When trying to install Win 7 in Boot Camp 4.0.1 on my Mid 2010 Macbook Pro running Lion 10.7.3, I get an error saying the drivers are not on the CD/DVD.  Any suggestions?  Where can I get these drivers?  Note that I will need to install them on a USB b/c you can't eject the Win disc.

    During the process you are offered the opportunity to download the drivers/support software to be saved on an external device such as a usb stick.

     

    Follow the instructions in the installation guide http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/boot_camp_install-setup_10.7.pdf. The guide describes how to download and save the drivers/support software.

    Hmm interesting. Maybe you should try to re-install it over again, as you may have missed an earlier step there. Re-read the manual carefully.

    Also, what version of windows 7 are you trying to install? Premium, ultimate, starter... Did you buy this from a store, or did you download an iso from somewhere such as DreamSpark (Microsoft's distribution for education).
