I have an unusual setup - any help would be appreciated.


Mac Pro 2,1 (2006), original Vista 64 bit install on HD2 formatted NTFS since upgraded to Windows 7 64 bit. Boot Camp drivers 2.x added after install for Mac peripherals. Keyboard and mice including magic Mouse worked fine.


Windows 7 (64 bit) boots and runs fine in this setup. Mac OS 10.7.x installed on HD1 and 10.6.8 installed in HD3, all boot and run fine.


Apple Magic Trackpad is recognized as a Bluetooth device under Windows 7 but won't pair or function. I have downloaded Windows drivers for the trackpad and extracted them using 7Zip, but they fail to install with a "not supported on this system" message. Similarly, I can't upgrade my Boot Camp drivers from 2.x with an error message (wrong) "a later version of Boot Camp is installed on this system".


Having to use a wired mouse is annoying. Any ideas?

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3)
