    My computer woes never end... I've solved all the problems on my Mac side, now, onto Windows....

    I just bought a brand new copy of Windows 7 64-bit. I installed it fine, but when I insert the OS X CD for drivers, I get a message that says "Bootcamp x64 is not supported" I went into the Disc and tried to run "Bootcamp64", but it tells me I need to run it through "setup.exe". Since I'm not familiar with Windows, I'm a bit lost here. Does anyone know what to do?

    I got around this by using the Windows 7 install disk to reformatted the Bootcamp partition to NTFS. I can't remember where I say to do that on the net But it seem to work and I can use my retail 10.6 disk to install the drivers.
    Ii decided to do this because of of work VPN issues.

    I use (on Windows 7 64) MacDrive and on 10.6 I use NTFS-3G 2010.8.8 to shares disks and things between the two partitions, in side my Mac. Plus if you take your Mac to work the NTFS-3G might come in handy for 10.6.
