    1 - I have an early 2008 iMac 24" and ordered Snow Leopard disc from Apple
    2 - After installation of Win7 64 bit and problems with boot camp 3.1 drivers support then tells me my computer will not run windows 7 64 bit and sends me a list of non-compatibles. Sure enough mine is one.
    3 - Several respondents help me and it appears that 64 bit will run but still trouble with keyboard/mouse.
    4 - uninstall 64 bit and install 32 bit and related boot camp drivers
    5 - numeric keypad on apple keyboard still does not work with office 2010
    6 - just tried to update drivers for win 32 but it says more current ones are installed??? I guess that is from the attempt to install 3.1 for win 64 unsuccessfully?
    7 - Now support lists computers that will not run windows 7 and mine is not on that list.

    right now i'd be a happy camper if someone could just tell me how to get the Apple keyboard that came with my iMac and the numeric keypad working when in Windows or Office.

    Did you try hitting the "Clear" key? In windows it's mapped to Num Lock.

    Thanks so much. I swear I did but it didn't work. After reading your reply viola! Thanks again. The key was hitting "Clear" as you stated.
