    I just installed Windows XP on my MBP (2011, Snow Leopard)

    Unfortunately, I cannot connect to the Internet, use the F# buttons, or anything Mac related. So I think the Mac Drivers did not install over.

    The problem is that the osX install disc does not support XP, only Windows 7.

    I do not have Windows 7 Disc, and do not have the money to buy it. Unless you have access to a free download of Windows 7 to share, please do not suggest Windows 7.

    I can't even connect to the Internet on the XP side, Wireless or Wired.

    Help on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Additional:
    I tried to install the Bootcamp 2.2 Update on Apple's Site. It ran, but said I needed a previous version to Upgrade. So I tried 2.1 (File name BCUpdateXP.exe). When I click this *On XP side* (Saved on my Flashdrive), absolutely nothing happens. No download box, not even an error code. Nothing.

    Lots of posts in this forum with people reporting success in this area ... take a look around perhaps?
