Gday all,

Ive got a question that I cant seem to find an answer too. Ive got a mid 2009 20" iMac and Im going to run windows 7 in boot camp for study. Whats I would like to know is will windows detect my airport wifi card in my Mac as I have a wireless network. Also I believe all the drivers used to be in the OSX install discs. Is this still the case with Snow Leopard?

Thanks for your help.

Yes and Yes.

That's how my iMac is connected to my network via wifi, and using XP via Parallels or Bootcamp, I can access the network no worries.

The Bootcamp install of Windows will use the Apple hardware asa normal PC.
You need to use the OSX install disc to install the drivers as the last step when installing Bootcamp - after Windows has finished loading.

Have a read of this Knowledge Base article (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1461) before you start

Furthermore, all the iMac devices will work in Windows7, the iSight, Bluetooth, the in-built mic etc. Be sure to apply the Bootcamp 3.1 update too because your install disk will be v3.0
