    did you create a driver CD/DVD? Bootcamp even asks you to create a Driver CD/DVD before you install XP/Vista.

    The drivers are also on your Leopard disc if you have one.

    you're an idiot...
    it even tells you to create a driver disc when you make a bootcamp partition...
    at least read the screens that popup instead of just clicking okay to everything...

    Find Boot Camp Assistant in Utilities, right click, pull down Show Package Contents.

    Go to Contents->Resources and right click on DiskImage.dmg, select Open With-> Disk Utility. Select the image from the panel at the left and click Burn. Insert blank CD and burn. Restart into Windows once the CD is burned and install the drivers.

    I bet he is one of those idiots that always get malware because they fail to follow instructions and just click away.

    :werd: I have a MBP that I run OS X 10.5 and a custom built desktop that is running Vista Ultimate. I rarely have problems with either. Vista is a solid OS if you know what you're doing. People just expect it to be XP and it's not. In fact it is far beyond XP.
