    I've lost my Apple CDs.
    I've installed only W7 licensed.
    Where I could find drivers?
    Thanks

    Or download bootcamp.
    On Apple site I found only the upgrades.

    You can find the drivers on the retail 29$ snow leopard upgrade cds.

    I actually had a similar problem just the other day except W7 wouldn't recognize my SuperDrive via USB. Anyhow, I ended up having to make an iso image of my snow leopard disc, download daemon tools lite, and copy both from the Mac partition to the bootcamp partition. After installing daemon tools and mounting the iso bootcamp popped right up and installed.

    Since you don't have a SL disc on hand, the next best thing for you to do would be to see if you can get your hands on a SL iso image, I'll leave it up to you as to how you go about doing so ;)

    I'm not quite sure how to send a 7GB image, my email is capped at 35MB per email. I'm open to suggestions tho.

    Just buy the SL discs from a store. Less of a hassle than thinking of ways to send 7gigs lol.

    Ha! Fair point. I just know that I would likely be doing the same as the OP if I had lost my disc before spending $30 just for bootcamp drivers. That make me wonder why you can't just download bootcamp 3.0 straight from Apple's site. In any case it's a crappy situation to be in.

    And1ss, why you want to me buy the disk only for drivers?
    If ever I found my disk I don't need to buy.
    But now I need only the drivers and I don't find it on apple site.
    Do yo have the link, please?

    Sab, by skype, or www.wetransfer.con up to 2GB at time, or I can open a ftp to you.
    Tell me if you want to do.
    Eventually contact me in chat.
    Thanks
