I just got Vista Ultimate x64 running under Boot Camp (under 10.5.2) and want to improve the graphics. FYI - sees my 16 GB RAM, network, and sound card, but not any of the drives on my MacPro (any thoughts on that?) Can I install the NVidia Windows Vista 64x bit drivers while running Vista under Boot Camp?
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.
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?
I have a few issues with device support I thought I ping this community about:
1) Wireless Adapater doesn't show up in Device Manager (and doesn't work of course) 2) iSight, Network Controller and Performance counters all have (i) issues in Device Manager (update driver online doesn't work) 3) Resolution maxes out at 1280x800 (me thinks this is because it thinks the monitor is a generic PnP monitor)
Any ideas on where to get the proper drivers? I did the bootcamp stuff using the latest and greatest with the new MacOS.
I have a late 2008 (the brand new) Macbook Pro 2.53 C2D and I installed vista on a partition succesffuly. But once I try to install Boot Camp drivers, it doesn't work. I open up the leopard DVD, and it starts installing all the network cards and video cards, but then it gets to "KeyAgent" and it says it failed to install because I it couldn't access startup services. I pressed ignore, then it came to "MacHal" (i think, somehting like that) and it said the same thing. I looked under my account privelges, and I'm an administrator with access to everything, so I'm not sure what's going on.
So I installed Vista and then popped in the OS X Disc 1 to install the drivers, like I did with Win XP before. All I get on screen is the window where I get to choose whether to install OS X on my MBAir or install disc sharing....no drivers.
Do i need a specific version of Vista to be able to install boot camp drivers ? SP1 or SP2 maybe ?
I remember I had the same issue with Win XP SP3, which seemed weird since it's supposed to be even more complete then the previous version, right ?
im having trouble installing bootcamp and drivers on vista for my macbook. i installed vista without problems but when i put my leopard disc in it doesnt not run the bootcamp installer instead it goes into a macbook air installer and asks for me to connect to a macbook air. what is wrong? i have done it before so i dont know why i cant do it now. should i do everything all over again?
I left my Leopard Discs at home and will be away for about a month. I installed Vista but do not have the correct Boot Camp drivers. I was wondering if anyone knows where to find the newest drivers. I need the ones from the disc that came with the computer if anyone can put a link or upload them. Tried Boot Camp 2.0 and update from April to 2.1. Does not have the correct display drivers, trackpad, and network drivers.
I just installed Windows Vista x64 on my 2.4Ghz Unibody Macbook this morning for some software development, and I accidently left my install DVD at home - I'm at college right now. Is there any site I can download the drivers for from? Or could somebody possibly send me a link to a download? I tried the 2.1 download on Apple's website, but it doesn't start up.
I searched for a while trying to find the answer but did not find it. I just installed Vista Business via Bootcamp. I am not able to access the internet or anything. If I read the help stuff right I need to use the OSX install disk to install the drivers. The problem is, I don't have the install disk. Is there any other way to get the drivers? Or am I just missing something easier?
I want to erase my WinXP Boot Camp partition and make a new, slighly larger one with Vista (don't ask why, not exactly my choice). The problem is I am away from home at the moment and visiting my parents. All I took with me was a Vista Ultimate install DVD. Today I opened the Boot Camp Assistent and I discovered that I need the Leopard DVD (Mac OS X Install Disc 1 in my case). Unfortunately, I didn't take this with me.
Any suggestions about what to do? I can always wait until after the holidays and install everything the legit way. I can also bit torrent drivers but I am a little skeptical of pirated setup.exe files. For some reason Apple doesn't post download links on their website. Could someone maybe send me their legit setup.exe?
I recently purchased a 13 inch macbook pro and dual-booted windows 7 on boot camp.
The graphics driver on this computer is out of date. You should update the graphics driver on this computer before running Halo 2 for Windows Vista. You may experience problems running Halo 2 for Windows Vista if you choose to continue without updating.
I find the new trackpad drivers to be pretty horrible. It's so sensitive that it picks up all the minor movements.
It gets really frustrating because whenever I use my thumb to press down the trackpad, the trackpad picks up all those mini movements causing the cursor to shift a little everytime I press down the trackpad. This makes double clicking pretty hard.
I am trying to use my OLD HP scanjet 3300C with my imac 10.6.2. There are no drivers, system preference doesn't let me add the scanner, google search just confused me. Does anybody know how I can get this scanner working properly.
I just installed Windows 7 and have got as far as installing the graphics card drivers from ati's website (since the ones that windows update installs are almost always out of date). Now the card is being recognised as a Radeon HD 5750 but I know from other discussions best guess is It's actually a Mobility card inside the iMac.
So I got this eSATA card for my MacPro a while back and was able to install quite easily. I've done a fresh install on a new harddrive of my OS and no longer have the driver disc for the eSATA card. Does anyone know a method for ripping the drivers from my old hard drive? Or does anyone know where I can actually get the driver? I can't seem to locate it anywhere on Iomega's site.
Hello all - First confession time. I am not a Mac user and know next to nothing about them (I think the old guy in the Mac vs PC ad is my twin brother!). One of my children has an iBook G4 so that's as close as I come.
My question is about that G4. My daughter recently bought a Lexmark X3430 All-in-One Printer / scanner / whatever. Of course she didn't read the box which says "For Windows OS". Lexmark does NOT have Mac drivers for their X3430 and the GIMP-print / gutenprint website does not list one either.
Does anyone out there have experience with this printer and know where I might be able to score a driver?
I got my Aluminum MacBook 2.4 a few days ago and I have since then installed Windows XP SP3, I recall reading about being able to install new Nvidia graphics drivers to get even better performance. I tried to search it, but I couldnt find the process on how to install them.
