Installing drivers on this mac

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My buddy has this 27 inch mac. It has an Hd4850 4 gigs of ram and an intel core I5. We had windows XP on it that i installed through bootcamp and it installed all the drivers automatically.

But we just installed windows vista from that copy of XP and for some reason i cant seem to get any of the drivers to work. the CCC install manager said that the drivers were installed correctly but apparently they werent, because its not detecting it in the device manager, and i cant change the resolution to the native of 2560x1440.

Also, the sound drivers are installed, but im not getting any sound? But ive also noticed that bootcamp isnt running, so is there any specific thing i need to download that will install all the drivers for me? Or what? Im kind of stumped right now and id really appreciate any help you guys can give me. Thanks OCN

It absolutely has to be installed through bootcamp - unfortunately even though it may use the same "hardware" as drivers that you are able to download, they aren't, it is specific to that mac and must use drivers supplied through bootcamp
