Boot Camp on hackintosh

First of all I'm not sure if I posted my question in the right place, but here you get my problem.

I got an Apple USB Keyboard with numeric keys, just like this one: http://img.diytrade....del_MB110LL.jpg

only difference is that mine is build to work with Lion.

Now the problem is that I can't get it to work probably in Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit, so I thought maybe installing Boot Camp could solve the problem, but I can't find Boot Camp 3.0 for download. The second reason that I want to install Boot Camp is that the time in Windows isn't correct. and if I change it the time isn't correct in Mac.

I have tried installing Boot Camp 3.1 for 64-bit Windows, but it says that I have to install Boot Camp 3.0 to install 3.1.

I have found the keyboard driver separately in a thread here at insanelymac, but when trying to install it says that it didn't recognize an apple keyboard.

Does anyone have a solution for correcting the time, and also fixing the apple keyboard in Windows, as I really want to use the function keys in Windows too.

On Windows, run Regedit and set





Reboot and set the time in Windows.


Your BIOS clock will be "wrong" (it's now UTC - don't adjust it) but time will stay the same between Windows and OS X.


I can't find a Bootcamp installer on the Apple website, only Bootcamp updates. I believe bootcamp is on your retail OS X DVD or App store Lion install package somewhere.


Avoid installing Bootcamp, it installs a ton of {censored} that you don't need. I believe there is a post around here somewhere with details on how to extract and install Apple keyboard/Magic Mouse support only. Of course the next problem is how you would extract and install only the latest keyboard driver from the latest Bootcamp update.
