Will the Apple USB SuperDrive work with Windows 7 installed via Boot Camp?
I plan to purchase the 2012 27" iMac which has no optical drive. I have Windows 7 on DVD and wish to Bootcamp a partition of Macintosh HD.
Once I start up my new iMac in Windows 7, will this optical drive work for it or will I have to purchase a PC USB CD/DVD drive?
The requirements state that you need a mac, but not OS X. Thanks.

I have tried to use superdrive with new imac 2012, ieOSX 10.8.2
it works perfectly in mac but in windows 7 it is not recognized it shows in device manager as a GX40N USB drive but with a yellow blob.
I have been told it is because win7 needs to be 64 bit on imac but the driver required needs to be 32 bit. I have no idea if thats correct but be assured I have tried everything I know to correct it but nothing as yet
