Well aint that a bitch.. it took me TWO days to find out a ridiculously simple fix.. and while searching, i found super complicated fixes like using 'Test compatibility' mode, torrents, patched installers..YIKES!!
The solution is SIMPLICITY ITSELF
Dont! use the SETUP.EXE. that opens up in autorun after you put in the CD.. (& you DID know that Bootcamp is on a windows partition on the MacOSX install CD, didn't you.. i sure didn't ;-)
Shut down that setup program.. open up the CD in explorer and navigate to BOOTCAMP/DRIVERS/APPLE/.. Double click on the program BOOTCAMP64.MSI
now provided you've got a machine that can run Snow Leopard in the first place , and this would be any of the Core 2 Duo machines onwards ..it should then also run 64bit windows..... (Remember, Snow Leopard itself is a 64 bit OS) then your "Cookin with Gas" ...."We are cooking" as John Lee use to love to say......
If this helped LET ME KNOW!!!
I sure don't want anyone else to stress out over this like I did... ;-)
