    Ok so I installed Windows 7 on my bootcamp partition and all went well, but when I booted up after installing all the windows downloads that were necessary and rebooted I put in mac install disc two to find that windows 7 won't recognise it and therefore I can' install drivers for bootcamp like the sound. When using it in VMWare which has it's own driver is works fine. So I download the realtek HD audio files and don't understand which to setup so I do all the setups in the vista xp folder and the one in the first subfolder and I still dont' have any drivers installed. If you followed all that, do you have any ideas on what I can do or how to get windows 7 to recognise the mac install disc 2?

    the boot camp drivers should be on the first install disc. unless the discs that come with the imac are different from the macbook pro.

    If I was to put my mac disc into a windows xp pc and copy the bootcamp setup onto a thumbdrive would windows 7 on bootcamp then recognize it and would it work? :confused:

    For some reason you have to right-click on the Leopard DVD (in Windows) and explore the disc. Look for the Boot Camp folder, then run BootCamp.exe. Afterwards, be sure to update to Boot Camp 2.1 via Apple Software Update (which should install with Boot Camp).
