Windows On Mac :: No Disk To Install (Network Connectivity) Drivers For XP

I've successfully installed XP on my Macbook (Late 2009) and now need to install the drivers to get Network connectivity etc. However I don't have my mac disc at hand as I am away travelling at the moment. Can I download the drivers either from my mac or from the internet to USB, then transfer and install them into XP? I have the latest version of OSX and am up-to-date with everything afaik. Running XP Pro SP 3.

Windows On Mac :: Installed Vista Via Bootcamp - Install Drivers Without An Install Disk?
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?

Windows On Mac :: Using UMB Restore Disk To Install Bootcamp Drivers On UMBP?
I have a late 2008 uMB and my friend has a late 2008 uMBP. Is it possible to use my restore disk to install the bootcamp drivers on his computer after he installs windows? Are the drivers all the same, or are they hardware specific like they are with the OSX install? Any help is appreciated,

Windows On Mac :: Unable To Install NVidia Drivers / Drivers Not Compatible With Hardware
So i am trying to change my apple boot camp drivers to nvidia's, but i think i must have downloaded the wrong ones, or done something wrong. I tried to install Geforce/Ion driver release 192.62, (from nvidia's site, i selected gefore 8 series) and when i ran the setup it said: 'nvidia setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your hardware' . My questions are:

� Which drivers should i download? a link would be great.
� Are there any pre-requisites i must do, such as install version 170 first?

I am using an iMac 24" with 4gb ram, 500gb 5400 rpm HDD, and 8800 GS 512mb.

The reason I am trying this, is because when i play some online games, i often get bad lag spikes, but that chat is still running. Someone recommended me to 'update my drivers'.

Windows On Mac :: Finding 8,1 Drivers - How To Install Drivers
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?

MacBook :: Unable To Install Windows 7 Drivers / Old Drivers Are Installing
I have a Macbook plastic, 2.4 GHz intel core 2 Duo with 2 GB of ram.My Mac is currently running on OS X, i used to have a 40 gig partition Windows XP, a couple of friends of mine where talking about how much they liked Windows 7 and finally i had had enough blue screens to say, sure ill switch, why not?... assuming it would not take longer then lets say a day at most, i set off on my quest.

FWI, im running an older model Macbook that was bought refurbished (not sure if that has anything to do with my problem). anyway i removed my previous partition, then using Boot Camp Assistant i repartitioned a 40 gig section for Windows 7. Then ran the installer. I have a copy of Windows 7 ultimate 86x. The Windows boot screen turned up, i had to reformat the partition so that i could install, no problems there. after all said and done the installation worked perfectly, up to a point... First problem that appeared was the lack of sound. i fixed that by downloading Realtek's High Def sound drivers.

Then it was the rest of the drivers for the macbook. heres where i run into my problem, i have the Mac OSX install discs 1 and 2. inserting the first disc the option of the auto run of the setup popped up i clicked run. and instead of the same old install drivers option all i have is the option to install the software that lets macbook airs share cd/dvd drives... needless to say i got frustrated and to put it lightly pissed off...

unsure of wtf was going on i looked it up online and really couldnt find anyone with the same problem, i found a web page saying that i should have the windows auto update itself and that should fix the problem. it did not. i dont know what the hell is going on. and im about this close to reinstalling windows xp and telling windows 7 to go **** itself...

Windows On Mac :: Lost DVD Of Snow Leopard And Want To Install The 3.2 Drivers On Windows 7?
I have just installed Windows 7 via bootcamp and everything went smoothly, the only problem is that i have lost my DVD of snow leopard and want to install the 3.2 drivers on windows 7, however it is to my understanding that i need to install 3.0 from the DVD first. Is there any way around this without ordering another copy of snow leopard? ?25 might not seem a lot but on a student budget i would rather not shell out.

Windows On Mac :: Install The Drivers Through Install Disc
I installed Windows with no problem. Now I need to install the drivers, aka the mac disc. There are 2 mac discs I had in my Macbook Pro package. I put in my first one. It was, surprisingly a blank CD. I put in my second one. It did show BOOTCAMP this time, but it only had the options 'Remote Install Mac OS X' and 'DVD or CD sharing'. I couldn't install them. What is wrong with this. I am certain that the package wasn't fake, since I have the Macbook Pro here, but why doesn't the install CDs work?

