I either lost or never received a drivers CD when i bought my iMac, but i installed Vista with boot camp and now cannot use the internet, hear sound, play games (graphics card isn't installed) or anything! Where can I make a new CD to use to download the drivers needed for my iMac 24 inch os X?? BTW, it has 4 gigs of ram, not sure if you need that info and it's dual core. A quick reply would be nice cause i need to use this for work soon! Thanks

p.s, why can't I instal XP in bootcamp?? I tried, but when i reached the blue screen that says "press ennter to continue, r to repair, and escape to exit" the keyboard stops working and I am unable to continue.

iMac 24 inch, i love xp, vista *****

    Hi and welcome to Discussions,

    Apple provides the BootCamp Driver on the Mac OSX install DVD that came with your Mac.
    After the installation of Windows insert that DVD while in WIndows and the Driver Setup should start automatically.

    If you don't have the OSX DVD anymore you can call Apple and ask for a replacement.
    Or you can go into the nearest store and buy a Mac OSX Snow Leopard install DVD for about 30 USD.

    XP is supported with BootCamp as long as it a XP SP2 or SP3 32-bit retail or SystemBuilder version and not manufacturer-branded.

    OK, i got the snow leopard cd, but when i put it in the computer, it only gives me options to install some sort of "remote disk utility" and something to do with my CD drive. After that, the sound still doesn't work. (ps, im using windows 7 ultimate now. just installed it this morning)
