    I put the Apple Leopard DVD in with the drivers on it and it installed some of the drivers, but I got this error message about 2 or 3 times.
    "Service key agent failed to start. Verify that you have sifficient privalges to start system services." with 3 options, Ignore, Abort, Retry.
    Does anyone have any idea how to fix this????
    On a Macbook Pro by the way

    The Windows Vista x64 drivers are currently only available for the Mac Pro. You will have to find other drivers (many websites have them and some might be compatible) if you want to run it on your Macbook Pro.

    I have the same problem. I have MBP 17" 2.6Ghz. I bought 64bit windows because it was recommended on this forum. The person said that for the long run it was better.
    Now I cant install drivers...

    After a whole bunch of google searching I managed to get drivers for almost everything. I found the important drivers that were missing like the video driver, network adapters, etc. Didn't get keyboard or isight drivers though, but I used the remapper for the keyboard. I'm gonna try to do a write up for it.

    Here's where you can get most of the drivers...

    Though, propriety drivers for the iSight and Keyboard will have to wait, Apple haven't released them.

    Thanks for the links!
    How to make Mac OS a default OS to boot, provided that Boot Vamp does not work with my MBP and Vista 64 bit? Does anyone have any idea?

    Do a google search for rEFIT. Great little program that lets you choose what to boot every time without hitting any buttons

    Boot into OSX. Go to System Preferences->Startup Disk :)
