    Hey all,
    so im trying to install windows 7 on my mac.
    i read a lot about it online but i still have a few questions about bootcamp.
    i have osx leopard 10.5, and bootcamp 2.0.
    my question is, can i install windows 7 with bootcamp 2.0 or do i need bootcamp 3.0 or 3.1 to install windows 7 successfully? and if so how/where do i download them from? and do i install them before installing windows 7? or after, through windows?

    thanks in advance any help is much appreciated

    Dont know about 10.5 but on my IMac with Snow Leo, 7 works great. The new BC3.1 solved the waking up from sleep issue.

    well, u could ask someone to lend you a snow leopard dvd, or you could get the drivers from a torrent :D... thats what i did since i didn't feel like upgrading to snow leopard yet.

    which drivers are you referring to? the ones that come with bootcamp 3.0 and 3.1?

    I'm assuming he's talking about the Boot Camp drivers that are on the DVD (3.0), because you'd need those in the first place before installing the 3.1 update. But that's pretty retarded because Snow Leopard is $29. Save yourself the hassle and just buy it.
