    HELP!!! I'm not tech savvy at all, have no idea what to do. I have been able to get the network and graphics driver into windows but that's it. Tried downloading this boot camp 2.1 update for vista64 but it won't run in vista at all.

    I have no idea where to get a chipset driver or anything. I go into Windows Device Manager and for all my things there are generic drivers dated 10/1/2006 (except the graphics card) so I don't think I have good chipset drivers.

    And I don't have a Boot Camp program anywhere in Windows either!!

    Have you installed the drivers from your gray OS X Restore disc that came when you bought your iMac?

    Most won't install properly, a few did. But again, also I don't have a proper chipset driver and I don't have the bootcamp software showing up on Windows so I can adjust settings either. Can't get Bootcamp 64 to run, but I see it on the OS X disk!

    Disable UAC (User access control) in vista then run that BootCamp64.msi again.

    I finally got it, but not the easy install I had expected with Apple. Ugh. Wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy.

    Apple only officially support 64-bit Vista with the Mac Pro desktop and the MacBook Pro lines.
