    Hey all, does your 'old' white keyboard work in bootcamp? I can't get some things to work, such as the eject key.

    Any similar cases?

    Did you install the drivers?

    Is Apple Keyboard Support running?

    The keyboard support disappeared after BC 1.3, it's all in the one icon in the taskbar.

    Nothing is working though.

    On the bright side, at least I can type!

    A service is more then likely still running to translate input for Windows.

    Do you have BC 2.0 on your machine? Any problems?

    I'm not running Leopard or Boot Camp.

    There's still a service in 1.4 Beta that translates inputs from my white Apple Keyboard for Windows.

    Yeah, it worked perfectly for me in 1.4 too - I don't know how to extract something like that off the drivers CD though.

    You should be able to via the contents of the package within OS X.

    It might take some digging around but the directory structure for the driver installer can be taken apart and dug around.

    I have no issues in Bootcamp 2.0 with either the old white keyboards or the new alu/white ones.

    Maybe I'll try just reinstalling the drivers and go from there. I don't know how to pull apart installer packages so that's not really an option for me!
