    Hi There,

    I have done much searching and am still struggling to find all the drivers I need for my new Macbook Pro (2.8). I am rnning XP 64 under bootcamp.

    I have found so far:

    Chipset (intel)
    Video (via laptoptogo)
    wireless (atheros)
    Input Remapper (keyboard backlight fan control)

    I have tried 3 different ethernet drivers, applied with manage devices dialog, none will work. None are recognised as drivers.

    I have also installed the realtek hd audio drivers found in a torrent on demonoid (link found through search here). These install but still no sound.

    There are alos the bluetooth and isight drivers, but these are not as essential as those listed above.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks in advance.

    Has anybody (maybe you ronezvun?!) installed Windows XP Professional x64 successfully on unibody MacBook (Pro)? If yes, could you please explain how you did it, and provide links for missing drivers (are they needed at all if the new version of Boot Camp is available?).

    Thanks,

    zeba

    XP x64 is a terrible OS; never was any good and still isn't; I would go with Vista x64.