Mac Pro :: Does OSX Install Disk Contain All Drivers
So it took me about an hour to render my freshly-delivered Mac Pro unbootable last night (restored from a Time Machine backup, not realizing it copied across kernel extensions, some of which would seem to be causing a problem). I deleted the kext which was causing the kernel panic, but it's been a bit 'iffy' since and I suspect there may be other dodgy kexts causing me problems. I want to start afresh, and I'll just reinstall the apps I want manually. I'm comfortable reinstalling the OS, but just wondered if anyone can confirm whether the install disk which ships with the Mac Pro contains all the drivers I need? Specifically, I have the Radeon 4870 graphics card. I'm thinking of doing an archive & install, just in case.

Windows On Mac :: Finding Network Drivers For Vista 32-bit?
I tried to install Vista business edition 32-bit (without SP1) on my Unibody Macbook Pro (late 2008 model). After that, I installed

1) Bootcamp 2.0 from a retail Leopard DVD and its upgraded version (2.1)
2) nForce 730i driver (from NVIDIA web site)
3) Geforce 9000M series graphics card driver (from NVIDIA web site)

Currently there are still several driver issues:

1) "Network Controller" driver is not working.
2) "Apple iSight" driver is not working.
3) No wireless device shown up in my device manager.
4) No sound.

I don't have my original MacOSX DVD with me. Does anybody know how to fix those problems?

Windows On Mac :: Cannot Install Sigmatel Drivers
I get the error "Another instance of this setup is already running. Please wait for the other instance to finish and then try again." when installing the Sigmatel drivers from the Boot Camp Driver installer.

I've reformatted, reinstalled Windows XP, and tried to install the Boot Camp drivers again but I still get the error.

I tried opening "SigmaTelXPSetup.exe" directly from the "Drivers" folder of the Leopard DVD, but I got the error again

How can I install these drivers to get sound?

Windows On Mac :: How To Install Win7 Drivers
I've tried looking all over and am totally confused with what works with what and how to do it. I am looking at installing windows 7 x64 on either the lower spec 13inch macbook pro, or the lower spec 21.5inch imac. Installing windows 7 itself is so easy, but how do i get the drivers installed and which work? I know I should use the bootcamp drivers for vista off of the OS X disk but is it as simple as inserting the disk, navigating to the folder and running whatever? And does everything work for both the systems I mentioned? Including sound etc., and if not, how do I get it to work.

Windows On Mac :: Leopard Disk Not Available - Which Drivers To Download?
I have a Late '08 Unibody, 2.8GHz variant. I need to do something in Boot Camp and I've set up Windows, and also downloaded and installed the nVidia 9600M GT drivers, and that's working. I'm going to have to need to download DX9.0c as well probably. Now I'll only have access to my Leopard disk again in a few days. Anyone know what are the drivers to install for the mother/logic board, the ethernet at least, and also sound card drivers?

Windows On Mac :: Unable To Install Win7 Drivers
I can't get VMWare to install their tools that supposedly helps with the Win7 drivers. However, i have the Win7 drivers for my MBA from a previous attempt to install Boot Camp. They are in my MBA dowload/drivers folder and on a USB thumb drive. But the VMWare install won't look at either. It only wants to look in 3 places.
A: floppy drive (haven't had one in many years)
CD drive D: VMWare tools (which is no help at all)
Boot X: drive

Windows On Mac :: Does OS X Install Disc Have 64 Bit Drivers?
Today is the day I get my new 09 Quad - very exciting! I have a copy of Vista Business 64bit, which I want to run because of the extra ram I'll have in that beast of a thing. Up until now I've just been using the other comps in my sig, and from what I've heard it's hard to get 64bit windows working in Boot Camp. But are there 64 bit drivers on the Leopard install disc to make this a bit more pain free?

Windows On Mac :: Cannot Install Drivers (XP Pro 32bit)
I've successfully installed windows professional 32bit onto my mac computer with bootcamp. When I insert my OS10.5 Leopard cd's into the computer windows will not detect the CD's. These are original CD's after trying to get it to work for a few mins I came up with an idea. I downloaded the 2.1 mac drivers from apple @ [URL]. I then burned the drivers onto a cd and then rebooted into windows. After copying the drivers from the cd to my harddrive, I tried to install the drivers that I had downloaded but nothing happens. I can see in the taskmanager that the BCUpdateXP.exe runs for a few seconds then does nothing. The mac is an iMac 8.1, intel core 2 duo, 2.66ghz, 2gb ram. The leopard cd's work when running the mac under Mac OSx 10.5.8 which would mean the cd's should be fine.

