    All,

    I think it would be a good idea for people to post working and non-working drivers for Windows x64, and even x32. In this thread, so hopefully it becomes a sticky, and then moved to a guide. This way people don't need to search the infiniteness we call the Internet for days on end.

    I will be installing Windows 7 x64 in the next couple weeks on my MBP and I'll be finding the drivers by hand. I don't expect any Apple created drivers to work.

    Lastly, I will post updates on how things are and hopefully screenshots of how to install drivers on Windows 7.

    I don't think you understand what I'm proposing.

    I see so many "driver did not work on Windows 7" or "Could not install Windows 7 due to driver" threads that I feel it's time we make a list of drivers that work.

    The other day I helped a friend rebuild his computer and install Windows 7. Basically, a Mac Pro is that, but with Apple's laptops and iMacs, not all drivers work properly or at all.

    I propose we make a thread with a list a working and non-working drivers for Apple's computers. This way we don't see the same threads over and over again.

    Windows 7, like Vista, finds the drivers for you.

    Just installing the OS, you will see that your trackpad, network, and wireless work out of the box.

    great idea!

    has anybody successfully installed 64-bit win7 onto an i7 imac? i have gone through the installation process, but a blank screen appears when it should go to the "desktop".

    The drivers supplied by apple seem to work fine for me. No need to search around the net when apple already provided them (both 32bit and 64bit)

    I think they do for the vast majority of people (except the people that post here of course). In fact, pretty much any Vista driver that I have been forced to use in Windows 7 has worked fine as well.
