    Hey guys...

    I just installed the RC of Windows 7 on my iMac using Boot Camp. The OS installed fine and all seems fine (WiFi, sound etc.), except for some reason I can't seem to be able to use my (bluetooth) Apple wireless keyboard and mighty mouse. I am currently being forced to use my old keyboard/mouse that I had on my old PC.

    Any advice on how to get it up and running?

    this is what I managed to do to pair my bluetooth keyboard to windows 7 on my macbook. I suppose it is the same for you.

    Under OSX:
    remove the keyboard and mouse from bluetooth devices.

    Reboot into Win7:
    pair the bluetooth keyboard and mouse. It should allow you to pair now.

    reboot into OSX:
    pair the bluetooth keyboard and mouse to OSX.

    This is how I got my bluetooth wireless keyboard to work with win7 as well as OSX.

    Hope it works for you! :)

    Hey, thanks dude. Your strategy worked. It was still a bit of a pain because the time taken to enter the pairing code in Windows was ridiculously short. It's like a game of "Who Can Type the Quickest". Eventually got it, though.

    Again, thanks for your help...
