    Hello,

    A friend of mine recently purchased a new 2010 17" Macbook pro, Core i7 2.66ghz with 8GB of RAM.

    He successfully carried out the 3 stages of bootcamp installation (partitioning drive, installing windows and installing drivers).

    However he is suffering from two main issues.

    1. Windows 7 fails to recognise his wireless adapter, it is not listed in the windows hardware tree. He has attempted to install the Broadcom drivers from their website and the HP drivers that have been noted to work on apple discussions.

    2. Windows 7 fails to recognise his graphics card as an NVIDIA GT 330M, recognising it as a standard VGA adapter, and he is again having issues installing the NVIDIA drivers.

    Has anyone else been plagued with these issues. Any information would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Has he installed the latest Boot Camp drivers? Is Windows up-to-date?

    CD 1 that came with your system should have all the Windows drivers you need.

    Sorta looks like one of these:
