I managed to successfully install windows 7 32 bit on the imac with all drivers. I thought I should post this as I couldn't find any information on how to install the audio drivers, and how to get the magic mouse scrolling functions to work.
Here is how I got everything installed.
For all files you use before installing them you must right click on them then properties then compatibility,
check the run this program in compatibility mode for windows vista service pack 2
For video nvidia install bootcamp/drivers/nvidia/nvidiagraphicsmobilevista32/setup.exe
For audio install bootcamp/drivers/cirrus/cirrusaudiovista32.exe
For chipset drivers install bootcamp/drivers/nvidia/nvidiachipsetvista32/setup.exe
Install all the software/drivers that is in bootcamp/drivers/apple BUT if you are using windows 7 NOT THE FOLLOWING BOOTCAMP.msi because your oamputer will freeze
For the bluetooth download and install the drivers from [URL]
buying one of these to replace my mouse.There's no store where i live so i can't go into the store and try both I'v never tried the apple trackpad on their laptops either.I used a lot of windows laptops before and what i can say.They were so bad that i always had a little mouse in my back I rly don't know what to expect for the apple track pad.Can it replace completely the mouse and is it comfortable to work with ? Or should i go with the mouse ?
Can't find this ANYWHERE, even on Apple's site. Maybe I've overlooked it, if you find it, point me to it. What are the measurements of the new Magic Mouse (length, width, and height)? If anybody has one and doesn't care to measure. I can't get a new Mac (yet), so I'm going to appease myself with a new, shiny mouse. I want to see how it compares to my Kensington ci70 wireless mouse.
I've installed a legit copy of Windows XP, SP2. Nothing works, not my webcam, not my internet, not even the full resolution. The first time around that I did this, I had the DVD that came with my iMac, I installed the Windows drivers stuff off of it, and everything worked perfectly.
Can anyone point me in the direction of either a replacement for that DVD (.iso image or something?) or simply the required drivers that will let my iMac 8,1 connect to the web?
So, will there be any way to evoke expose and dashboard on the new mouse? I don't use dashboard that frequently, but I do use expose all the time. So, is there like some sort of multitouch gesture or any way to evoke such functions?
Anyone else think there should be an option to invert the up/down scrolling on the Magic Mouse to make it like the iPhone? Try it for yourselves - just flip the Magic Mouse around and try to scroll. You'll find that it's surprisingly natural and intuitive.
I just sold my iMac and thought i would buy a very over priced but yet wonderful Magic Mouse to make my MacBook experience a little easier. The only thing they is annoying though is I am still using the trackpad for expose. I have found MutliClutch for added gestures but it is very hard to use. Any other suggestions?
The reason i sold my iMac is because my iPad and MacBook are all i need. and i hardly use the Macbook anymore because of the iPad. It was wasted on me keeping it when i never use it.
I can't get it to connect, windows finds it but it just says connecting to device. I'm really annoyed with this thing, I know the multi touch stuff wont work but if it doesnt connect to windows as a basic mouse im returning it.
I'm thinking of getting the magic mouse now that drivers have come out for windows. I no the 2 finger swip doesn't work but I want to know if the scrolling is the same as it would be on a mac with the momentum scrolling. If anybody as tested this on bootcamp or straight PC
I'm about to jump on the magic mouse bandwagon but I'm afraid it won't perform great in AutoCad. Does better touch tool work in windows to allow a middle click to pan in Cad? I know the Magic Mouse will be a great Mac mouse, but I want to assure it also performs well with Cad in Windows
I have a Magic Mouse, which worked perfectly on Snow Leopard and Vista Ultimate. Then, I updated to Windows 7 Ultimate and it appears that the system keeps trying to connect to the Magic Mouse. By the way, it still works on Snow Leopard, so the problem is isolated to Windows 7.
ANyone got the new magic mouse working with windows? My old mighty mouse has hit the bin but only now have I realised, on an accidental boot into Windows 7, that I don't have an update to use the new mouse with Windows. Is there one available and how can I install it in the absence of a pointer?
I was wondering if it would be possible to run the Magic Mouse on windows. i have vista ultimate... i know the drivers were available for bootcamp and i downloaded them...i just am hesitant to go out and spend 70 dollars if it doesnt work properly. so if anyone has done it how does it function?
Also, if anyone has a magic mouse for their Mac and own a PC as well,
I have just recently purchased a new 27" iMac i7 and everything so far seems to run as planned. I have successfully partitioned the OS Boot drive via Boot Camp to enable me to use Windows & Mac OS natively, however, in Windows XP I cannot seem to add the Magic Mouse device via bluetooth.
I have read numerous articles/threads/tutorials but still can't get to the bottom of the issue. I've followed the steps where you input the passcode (0000) or no passcode but there is no communication. Also when I right click on the mouse (device has been found), properties, I tick the box "keyboard, mouse and misc functions (HID)" it states "access denied"??
I then close the Bluetooth Device setup, start it back up to see if it has connected but unfortunately the mouse has disappeared again? Any ideas?
(Note: I am running Bootcamp v3.1 and my wired keyboard is fine.)
I just got a Magic Mouse. It works perfectly in OS X, but when I boot into Windows XP, it doesn't work at all. I read that the Bluetooth Update 1.0 is for the new iMacs only. But I read that others got the mouse working, just without the scrolling.
I was wanting to use my Magic Mouse at work on my PC that runs Windows 7 not bootcamp, but on a dell. I have it paring, and scrolling and everything works fine. The only thing is randomly every couple minutes it will freeze. My wired mouse will still move the courser but the Magic mouse doesn't After 5-20 seconds it will unfreeze and quickly preform all the movement that was done with it wile frozen. Anyone know of a fix?
I have windows 7 installed on bootcamp on my 2010 imac. Bootcamp drivers installed. The magic mouse right click is not working properly in windows, but it works perfectly in osx. I usually need to right click twice, sometimes more to get it to right click.
I recently installed Windows vista using going through parallels because my bootcamp failed a while ago. This partition also acts as my bootcamp. Well The internet on parallels works fine because it is using osx network, but when i boot into bootcamp the network drivers seem to be missing. I cant figure it out, but it says the ethernet and network drivers are not there. I cant find the drivers on the internet anywhere and when i use the vista disk i have it still does not want to install them.
