    Hey there all!

    So I recently had to replace my HDD in my Mid-2009 MBP. I got a SSD from my friend, who was using it to build a PC - so Windows 7 was already loaded onto the drive. I just ordered Lion and am waiting for it to arrive! In the meantime I'm using Windows 7.

    So I've lost all functionality of my backlit keyboard, volume, brightness adjustment and all my gestures. Is there anyway to get my gestures back like tap to click, two finger scroll. And what about adjusting lights on the screen and keyboard?

    Thanks!

    You need to download the bootcamp drivers from another mac by running the bootcamp assistant and copying them over to a thumb drive, as the standalone drivers don't seem available any other way...

    I see. Well I was kinda hoping there was another way! I'll just be patient and wait for my install discs.

    Thanks a bunch!
