    hi! i'm planning to install windows 7 64-bit in my mbp, problem is i looked at the requirements needed and it stated that i needed boot camp update 3.1. i checked my boot camp version and it stated that i had 3.0.1, tried using software update, but states that i had no updates available. what should i do? and what else do i have to keep in mind while installing windows using boot camp. thanks in advance!

    You just need the drivers, those are installed after installing the operating system. It is not provided via software update on the Mac. Either download 3.1 from Apple (if you can) or just get it off of a Snow Leopard disk.
