    I've successfully partitioned my disc with Boot Camp, but the drivers need to be installed.

    I'm currently running Snow Leopard 10.6.4, and I have the installation disc. The problem is I can't run it. After finding out that my cd/dvd drive on my MacBook no longer works, I've realized that installing the drivers for Windows XP on my mac would be a little difficult.

    So I thought - maybe I should make an un-mountable version of that installation disc and put it on a USB, but that of course doesn't work because Windows wants to format it. I also tried to connect my laptop to my desktop's CD drive, but that failed miserably.

    I can't find anything on the apple.support website that allows me to download the drivers.

    Help please?

    Mount your installer disk on a PC
    Copy the setup and its folder to a USB flash drive, then transfer the flash drive to your Mac.
