I just purchased and installed Lion yesterday on my late 2008 macbook (aluminum unibody macbook5,1 Core2Duo 8GB Ram). I then installed Win 7 64-bit professional without any problems, but when I ran the windows support software from BC 4.0, I received the message: "x64-bit unsupported on this computer model." I previously had the same Win7n 64-bit installed on snow leopard without any problems using bootcamp 3.2 (I might have had to do the compatibility trick to get the x64 bit drivers to install). So is there a way to force install the BC 4.0 x64bit drivers? Maybe BC 3.2 usable with Lion?... I have to imagine someone else ran into this same problem, any ideas or solutions would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
You can and need to allow Windows Update, depending when etc or new, even post-SP1 which was 800MB (9GB temp space needed) there are still a lot more.
The Boot Camp Assistant thing "Download to CD" has NEVER EVER worked. And hugely disappointed it is still the same. That "ahem, FEATURE" was first present in 10.6.6, that is 9 months with no acknowledgement or support article or explanation - which also triggers and generates 100s posts and threads as to what/why and what to do.
If you have SL DVD, if you have Boot Camp 3.0.x and either have or just go ahead and update to boot camp 3.2 then.
And of course nothing here either, all of which tell me, someone didn't prepare the good old documentation.
