That version of the Boot Camp Assistant doesn't support Windows 7, and no publicly available version of it supports Windows 8.

I have not been able to find a way to update my bootcamp(3.0.4) to 4.0. Any links to download the latest version. Any suggestions?

Boot Camp 4.0 is with 10.7 Lion. 10.6 has Boot Camp 3.0 which only runs Windows XP service pack 2 or Vista.

About Boot Camp Software Update 3.1 for Windows 32 bit

I just successfully installed Windows 8 on my iMac with almost the exact same specs. Big thing is to make sure that you partition the Hard Drive with Boot Camp. Next is to make sure you install the 32-bit Windows 8. I didn't have success with the 64-bit of Windows 7 so I tried the 32-bit Windows 8 and it worked like a charm.
