    Hoop the new driver will solve the current problems I have.
    - mounting Bootcamp to Parallels

    I will do the fallowing steps
    Delete Windows
    Uninstall Bootcamp 1.2
    Install Bootcamp 1.3
    Install Windows XP
    Backup Bootcamp image
    mount to Parallels

    Then theres no reason.

    Boot camp drivers are for just that.


    Boot camp.

    Parallels is NOT boot camp.

    Are you still having problems loading your boot camp partition in parallels?
    I'm stuck there at the moment.

    if you just want the latest drivers from the latest release of Boot Camp, you can do the following:
    * Download Boot Camp from Apple's website
    * Install as normal.
    * Locate the Boot Camp Assistant icon in utilities, right click (or ctrl-click for single button mice) on it and select "show package contents".
    * In the finder window that opens, double click on contents, then double click on resources.
    * Right or ctrl-click on the diskimage.img file and select "open with -> disk utility".
    * Insert a blank cd, and burn the diskimage.dmg file to create the updated windows driver cd.


    What kind of problems are you guys having with boot camp/parallels?

    The reason I want them is that they have updated international keyboard layouts. The ones in parallels do-not work correctly for UK macbooks.

    International keyboards for UK users are still broken BTW Bootcamp 1.3b. I use:

    to custom edit Apples mappings to add # key support. It is pretty ridiculous that Apple is still incapable of fixing this...

    Device drivers are going to be different in Boot Camp and Parallels because the devices themselves are accessed differently in a virtual machine/shared OS environment vs. exclusively in Windows. That is why there is a custom boot into Windows for Safari and a different custom boot for Boot Camp. Installing the latest version of Boot Camp must be done by burning a CD from the Boot Camp Assistant program in your Utilities folder (after you download and install the latest 1.3 beta from Apple). You then boot into Boot Camp directly (by restarting your Mac and holding down the option key) and install the new drivers from the CD after you get to the Windows desktop. But remember, those drivers only get accessed while you are booting directly into Boot Camp. Parallels uses its own drivers for your hardware to interact with Windows as a virtual machine.

    But keyboard mappings aren't drivers...

    I've fixed mine by finding a premade mapping on a blog somewhere.
