Re: Installed vista on new macbook and found that drivers...
While operating in the windows mode, insert your mac os leopard disc and it should auto launch the program that will allow you to install all needed drivers and settings. The mac os disc will completely set up your computer in window... but let it run fully.. don't interrupt it.. this should set up for your wifi screen res etc... If you need help with printer drivers... download a copy of Bonjour from apple...it's free and it will find your printers and set it up for you! Way to go Mac... way to make windows work!

Hi. There are two steps. First the printer must be connected to the wireless network - see the installation instructions that came with the printer. The mac is not involved in this part. Until you get it done you will not be able to do anything else. Second. make sure you have the most up-to-date drivers for your printer installed on the Mac (this applies to any printer - not just your HP). Once the drivers are installed, go to System preferences and select "Print & Fax". and hen click on the + sign to add a new printer. Wait a moment or tweo and the printer's name should pop up. Click it's name then wait for the drivers to be identified - this can take several minutes so be patient. As it's an HP you will probably get a bonjour connection but a word of warning, I have had more trpouble getting Macs and HP ptinters to work reliably over WiFi than any other make.
The antennas in the Macbook Pros have had an issue with reception due to the aluminum housing of the laptop but, should still receive decent reception just not as much as a plastic Macbook or plastic PC laptop. It could be possible that the antenna's cables have become disconnected from the Airport Extreme card inside your Macbook Pro, that the card itself is faulty or damaged or that the Antennas themselves have been damaged in some way. As always make sure you have the latest updates and have installed any driver updates from Apple regarding your Airport Extreme card. Here's an article that may help eliminate any wireless interference that may be affecting your signal strength. Apple - Wireless Interference hope this helps, if so don't forget to comment, vote, etc. Thank you.
Hard drive is dead or the signal from the hard drive is not being read by the ide controller. I'm working on a MacBook 13 inch right now with the same issue. I had a spare hard drive and a windows Vista disc, so I installed the hard drive and inserted the vista install disc and the laptop loaded and installed Vista on the Mac with no issues. I took the hard drive from the Mac and attached an adapter to it and ran it through a usb on another laptop and the laptop could not read the files on the drive....so, the drive was bad.
Actually, what you have to get is the Vista version of the High Definition Audio Codecs fom Realtek .... http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsCheck.aspx?Langid=1&PFid=24&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3
Insert Leopard DVD for Boot Camp Drivers [if you know how to use torrents then download from here http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/3860505/BootCamp_2.0_(Leopard)_Windows_drivers] .
Don't auto-run the installer. Navigate to the drivers folder and there you find the individual .exe files files for each driver.
Right click on the RealTek driver and select 'troubleshoot installation'. Windows will ask you several questions, but basically the gist of it is to tell Windows that 'This driver used to work OK in Vista'.
You need drivers of boot camp on mac osx 10.5.4 dvd.then open Drivers folder, you will see RealTekSetup.exe right click then click to troubleshoot compability. A window will apper.You'll se Program Compability click next below. Select "the program worked earlier versions of windows but won't install or run nom." and click next. Realtek Setup will start and install drivers. solution is just this.Lemme know if this solved the problem...
Ok, so you commited the sacriledge of installing Windows on a Mac. Enough complaining... The Mac hardware is really tight to the Mac software. Some features of the Mac aren't understood by Vista (and XP for the matter). I ask myself if the F12 (eject cd) is working under Vista?
Boot camp was mainly for programs to work on the apple operating system, not for hardware to work. If you want to make it work on there you need to go on the internet to search for a driver to make it work.
