Welcome to the Apple Support Communities
The Mac OS X disc contains the Boot Camp drivers you need to make Windows to work correctly. I recommend you to buy the Snow Leopard disc, because if you don't have it, you won't be able to install the Boot Camp drivers on Windows 7 > http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC573/mac-os-x-106-snow-leopard
Is Snow Leopard 10.6 or higher?
What If I were to install windows Vista or XP? would I be able to do that without Snow Leopard?
On XP or Vista, Will the boot camp drivers install properly with a 10.5.7 disk if my current OS is 10.6.8?
1. As far as I know, with Mac OS X Leopard you can use Windows XP and Vista without any problem, but not Windows 7.
2. You can install the drivers provided with a 10.5.7 DVD on Windows XP and Vista if you have Mac OS X 10.6.8, but it's not recommended because you are using old drivers
I started Bootcamp and this popped up
But when I went to download the software I got this
I assume there is a downloadable version of the optimal drivers archived somewhere. I went to the bootcamp support site and searched "windows software support", but couldn't find anything.
I am worried about the warning, even though my disk is not "software downloaded for another Mac", or "on the installation disk that came with another Mac" I am worried that they actually mean to say don't use the installation disk that came with another OS, which is my situation.
I'm sorry if I keep asking the same questions over and over, I just don't want to mess up my computer and am afraid that if I click the "I have the Mac OS X ..." option I'll lose the other option
