    okay so I opened the drivers folder and apple folder and it showed me all the apple drivers individually. I installed all of them manually and repaired the drivers but I still dont see apple updater.

    I tried downloading the update but it says I need version 3.1 to update and when I download that update it says I need 3.0. I have version 2.0 right now.

    Sorry but I noticed that we haven't once mentioned what version of Windows you are using? If you have installed XP or Vista, this hotfix might resolve your issue once and for all:

    You need Mac OS X 10.6.x DVD with Boot Camp 3.0.

     

    then you can upgrade to 3.1 and 3.2.

     

    3.0+ is needed for Windows 7

     

    2.x was from Leopard and support for older XP/Vista

    After being puzzled with what people were writing and all obvious it seemed to be to them,

    I figured out what to do:

     

    - Launch Boot Camp Assistant

    - When asked whether you have the Install Discs or want to download the Windows support files,

      choose DOWNLOAD i.e the first option

    - When asked where to write the files, choose whether you want to burn them to a CD/DVD or store it

      on a different volume (like a USB key, or an external hard drive).

    - Then go to the Windows side (for me it means to launch Parallels and start my virtual machine)

      and get it to read your CD, USB key or wherever you've burned the files

    - Navigate through the files on that CD or USB key, I believe into the directory called Bootcamp

      and double-click on the files corresponding to each driver you want to install; if your Windows is 64-bit

      you have to go one level deeper in the Bootcamp directory, I think the subdirectory is called x64

    - If desired, you can then download updates 3.1 and 3.2 and apply them to your new Bootcamp nstallation

    If you aren't running Windows natively and only in a VM, then nothing about Boot Camp applies. And you should be asking on Parallels forum.

     

    if you were using Parallels, you left that out.

     

    Most Windows updates should be run natively in a dual boot to work.

    Thanks for the pointer about the Parallels forum.

     

    And, silly me, I noticed last night that the download is in every point identical to the install disk that came with my iMac. Moreover although the installer says that it was successful, the drivers did not actually take effect and I still have the same problem as before.

     

    And there does not seem to be a way to edit or remove my previous post.

    I found out that when you install Windows 7 on the Bootcamp partition, there is

    an item called "Drive Options" or something like this that you can select that

    will give you the chance to format the partition. Then everything will work,

    i.e. the installation itself and the driver installation. For the latter, you need

    to go in the Bootcamp folder on the disk and double-click on Setup.
