 From what I understand here, your problem seems to be with your  
Windows installation.

But here it seems you have a problem with your Mac installation. I  
this is the case, I would advise you to subscribe to the TeX on Mac  
OS X mailing list:

But fonts need map files that are installed elsewhere. If you want to  
post your problem to the TeX on Mac mailing list (or in this very  
list), please provide a minimal example of what *doesn't* work; like  
for example, if you want Palatino and this doesn't work:

Hello! $a + b = c$
