I have new iMac(iMac13,1 i5) and I use Boot Camp to download driver.

 

Only can download Win 7 x64 driver. I have any method to download Win 7 x32 driver?


iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    You will need to install the 64bit version of Windows, support for 32bit in Boot Camp has ended.

    Your computer is 64 bit

    New programs are 64 bit

    32 bit Windows can't use all your ram if you have more than about 3.5GB of ram

    64 bit Windows runs 32 bit programs

     

    Why would you want to install 32 bit Windows?

    After installing the windows 8 do not run boot camp from setup, but install the individual driver from the windows support folder. Do not install the programme, driver in NVIDIA folder instead delete this folder and download new one from NVIDIA Site some thing like 310 in its name and install. After restarting run windows support folder setup file but only after deleting the NVIDIA folder only.  Every thing works. The culprit is the NVIDIA folder in the windows support folder.
