the situation.

    Does anyone know how to install the drives correctly?

    Many thanks for your help,
    Regards,

    Mac disks, by default, use a different file system which is unreadable by Windows. This is detailed in the Boot Camp documentation. You will not be able to read your Mac disks in Windows without using a third-party solution. I've used this in the past and it has worked well for me: http://www.mediafour.com/products/macdrive/
