Firstly, I apologize if this topic of questioning has been addressed in a previous thread that I was not able to locate.
A friend of mine is a user of a late '07 MBP and is now, finally, wishing to install Windows on his machine in order that he apply for a job which lists a windows PC as a minimum requirement for hire. He had asked for my assistance with the bootcamp utility, but figured it out (mostly) on his own. That's the good news. Now, I too have a MBP (late '06) and also run windows on my machine. My experience, however, was of bootcamp when it was still a utility downloaded off of Apple's website rather than how it is now a component of OS X. Thus, when I installed bootcamp, my computer also had me burn a CD with drivers for windows XP, but when my friend most recently attempted this process, it simply instructed him to insert his copy of 10.6 into the optical drive and into Windows itself. Now, watching him do this, I observed how it prompted him that "no drivers were available" or something similarly obscure, despite the disc itself showing up as "OS X drivers."
I ask, then, for your assistance from a standpoint of relative ignorance, in appeal to assist my friend's economic situation. It is my understanding that Apple will not, and has never provided technical assistance with bootcamp procedures, and so you, AppleInsider forums, are my first and best recourse.
Thank you in advance for your time and knowledge.
