I've been scouring through varies websites - and I can't seem to find a method that can help me.


I have a late 2006 MacBook Pro (Core 2 Duo). I would like to install Windows 7 on BootCamp - however I am running Lion.


I did this once before in Snow Leopard. I purchased a digital copy of Win 7 from Microsoft - received my disc in the mail and I had to make changes to the disc (I can't recall why - but my Mac was not able to boot from the Disc) and was able to install Win 7 with no problems.


Everything seems different in Lion.


I have tried to downoad this Windows Support sotware off bootcamp to a USB key but I receive a message saying the is not available from the Software Update server (this has been going on for 2 days now).


Secondly, will my original Win 7 disc work? Or do I also need to make changes to the files to allow my Mac to boot from it?
