    Anyone managed to get W7 up and running with all drivers on a current model iMac (preferably 4850 version) yet?

    i gave up after a while but someone may have worked out which drivers are needed etc by now?

    I dont know which drivers you're talking about but what I did was I just ran the bootcamp64 file and it installed several drivers. I did get 2 errors on 2 services so I just ignored. Everything runs good.

    really? i couldn't even run the bootcamp 64 at first as it said something like "not able to run on this hardware" - i i found a modified version somewhere but that jut came up with loads of errors and the graphics, sound and a few other things didn't work...

    am i missing something? is there a better boot camp version out there i tried 2.1?

    Yeah I just popped in the OSX DVD in there and ran bootcamp64 and it did its thing installing drivers and towards the end I got the 2 service errors so I just ignored.
