Hi guys,

 

I have been facing some problems since yesterday trying to download the windows support software drivers for my windows 7 installation on my Macbook Air. The error message i encountered is always "Can't download Windows Support Software because of a network problem."

 

However, there is a alternative manual download that you guys can use.

 

Head down to http://swscan.apple.com/content/catalogs/others/index-lion.merged-1.sucatalog and use the browser search function  to find the link to "BootCampESD.pkg" and use the link download that package and enjoy your windows 7 drivers for Macbook Air. You can check the date to check which is the lastest.

 

P.s. I am not sure if this works with mac mini boot camp 4 or any other but if it works for you guys post your success stories here!

 

The direct link to the current lastest BootCampESD.pkg : http://swcdn.apple.com/content/downloads/54/25/041-0707/2VPHmdxTTJW2yYdy3qHCChmQ PH5dn74pbR/BootCampESD.pkg (2011-07-20)

 

Hope it helps those who have a hard time are looking for the Windows 7 drivers for Macbook Air like i did.

 

Cheers!

MacBook Air
