    Hey guys,

    I have a question about installing Windows 7 Ultimate on my MacBook is the same as when I installed Windows Vista, just use the same drivers from the Bootcamp disc or is it different all together? if so could someone explain what is different.

    I did a search but nothing useful came up :(

    I committed a cardinal sin and installed Vista, the boot camp drivers and then did a Windows 7 upgrade over the top. The conventional wisdom states that this will result in a funked up Windows 7, but it works fine for me.

    I've just been using the disc I got with my macbook/mac mini to install boot camp for Windows 7. Just insert the disk and run boot camp from the Apple folder. Each release seemed to have its own issues but I just installed the latest release candidate build (7100) and everything works extremely well. I'm really impressed by Windows 7 right now.

    I find that letting Windows 7 find it's own drivers usually works best. Just run windows update after initial install.

    You can always just install select parts of the bootcamp drivers, such as the apple keyboard driver so that you can still use your eject/F1-F11 keys as intended.
