    :apple: hello again MR,

    im having problems getting the hardware drivers for the new MBP 15' 2.4ghz to install on windows. I've followed the instructions on the site.

    but when i put in the isntall cd it gives me two options. one being to install bootcamp/OSX (which i didn't want it to delete windows on that partition.)

    or it gives me the option to allow a macbook air to use my cd drive as it's own ( or something to that extent)

    i've tried searching the apple site and on these forums on help to this issue but no soloution yet.

    any help would be much appreciated!

    Have you tried right clicking the Leopard DVD in My Computer and click on Explore --> then go into the Boot Camp folder. The installer should be in there. For whatever reason, it doesn't show up under Vista (but does in XP/7).

    Start Windows, then put in the CD. That should get your installation going.
