    Sorry if I'm in the wrong thread, as I couldn't seem to find one for BootCamp/Tiny7 things.

    Anyway, that said: I've installed a copy of Tiny7 (32-bit) via BootCamp and now have the issue that BootCamp auto-downloads only 64-bit drivers for Windows.

    Any ideas of either 1) how to get a 64-bit copy of Tiny7, or 2) download 32-bit windows drivers for BootCamp?

    Just thought I'd ask around here, can't hurt to ask!

    I'm on Mavericks and BC5.something, I think 5.0.1? Supposedly that version doesn't support 32-bit windows but I've installed normal windows just fine in the past.

    The only ones they have for 5 are 64-bit but I'll try the older versions.

    Tried the two 32-bit versions, which were for BC4. First one installed alright, the other (4.1) said it wasn't for the version of BC I was using.

    However, quite a few things aren't working, and I can't even access the bootcamp control menu... I'll probably just wipe and start over with regular windows at this point.

    Ended up just jumping back to regular windows until I can find some drivers... it was unusable at best.

    I did the opposite by installing win8.1 x64 on a 2007 macbook pro that only supports x86. The bootcamp drivers complained it was a wrong version or architecture but i ran \bootcamp\drivers\bootcamp.msi as admin from the cmd and it installed fine. Boot Camp Support Software 4.0.4131 is for ANY 32 bit version or win7 x64 and the newer bootcamp drivers support any x64.
