    I tried to install Vista business edition 32-bit (without SP1) on my Unibody Macbook Pro (late 2008 model). After that, I installed

    1) Bootcamp 2.0 from a retail Leopard DVD and its upgraded version (2.1)
    2) nForce 730i driver (from NVIDIA web site)
    3) Geforce 9000M series graphics card driver (from NVIDIA web site)

    Currently there are still several driver issues:

    1) "Network Controller" driver is not working.
    2) "Apple iSight" driver is not working.
    3) No wireless device shown up in my device manager.
    4) No sound.

    I don't have my original MacOSX DVD with me. Does anybody know how to fix those problems?

    Doesn't the retail DVD run the Bootcamp wizard when you put it in the drive? That should have installed all your drivers for you.

    I'm not certain what network card your Mac uses but mine is a Marvell ethernet card so you could try their site.

    In fact, before installing the NVIDIA driver (after the Bootcamp is installed), I had more driver problems than I currently have.
    For example, Bootcamp 2.1 couldn't recognize my Ethernet Controller and Coprocessor.
    I tried to download Marvell drivers posted on their web site. It didn't work at all.

    The DVD you have hasn't got your drivers on the disk, I had the same problem when I found out my unibody disc was defective.

    I could help further if you enable private messaging or email.
