Boot Camp update adds full support for Windows 7

updated 05:10 pm EST, Tue January 19, 2010

iMac and Mac Pro firmware and drivers also revised

Apple has released several Boot Camp and firmware updates designed for 64-bit or 32-bit versions of Windows 7. Boot Camp 3.1 adds full support for Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, and Ultimate. The update addresses issues involving trackpads and the red LED for digital audio, while the company's wireless keyboard and Magic mouse are also now supported. For users planning to transition from Windows Vista to 7, a separate utility ensures that the Macintosh volume will safely unmount on Vista.

Along with the Boot Camp updates, Apple also released a graphics firmware update for iMacs and Mac Pros running Windows 7. The download is recommended for NVIDIA's GeForce 7300, 7300 GT, 7600 GT, or Quadro FX 4500 components. Users can also download a driver package for the iMacs released late last year.

[Boot Camp (64-bit) Download - 275MB] [Boot Camp (32-bit) Download - 381MB] [Vista to 7 Utility Download - 380KB] [Graphics Firmware Download - 1.2MB] [iMac Drivers Download - 104MB]

    Magic Mouse works, but still problems

    After about 10 minutes of network usage (such as Slingbox or streaming Web), the network adapter forgets its IP address. Using Win7 x64 Ultimate's Network & Sharing Center fixes it, and it's fine from then on. It did this before the update and continues to exhibit this behavior.

    Computer = early 2009 Mac Mini bootcamped with Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
