I have OS X installed on my 27" iMac and want to dual boot with Windows 7. I installed rEFit and then installed Windows 7. Now I need the drivers that normally get installed with Boot Camp Assistant. Does anybody know where to find them? I can't find them on Apple's site.

They are on one of the installation disks that comes with your iMac. Also, I'm pretty sure the drivers get installed if you download and run a "Bootcamp Software Update for Windows" from Apple's support site. They are usually 200MB or up downloads that come packed with drivers for windows, so give it a try in case you can't find your cds.

I found them on the Apple Disc, but the software updater did not work! :) – 2by Sep 30 '11 at 20:39
It would be nice with a download though, but i dont think it exists – 2by Sep 30 '11 at 20:40
Well, the link I posted takes you to the download in Apple's support page :) I suggest you give it a try :P – kevin9794 Oct 1 '11 at 3:05

They should be on the installer file for Windows that is linked on this Apple Support article. If your Windows is 64-bit, then check out this article. Hope this helps.
