    Hey Guys.. Im thinking about getting a NEW 27 Imac and using it for Flight Simulator and my work on Boot camp..I used boot camp before on a MBP and I used to have to install the windows drivers from the OSX disks. (icamera etc etc) to work.. If I boot camp the New Imac I know it doesnt have a drive, in these days how do you get the windows drivers on to windows? Thanks.. Also will windows partition operate JUST LIKE a full windows computer when booted into windows? Nvidia drivers etc for FSX? Thanks for any replies!

    Greetings,

    There are various way you can go about getting the drivers setup, though I tend to download the latest Bootcamp support file from Apple

    http://www.apple.com/support/bootcamp/

    And have it on a USB key to install after I have windows installed on my Bootcamp partition.

    For newer systems it is usually best to download the newest version of the Windows Support software, which would be available under the Downloads link (button) within the link I provided above.

    If it's your first time, sometimes having this PDF open on an iPhone or iPad next to your system can be of some help. It goes through the steps, and gives you some links to other support information.