Windows On Mac :: Unable To Install Win7 Drivers
So I've finally got all the partitions sorted out from my previous OS setup, and go to install Windows 7. Partway through the setup (just after asking language) it asks for CD/DVD drivers. Okay, I'll try eject the disk. Nope, eject key not working. So I can't put the disk with all the drivers in. I'll copy the drivers to my external HDD. When I browse for them, I am told there's nothing there. So, I don't know. I can't install the drivers it would seem (unless someone can find the CD/DVD drivers for windows?) and therefor cannot continue with the installation because it wont let me click next until these damn drivers are installed. Windows 7 64 bit, by the way.

Windows On Mac :: Bootcamp Drivers Won't Install With XP?
1. New 11" macbook air. Set up partition for Windows XP SP2 using bootcamp. Prior to the Windows install I made the bootcamp driver install DVD per the instructions.

2. Windows installed fine. In Windows, went to install the bootcamp drivers from DVD I made and get this message: "bootcamp requires that your computer is running windows 7" And then I can't install the drivers.

Is there a limitation to running Windows 7 only?

Windows On Mac :: No Drivers - XP Not Recognizing OSX Install Disc
So I installed xp via bootcamp just fine. One problem; no drivers! I inserted the OSX install DVD in, xp did not recognize it. Under 'properties' it said it was a blank cd with 0 megabytes on it and 0 megabytes of storage. If I opened the DVD there was nothing there. I did get this CD from someone else, it is the 'official' OSX Snow Leopard DVD copied onto another cd, but theoretically everything is there. I am running a non unibody macbook pro 15", might I be able to download these drivers elsewhere?

Windows On Mac :: Can't Install BootCamp Drivers On 7 64Bit?
I've installed Windows 7 64 Bit. I tried installing Boot Camp from the Leopard DVD and it gets to the part where its trying to run the service KeyAgent but it fails. This is the message I get.

"Service 'KeyAgent' (KeyAgent) failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services."

I've tried running it in compatibility mode for Vista and made sure to have it set as run as Administrator. I also download BootCamp 2.1 for Windows Vista 64 but it wont even start. I also did the Compatibility mode and administrator for it.

Windows On Mac :: Finding Install Boot Camp 3 Drivers?
I installed Windows 7 on a Mac Pro 09 and now I�m not sure if I really need the Boot Camp 3 drivers or not. It�s just installed for games and 3D Software. I don�t have an USB iSight, obviously, and don�t need the media function keys of the keyboard nor I use the Mighty Mouse. Also I don�t need iDisk access HFS+ access or Bonjour and what so ever. I mostly run OSX anyway.

So, would it work if I just install the Chipset drivers, Audio, Ethernet and graphics card drivers if I find them?

Or do the Boot Camp drivers have special stuff which I absolutely need?

Windows On Mac :: Install Win7 Now Or Wait For New Apple Drivers?
Since Apple is releasing new Bootcamp drivers sometimes within the next couple of months, should I wait for it, and only install Win 7 in Bootcamp then? Or will it be pretty much the same if I install it now, and simply update Bootcamp when the time comes? What I mean is, could the current drivers have any adverse effect on the installation of Windows 7? If so I would rather not install now. But if not, I might as well install it now and just update the Bootcamp drivers once Apple releases them - will it be the same?

Windows On Mac :: Cannot Install Drivers On Win7 Ultimate 64bit
I'm trying to install Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit on my late 2008 MacBook Pro and everything went smoothly until it came time for me to pop in my Snow Leopard disk and install the drivers. When I put the disk in I get a window called "Install Assistant" that has two options: "Remote Install Mac OS X" for MacBook Air computers and "DVD or CD Sharing" again for MacBook Air computers. This doesn't seem right. Shouldn't I get a window that lets me install the necessary drivers for Windows 7? I've also tried my 10.5 Leopard disk with the same result. I have also tried downloading the BootCamp 3.1 update, but when I attempt to install it I receive a message telling me that in order to install Boot Camp 3.1 I need to have BootCamp 3.0 or higher.

Windows On Mac :: Can't Install Bootcamp Drivers On Vista X64?
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.
