    Hi everyone I just received a 64-bit copy of Windows 7 through MSDNAA. Everything went well until I put in the Snow Leopard disc to install the drivers. I wasn't aware that Apple only supported 64-bit Boot Camp on the Mac Pros. I guess what I want to know is if there's any work around this, or should I try to get the 32-bit version? Thanks.

    Yes, if you do a search there are some utilities that will modify the 64 bit driver installation so that it will run on a non pro machine. That's how I ran the 64 bit boot camp driver installation for Windows 7 on my iMac which Apple doesn't support for 64 bit Boot Camp installation.

    I don't know if anyone has yet hacked the Bootcamp 3 drivers so that you can run them on a non pro Mac but if they haven't it will only be a matter of time.

    i installed 7 a while back but just updated to bootcamp 3.0
    i stuck in the disk and it told me no 64 supported so i looked at the disk in explorer and found bootcamp64 and ran it and it all worked fine
    but i did do something different when i originaly installed windows but i dont remember what it was but you might try to just find the file and run it anyways

    ps it screwed up my driver for sound everything was muffled but i did a roll back and all is good
