Greetings,

 

I'm trying to figure out how to get around this problem...

 

I have the late 2008 Macbook 2.4ghz with Lion Installed. I have installed Windows (64bit) via Bootcamp giving it a 102gb partition. Installation goes fine. When I load into Windows and attempt to install the BootCamp drivers/software, I keep getting the 'Unsupported on this model' error. All of the forum posts I'm finding talk about using the actual discs but I do not have access to these. I did purchase Lion, but via the AppStore. My Macbook was bought used online and didn't include any discs.

 

Would it be possible to find an ISO of the discs, virtually mount, and run the formal fix in this way? If so, what versions of what discs do I need to search for? I have Windows (32bit) available as well, if there is a different workaround that way... I don't really care. I do have 8gb of RAM installed and I know 32bit won't recognize it all; but as long as it'll read at least 3-4, I don't mind. I'm not a total computer noob, but I am some-what of a Mac noob. I just want to get the Bootcamp stuff installed.

 

Any help, pointers, re-links, would be appreciated!
