Apple releases Boot Camp 1.1 beta

David Chartier

Apple has updated Boot Camp to version 1.1 with a number of new enhancements and compatibility fixes, including:

  • Support for the latest Intel-based Macintosh computers (I'm assuming this means the Mac Pros)
  • Easier partitioning using presets for popular sizes
  • Ability to install Windows XP on any internal disk
  • iSight camera support
  • Support for built-in microphones
  • Right-click when pressing the right-hand Apple key on Apple keyboards
  • Improved Apple keyboard support including Delete, PrintScreen, NumLock, and ScrollLock keys
Instructions for updating are provided at the Boot Camp site (and I would assume along with the Boot Camp install itself as well), but it's pretty simple: install the new version, burn a new CD of drivers, then flip over to Windows and install them.

This might be a long shot, but I wonder if this update might make running Vista - either in its current version or the upcoming RC1 - easier. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks Blair!
