I bought Snow Leopard so I could upgrade to 3.0, so I upgraded. I checked in the utilities, and I'm showing I have 3.0. I downloaded the 3.1 upgrade, and I'm getting an error message in Windows XP saying I have to upgrade to 3.0 first.

 

I am doing this so I can load Windows 7. According to the Apple site, I need Bootcamp 3.1.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.3)

    You don't upgrade OS X

     

    You can't upgrade to 3.1 until AFTER you installed 3.0.4 driver

     

    If you want Windows 7 then forget using XP.

     

    Re-read the guide.

     

    3.1 came out after Windows 7. 3.0.4 came out before it was tested on Windows.

    your SL DVD has when you are in Windows Apple Setup.exe aka "boot camp" a term over used and often misleading.

     

    3.0.4 is what is provided for Windows 7

    that is what first gets installed after Windows is installed

     

    The only way to get from XP to Windows 7 is a DVD with Windows 7, a reformat and clean install

     

    Windows 7 HP 32 or 64-bit System Builder is $99

     

    The manual or guide, the FAQ, the how to and support articles:

    www.apple.com/support/bootcamp

     

    Don't make it so complicated. i'm not.

    Hi guys,

    I have the same AChar's problem,

     

    I have Snow Leopard with bootcamp 3.0. I downloaded the 3.1 upgrade, and I'm getting an error message in Windows7 saying I have to upgrade to 3.0 first.

     

    I guess I need to install the "3.0.4 driver", that is stored in the Snow Leopard CD, I don't have it, does anyone can extract from there and share?

     

    thanks in advance
