    Hi, I just recently removed Windows 8 due to some bugs, so I'd rather install Widnows 7 for gaming. Windows 7 x64 bit.

    I ran bootcamp assistant, and saved all the drivers down and installed windows 7. Im having some issues that renders the win 7 partition useless.
    • Magic Mouse is not connecting, and its not found in the 'add device' wizard.
    • The 'dimming keys' is not working, the Apple icon shows but the screen isnt really dimming.

    I've tried uninstalling all drivers and installing again. I also ran Apple Software Update from within Windows. Im using Bootcamp assistant 4.0.1 on a 2011 iMac.

    What about your screen dimming? Does that work in Windows 7?

    Scrolling came to life with a 3. party driver i had to install.

    My screen is so bright I feel like crying! :)

    The brightness controls on Windows are a bit hit and miss with the Boot Camp drivers. I always find the screen to bright, even at the lowest setting, but most of the time the control don't work at all.

    Sometimes, doing a reboot fixes the problem for me. But now I'm running Windows 8 CP and they're completely broken, not surprising at it's not support yet :)
