I quite frankly tired of having to burn a CD every time I want to install windows Vista on my mac, so for convieniance I will post every driver that is needed for vista that comes with the CD.

MODS: If I am violating anything feel free to PM and/or remove the stuff

EDIT: It would seem that the max upload is 2 mb. While this is fine form most things, the realtek and the sigmaTel sound drivers are both 20 MB. So unless they somehow up the max upload, sound guys are out of luck

If you have a USB stick, external hard drive or memory card handy, you can copy the drivers from the Boot Camp application to that. Just control/right-click on the Boot Camp application and select Show Package Contents. From there go to Contents > Resources and open DiskImage.dmg. Copy the files from this disk image to a folder on your external device. Just be sure the external device is FAT32 formatted so that Windows can read it!

Trackpad driver added! For some reason I can't edit my first post. So I guess drivers will be down the thread as time goes on.

The aapltctp[trackpad] driver doesn't work for me when I try to install it:

The folder you specified doesn't contain a compatible software driver for your device. If the folder contains a driver, make sure it is designed to work for Windows 32 bit systems.

I am getting that exact same error on my MacBook. In device manager/HID-Devices, I have disabled every driver in there, but none of them disabled the built in trackpad. Any help would be great, because Vista especially NEEDS a right click.

Don't you feel stupid when you post a question on a form, and answer it yourself 30 seconds later...

Anyway, I had been receiving an error message every time I tried to install the aapltctp driver. This is because I was trying to install it on the wrong device. On my MacBook, the driver for the trackpad was not located in HID devices, but in USB controllers. Go to Device Manager/Universal Serial Bus controllers. One driver listed was a USB Human Interface device. I opened the driver update dialogue, and was presented a choice of "USB Human Interface Device" or "Apple Trackpad". So I installed the Apple drivers on this device, and presto, I have a scrolling, right-clicking, Vista Ultimate running, MacBook.

Yes there is a beta driver being tested ( i've sucessfully used media center with no problems)

http://forum.insanel...showtopic=39172

TIP: Once you installed the driver, tell MacIR.exe to run on startup (startup folder in start menu)

When I try and install the apple drivers for the trackpad, vista tells me the best drivers are already installed.

Any ideas?
