Can you give us your exact model here. Take a look at this list and see if you can tell us which one you have: EveryMac - MacBook Index


MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.16GHz T7400 13" white, everything on the apple drive partition works great but these two things on the windows partition do not work, Model A 1181


Your system can support Mac OS-X Lion (10.7.5) thats the last supported on your system. You will likely want to max out the RAM to 4 GB.

The older models only supported Windows 7 32bit make sure you have the correct version installed.

You'll likely need to check your version of BootCamp services. Apple updated it a few time for Windows 7. You don't want the newest as it only offers 64bit drivers.

Sadly, the age of your system does make it hard to maintain. I think you need to start saving your pennies for a newer system. I would recommend getting a i Series CPU based system (new or used). Then you can run the newer Mac OS's as well as newer versions of Windows if that is what you want.

Here's a good writeup on bootcamp: How to use Boot Camp with Lion
