    Hello, I've just got a new Macbook Air and I want to run windows 7 on it.

    Its new so it has the latest OS on it and I also have a superdrive and a copy of W7.

    But what I dont have is the Mac disc that sometimes comes with Macs, for when I have installed W7, I believe I need those to get everything working correctly.

    I understand that all I need from that is the boot camp drivers or something like that? Can I get these drivers without having the disc?

    If I can download these somewhere what version do I need to download?

    Thanks

    Daniel

    Open Boot Camp Assistant (Applications/Utilities/Boot Camp Assistant.app) and follow the onscreen instructions. It will create the Windows partition and download the Boot Camp drivers for you. You do not need an OS X installation disc.
