    I'm interested in using a separate Win Boot Disk rather than Boot Camp, but how do you go about having the correct graphics driver?

    Another point, I was unable to get Firecoder Blu to be accessed from its software although it was recognised together with its driver in the Windows Device Manager. Has anyone managed to get it recognised? I'm using a 2011 quad core MacPro.

    Otherwise I've had no problems with E.6 on the MacPro.

      Graphics driver for Windows?

      Just download it for the manufacturer. I have been updating all my windows drivers like that since 2008.
      For the ATI cards I go to AMD windows downloads select my card presto New drivers.

          What Steve is saying is absolutely correct, I have updated the drivers on 2 MacPro's from standard Win7/Vista 64 drivers from the ATI/AMD site. Besides, Win7 installs most of the drivers anyway. Although I don't use bootcamp, I believe the package comes with Win drivers, and the latest one has newer drivers. Macs use a very limited amount of graphic cards, it really isn't that hard to find the right driver. If you know what version of the MacPro you are using, you can find out it's component list, and just find the equivalent Win drivers for it's system hardware and components. Remember, it is basically a very well designed Intel PC.

          Cheers.

          Dave.

            I have done this on 2 Mac pro's for 3 years and don't have any issue.
            If you use Windows it is just a pc that's why windows update can update the drivers.
            Also run the Intel update utility to let it check if everything Intel inside has the latest drivers.

            Did you check your directx install?

              I have a 3 year old MAC pro, with bootcamp running Windows 7 and MACs. I have them on separet drives as everyone else suggest. After installing Windows put in the install disc for MAC OSX and it will actually have some drivers for Windows which you should install. It will also install some software that lets you read MAC format discs in Windows.

              If I install Windows on the same drive as MAC o/s I have problems making and restore images of either o/s. Separate drives works better. Rebooting from MAC o/s to PC o/s takes as long as shutting down the machine and starting it again.
              Using Windows 7 64 bit not XP. I do not know if this is the same for all MACS but mine will only see 2GB RAM on the MAC (which has 5GB) under Windows Xp and I never found anyway to make it work. Under Windows 7 I can see lots of RAM

              I currently have a FireCoder Blu installed and it works fine. I have also used NX and SPARKS in it. I have also installed eSATA cards, and many others and provided they have MAC and PC drivers they work in both os.

              If you just need a PC don't buy a MAC. Installing bootcamp and maintaining 2 o/s does take a bit of effort. But using Bootcamp you can get access to both systems and it works normally.

                    I was saying if I put windows and MAC on the same drive I have problems restoring images of the o/s, if on separate drives it is generally ok, same as your experience and a general concensus of everyone who posts here.

                    I have had problems depending on which drive in the MAC pro has windows - I think it prefers to have windows on a drive in bay 1, where as it seems the MAC o/s drive could be in bay 2 or 3. They are not insurmountable problems - mainly when I boot up it will got into the wrong o/s, just time consuming an annoying. And of course more recent MACS (mine is 3 years old) may work differently.
