open that setup.exe file within windows, not os x. it installs all the drivers etc for the Mac required for windows to work better on that hardware.

I'd like to add that neither os x or windows are a type of Linux, so this is the wrong forum. os x (Mac), like linux is a UNIX like operating system though, and questions about os x should be submitted in the 'other *nix' forum. good luck mate, hope I helped.
