    Hey guys, so I have a late 2008 Macbook Pro.

    Obviously my new disks do not have the new Windows 7 drivers needed for this computer since W7 didn't exist then. I got Windows 7 working but it dosent have nessisary drivers aka most custum buttons dont work, sound dosent work, video is ok, but most hardware isnt working to full capacity.


    Anyway, where Do I get them, and How? Are thew on snow leopard disks?

    Thanks Guys

    • Insert your Snow Leopard install disc while booted to Windows
    • Install Boot Camp drivers from Snow Leopard disc
    • Reboot Windows, and run the Apple Software Update program to download the latest Boot Camp drivers.

    im running into a similar problem but the thing is my computer came with Pather 10.3. So when I insert the disc nothing shows up...

    Can I burn my own snowleopard cd, would borrowing a copy from a friend work?
    Any Ideas?

    josmo, Are you still running 10.3? Which Mac do you have?

    BootCamp won't work unless you have a Intel Mac.

    Not just Boot Camp. Snow Leopard is exclusive to Intel-based Macs. A PPC-based Mac can't run it.
