Maybe somebody can help me here. I installed Windows 7 on a friends 2011 Mac Mini via Bootcamp and installed Bootcamp 3.0 software on the Windows side then upgraded to 3.1. then to 3.2. Well most everything is working except I can't find a few of the drivers. They are the coprocessor, Ethernet controller and the SM Bus controller drivers. When I did this on my Macbook Pro all the drivers were there. Any idea how I find these? Odd that the Bluetooth and wireless drivers were there but not the others. I thought that Windows might find them online but no. Crying or Very sad

They will be on the system disk specific to the machine at purchase.

Windows 7 is using a generic video driver that won't fill in the whole monitor, does anybody know where I can get the right driver? I'm not sure what video chipset is used in a early 2011 MM, Nvidia maybe?

Confusing. 2011 Minis weren't released until about a week ago but on July 8th your question is in regards to a machine not released. So if it's not a 2011, the system disk that came with the machine are what you want. Your friend should find them and use them. Otherwise I would suggest going to a hackintosh site...which would be strange. All drivers live on that disk, but I guess its easier to do it the hard way?

Excuse me. I mean 2010. Must be living in the past.
