    Hi guys, I just received my refurb'd high end 2011 MBP and have got a question about bootcamp. I want to create a windows 7 partition for gaming. My question is, how do I get my drivers installed after I have partitioned the drive and installed windows when I have no install disc? New models don't ship with install discs like the old snow leopard models. Will creating a lion backup work, or do I need to do something else. Please help me out guys lol.

    Lion's Bootcamp Assistant will allow you to create the drivers onto a USB drive during the setup.

    [Small fact, Snow Leopards's Bootcamp can't find the file on the Apple site to download during the Bootcamp install right now.]
