    I believe you can download them from Apples website. A quick Google search threw up this - Download BootCamp Drivers for Macs to run Windows 7 or 8 | Chris F Carroll

    when I ran bootcamp it automatically downloaded the drivers for the specific hardware and burned a disk for it.

    They are upgrade packages only

    Hold ALT and it re-images it from the interweb. You don't need the disk.

    Only Mac's from 2010 onwards have the Internet Recovery feature.

    If your iMac's are from 2006, your model ID will probably be iMac5,1 so you will need these drivers.

    I don't think so - the links on my website that JonThompson quotes are not update packages, they are the drivers (or as Apple calls them, "Windows Support Software") that you need.
    However, for opening the downloaded pkg file a machine with no OS X, you do also need the instructions on Opening a BootCamp driver download or other pkg or dmg file on Windows 7 or 8 with 7-Zip | Chris F Carroll
    Cheers, Chris

    Hi,
    The link you have posted are for specfic devices, none of them are the correct one. Ideally i just need the snow leopard bootcamp drivers as these work.

    Thanks

    Source yourself a replacement disc?

    More to the point, why have iMacs running just Windows? :-S
