    I just got my 24" iMac, 2.8ghz, 4gb ram, 500gb HD. I installed boot camp and installed 32bit Vista ultimate on 32gb ntfs partition.

    Is it true that I can only use a ntfs partition when installing Vista?

    Vista works ok but a few things I've noticed doesn't work well.

    Video card - resolution does not allow me to adjust to optimal resolution. The screen looks stretched (like on a big screen hdtv displaying sd content)

    Sound doesn't work

    Did leopard not install the drivers needed for vista or how do I go about getting these drivers?

    Thank you for any help.

    In Windows, insert the Leopard DVD... it should show up.

    Run the installer to install the Windows drivers.

    That is the set of instructions that Bootcamp Assistant gives... sometimes the answer really is: RTFM. :)

    well, yeah, but I ddin't have a printer so I couldn't print the instructions. I ended up going to apple.com and got the pdf file and it didn't say to insert the disk in windows. or at least i didn't see it. :)

    Thanks for directing me though.
