So apple just released 2 sets of boot camp drivers for different macs:

Boot Camp Support Software 5.1.562:
System Requirements for 5.1.5621 (non LynxPoint):
MacBook Air (11-inch & 13-inch, Mid 2011)
MacBook Air (11-inch & 13-inch, Mid 2012)
MacBook Pro (15-inch & 17-inch, Mid 2010)
MacBook Pro (13-inch, & 15-inch, Early 2011)
MacBook Pro (17-inch, Early 2011)
MacBook Pro (13-inch,15-inch & 17-inch Late 2011)
MacBook Pro (13-inch & 15-inch, Mid 2012)
MacBook Pro (Retina, Mid 2012)
MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2012)
MacBook Pro (Retina, Early 2013)
MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Early 2013)
Mac Pro (Early 2009)
Mac Pro (Mid 2010)
Mac Pro (Mid 2012)
Mac Pro (Late 2013)
Mac mini (Mid 2011)
Mac mini (Late 2012)
iMac (27-inch, Quad Core, Late 2009)
iMac (21.5-inch & 27-inch, Mid 2010)
iMac (21.5-inch & 27-inch, Mid 2011)
iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2011)
iMac (21.5-inch & 27-inch, Late 2012)

Boot Camp Support Software 5.1.5640:
System Requirements for 5.1.5640 (LynxPoint):
MacBook Air (11-inch & 13-inch, Mid 2013)
MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch & 15-inch, Late 2013)
iMac (21.5-inch & 27-inch, Late 2013)

This is a real PIA for people who use deployment tools to lay down a boot camp image (We use microsoft deployment toolkit)

So now I need the Model name in windows for each of these mac's:
Any way you guys could create a database of all model names with their friendly names?
I.E.:Mac book pro mid 2013 = Macbookpro11,2

In windows you can get the model name from the bios with a wmi call:
open a command prompt: enter: wmic csproduct get name
this will give you the model name from the bios

Our story is here. It corrects some of the errors of other reports, as well as listing which Mac models use which drivers.

Apple updates Boot Camp 5 to support Windows 8.1

There are actually THREE sets of Boot Camp drivers. Older Macs must use the last version of Boot Camp 4.
