Okay. after some messing about, I downloaded the whole mac os x 10.5.6 ISO from a torrent (This is completly legal seen as the software I want from it is free, and the ISO got deleted after I extracted what I wanted).

For those who are interested.. (archive this if you wish)
  1. Get hold of the whole BOOTCAMP section of the mac os x 10.5.6 or higher DVD
  2. Install BOOTCAMP
  3. Restart your PC
  4. Play with your function keys
  5. Test your keyboard layout to see if the keys output what they really are (for example, '@' writes '@' in a notepad or whatever)
  6. SHMILE because your APPLE ALUMINIUM KEYBOARD is now fully functional with windows 7. (It even opens your mug holder..sorry, ejects the optical drive)

I will upload BootCamp install files to my Windows Live SkyDrive and link here if requested.
