I have installed Windows 7 on my Mac (running 10.5 Leopard) using Boot Camp.

Windows 7 is functioning half decent but some features are not working such as wireless. When I try to install the drivers from the CD it says that it only works with Windows XP and Vista.

How can I install the Boot Camp drivers if I don't have Mac OS 10.6?

You confuse the device (a Mac) with the operating system (Mac OS X). – Daniel Beck Dec 29 '10 at 22:15

Go to the CD files from the Computer menu.

Locate the Setup File it may easily be called Setup.exe.

Right click -> and go to the Compatability Tab. Choose compatability for Windows Vista.

Alternatively you can right click the Setup.exe and click Troubleshoot Compatability...

Hope this helps.

The Vista drivers should work with Windows 7, and it's just the point of getting past the version checker on the Boot Camp installer. – user3463 Dec 30 '10 at 2:17
