    Hi Forum,

    I was wondering where I could get a set of NVIDIA nForce 730i drivers for my late-2009 White MacBook 13-Inch with Windows 8 Pro. My MacBook BootCamp Drivers kept crashing Windows and eventually had to re-install it.:apple:.

    You don't have that video card on that laptop. Installing those drivers either: won't do anything or crash Windows.

    No. I'm looking for the drivers That Support Windows 8/8.1 and are for the NVIDIA nForce 370i Motherboard. The ones that Apple provided makes a huge error in Windows and I wouldn't be able to go passed the login screen.

    Because when I install them they keep crashing Windows. I've had to backup and restore Win8.

    Ok. I don't need Boot Camp, all I need is a set of NVIDIA nForce 730i Motherboard drivers for my computer. (I Prefer Windows 8 drivers)

    Windows 7 is dull like a normal PC. Windows 8 however is bright and twisted with hidden features and what not.

    (Don't get me started on the Start Menu)

    Seriously? Buy a new machine if you want to run Windows 8 properly.

    There's nothing wrong with Windows 7. I run it by preference on everything apart from the Surface Pro.

    Then again I'm not lured in by bright and twisted. Yeah, the under the covers improvements are good. The broken interface that doesn't work on non-touchscreen machines isn't.

    I don't think a fourteen year old kid has the money to buy a beefy computer with pre-installed Windows 8.1. Oh, and seriously windows 8 is twisted, I can't seem to get my head around it.
