Hi Dears,
I have formatted my windows vista on my imac20" and I installed windows Vista again but I found that I don't have sound in the system and the video quality became worse than before, and I can't type in arabic, So I need all the drivers for it to work again as before,
sound, video, keyboard ( I have Multilingual keyboard Arabic & English ),
and what ever drivers you guys think that I will need..

Thanx & Regards

imac 20", Windows Vista, windows vista on mac leopard

    If you could help with some links to download the drivers or to provide with instructions that would be great.

    Apple only adds drivers to partition and install Windows.

    Windows Ultimate (Vista/7) has and allows use of all languages.

    But I still can't hear sounds or type in Arabic, do I have to finish all the windows updates to have the sound??

    I think it's driver issue,

    My macOS is working fine, I have this issue only when I log in to windows vista which I have installed on my imac20"

    Well, you are somewhat on your own when it comes to Windows - on any system - sometimes you do need to find drivers for your PC and chipset.

    Even on Mac, you need to install RealTek drivers yourself, though Windows 7 is more complete and reduces the need to find things yourself most of the time.

    Has nothing to do with what is going on in Mac OS side.

    Try http://www.guru3d.com as a start and Windows Vista forums.

    Thanx for the help but the answer was from the store where I bought my mac from..

    They told me after I install windows on the mac I have to insert the first mac os x disc and install the apple support software which included there and every thing now is working fine and perfect.

    You can find people here, where even AFTER installing Apple hardware support, they still had audio problems; needed graphic drivers.

    Glad it works fine, I'd reserve "perfect." Boot Camp 3 has trouble with the AppleHFS if you look around.

    I've heard so many stories of support advice, and I doubt unless they work with BootCamp and Windows on Mac fulltime they know all the ins-outs.

    64-bit versions of Vista/7 are still not getting Apple official support. Have to see if the newest iMac changes that, would be a crime, now that it can easily be outfitted with such niceties as 8GB, better graphics, Core i5/i7.
