...does not exist.

Okay. Here's my problem:

I just finished installing Windows 7 using Boot Camp on my '08 unibody Macbook. All the hardware works. I can see and hear things. The trackpad and keyboard work just fine. However, I would like to be able to see my Mac HD stuff outside this partition.

So I tried running the Snow Leopard disc and the original OS disc like the Apple site said to install Boot Camp 3. Didn't work. Instead, it brought up some nonsense about OS X remote installation and CD/DVD sharing. When I tried to run it manually deeper than the manual set up file, the computer informs me that I have to run Boot Camp using the setup.exe file. There's nowhere online to download it, and I've checked for duplicated drivers, unupdated drivers... the lot of it.

What must I do in order to install Boot Camp 3.0?

To update the Boot Camp drivers for Windows:

Restart your Mac using Windows.

Click the Boot Camp icon in the system tray and choose About Boot Camp.

If the version is 3.0 or later, use Apple Software Update to check for updated drivers.

If the version is earlier than 3.0, insert your Mac OS X version 10.6 installation disc. When the installer starts, click Repair.

If you have a MacBook Air, insert the disc into a compatible external optical drive connected directly to your computer.

How did you exactly try running the SL disc?

The Boot Camp installer will not start. It doesn't initiate automatically, nor can I initiate it manually by navigating my way through the files on the disc.

Neither of those were of any help either. :(
