Nope, I keep reading everywhere about this "magic" drivers CD, but the truth of a matter is, I have done everything that Mac/Bootcamp have promted me to do, prit some kind of uselsess CD/DVD, out of which I couldn't install anything and call it a day. If you know anything about it , please let me know. Thanks in advance!
And of course I had install all the Windows updates, upgrades and whatever, the magic mouse and Apple Keyboard still don't work as they should. But they've been partially recognized by Windows.

Wait, wait, wait... That was a very important part of the instillation. That is what contains all the necessary drivers to run your Apple peripherals in BootCamp. I suggest creating a USB version instead of a CD version since that didn't go so well, make sure you install them off the USB flash drive into Windows, them reboot, you should be good to go. Installing Windows updates won't install drivers it'll only install updated security, and patches.

Coander15, thanks a lot for your help and support, I really appreciate this!
Is there an article on how to create that USB you're talking about in a light of Windows being already installed on this machine, and also do you know how much space do I need on my USB drive ? Thanks again!

Here is the BootCamp manual PDF: http://manuals.info.apple.com/en/Boot_Camp_Install-Setup_10.7.pdf

Thanks, I think I've done it right this time and have the bootcamp tools installed off the DVD I have printed from bootcamp/ However, it did help only partially, as i can see the numeric portion of the keyboard is not always seen by Windows , espicially while entering data in excel for some reason and the scrolling functions in magic mouse are not exactly the same. Should I try and tweak it more or this is the best it can do for me at this point? Thanks a lot again for supporting me!
