Currently Being ModeratedFeb 22, 2011 7:46 PM (in response to Hufi26)I'm having this same problem with the MacBook Pro I just purchased. The BootCamp utility won't burn the disk for the drivers. I click on "Burn" and nothing happens. I'm using Boot Camp Assistant 3.0.4 (322)15" MacBook Pro 2.66Ghz Intel i7, Mac OS X (10.6.6), 8G 1066 DDR 3
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 23, 2011 6:46 AM (in response to Hufi26)That method, introduced in 10.6.6 is totally broken, just ignore it as has everyone, nice idea but until then. And no Apple support read forums actually.
Insert your OS X DVD while running Windows, it has Boot Camp 3.0.x than go through the update process to 3.1 and then 3.2. Way too many steps and perils.
You can and might want to copy off the DVD to your hard drive; run from there, and backup to flash card as well.
3.1 and 3.2 can be downloaded but require a previous 3.0 be present.
Nothing is needed until Windows is running and updated itself anyway. You will want to add MS Security Essentials early on, and some drivers for wired network and other devices to get you operational.Mac Pro 8800GTX Corsair SSDs, Mac OS X (10.6.5), 3.2GHz 10K VelociRaptors Win7 GTX 460
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 23, 2011 8:43 AM (in response to Hufi26)I have already tried to use the OS X DVD, but when trying to install Boot Camp under Win7 (x64) a error message appears "Boot camp x64 is unsupported on this computer model"Mac Book Pro 13", Mac OS X (10.6.6)
Had you said that, I would have offered how to or that it has been answered dozens of times. Need to copy the folder/directory to a hard drive and just run BootCamp64.msi using Troubleshoot Compatibility Mode.

Was going to try your system anyways (what else is there to do!) but nice to see confirmation while waiting for Win 7 to install. As I recall this was the way to do it a couple of years ago anyways...from the original OSX install CD that came with the computer. Apple please fix this.
Oh, I know...file a bug report...sorry, don't have the time. You figure they'd hire a few QA people or at least hire an intern to scour the discussions..end of rant..Intel XServe, Mac OS X (10.6.6)
