    Hi, I'm thinking of installing windows on my mac when i get it next year from school, what i know is that we dont get the OS X Disc that comes in the box, and in Bootcamp you need the OS X disc


    is there another way to install the mac drivers on windows without using the disc? and i dont wanna torrent.

    You don't need the disc.

    It's just recommended that you do.

    Cause if you don't, your trackpad, scrolling, etcetera won't work properly.

    You can take the computer in to your nearest Apple store and ask for them.

    Do they do it for free because I got an apple store 10 mins away from me.



    edit: no use for me buying anything as the mac i got is free.

    They should, if you can prove that you bought it, or if you got it as a gift or whatever with Apple's student program.

    Just say "Hi, I'd like the driver disk for my Mac, I'm told that I need it to run Windows in BootCamp, and I'd really like the extra compatibility" or something like that.

    You can probably just buy the disk really cheap at the apple store.
