    I have a late 2008 uMB and my friend has a late 2008 uMBP. Is it possible to use my restore disk to install the bootcamp drivers on his computer after he installs windows? Are the drivers all the same, or are they hardware specific like they are with the OSX install? Any help is appreciated, thanks.

    I believe that the bootcamp drivers are all the same (that is, drivers for all machines are included) and your windows partition should not deny them the way the OSX partition does...
