    Just one more question: Where can I get bootcamp 3.0?

    Can I install win7 with bootcamp 2.1?
    Can I install win7 with bootcamp 3.0?

    Is win7 officially supported?
    Can I find win7 drivers for macbookpro 2006?

    The Bootcamp drivers are available legitimately ON either Leopard or Snow Leopard OSx installation discs

    Leopard has Bootcamp 2.0 onboard with update 2.1 downloaded whilst in Windows.
    (Update 2.1 requires 2.0 drivers to be already installed - so is NOT a standalone package)

    Snow Leopard has Bootcamp 3.0 onboard

    Thank you. That has fixed it for me.

    I had never managed to upgrade to Boot Camp 2.1 because I had already installed SP3. I thought that it was this that was causing me problems now, but when I went into the Device Manager and uninstalled all drivers for ¨display adapters¨ apart from ¨Radeon X1600¨ (I had one other called ¨mirror¨ something or other), then the installation went ahead without a hitch.

    Thanks again!

    I have xp sp3, the apple display drivers, and no logmein or vnc services install, and yet, I still can't upgrade to boot camp 3.0 (nor can I uninstall bootcamp services as I get a "fatal error"). When I try to install boot camp 3.0, I get the same error as the OP ""The installer encountered errors before Boot Camp could be configured. To try these operations at a later time, please run the installer again""

    I still haven't been able to fix this using the recommendations in this thread. Has anyone else run into this problem and found a solution?

    Nevermind. I fixed it the way others have. I had to delete a duplicate display driver from my device manager. All is well now. Thanks for the advice.

    I just wanted to chime in and thank you. I tried to find this fix for 2 days. Once I found your post it took me 2 minutes to eliminate the extra video and my problem was solved.

    Thank you. To any others following this thread, the fix is found at:
