Hi,

is there any other way to get the necessary drivers than from the Leopard dvd, that I need for my Windows installation?

The thing is I got Leopard from the software central at my work, and it seems to be missing the drivers... When I insert that DVD and start Windows nothing happens and Explorer say there is nothing on the disk. (Other DVD's are working fine so that is not the problem.)

Should I be able to see the files on the DVD from OS X?

Is there any other way to get around this problem? (it's Friday evening and the guys at the software central don't come in on weekends)

Would it work with the drivers on the Tiger DVD?

Or should I just wait until Monday and go back and ask the guys for another Leopard DVD?

I would appreciate any help on this,
Veronica

    No, unless you have a windows virtual machine installed (parallels or fusion).

    "Would it work with the drivers on the Tiger DVD?"
    Tiger dvd does not have boot camp drivers.
    Drivers were part of the boot camp beta download.
    If you have a copy of the boot camp beta version drivers
    they will work just fine unless you need vista drivers. Boot
    camp beta only included xp drivers.

    try dvd in another pc (not a Mac-unless Mac has parallels installed). If you can see them copy setup.exe, folders and all to pc and then burn a cd with the copied driver set.

    Thank you very much! I was able to use drivers from Bootcamp Beta and now it works!
