    Hey guys.
    I just installed Vista 64bit on my Mac Pro.
    I don't have Leopard or Mac OS installed at all due to my graphic cards problem.
    So I installed it successfully and I downloaded the BCUpdateVista64
    When I click on it, it asks me, "Allow", and I allow it.
    Then nothing happens...
    This is a English version of Vista 64bit Ultimate.
    Can someone help me?

    I had the same problem on my unibody macbook pro. I found that I had to install the drivers from my bootcamp disk before the update would work with my 64 bit vista ultimate version. I guess it's not a stand alone update version. I explored the disk and installed just the x64 vista drivers and I was then able to install the update package.

    It's your Install Disk 1 for OSX. Pop it in the tray and it should begin.

    So...

    The problem I am having is that I lost my OSX discs in a fire :( Is there any other way to get those boot camp files installed?

    Did you download it through Software Update (in Windows) or did you download the stand-alone installer?
