    So after upgrading my Early '09 iMac's Windows 7 partition to Windows 10, I wiped that partition and clean installed Windows 10.

    But after installing it, I didn't see a need to install the bootcamp driver package. Windows already downloaded almost all the drivers that it actually needed. All I did was manually install the apple keyboard MSI file.

    I did notice in device manager that it still needed 2 drivers. iSight camper and coprocessor. I don't use the camera so that's no big deal, but am wondering about the driver for the coprocessor though.

    So I was curious if I am missing out on anything by not installing the bootcamp drivers? I personally can't see a need to force install a newer bootcamp driver package since I practically have everything in there I already need.

    Some motherboards northbridge and southbridge chipsets are made by Nvidia with Nforce support. If Windows didn't have the driver included then install Bootcamp drivers.
