I get to the screen in BootCamp Assistant where it asks me to download the specific software for my Mac that is designed to support Windows. I select the download option and it tells me, "download could not continue. The Windows support software is not available."

I do have the original install disks, so i just checked that option and continued. Is this what is causing my problems? Should I be doing something with this disk now at this point? Is this why my USB keyboard and the built-in keyboard are not working during the install of Windows?

Thanks,
Joe

    When you get to the screen where you can choose to download or to continue one since you alreay have the Boot Camp drivers, choose that option. The download opetion does not work and it only started showing on that screen as a choice in either 10.6.5 or 10.6.7 and there is no need for it. If you have the disc that has Mac OS X 10.6.x Snow Leopard OS on it (not the Application disc that has iLife on it) then you can get the drivers there or you can download the drivers for Apple and safe them to a flash drive, but you need to install 3.1 before you can install version 3.2

    Also do not install Service Pack 1 if it did not come with your Windows disc. It will cause Apple hardware to not work at all.
