    This has probably been asked a million time, but i couldnt find anything. If i bought a copy of vista today(i can get a hold of the business version) would it work with boot camp? What features would work? Will i have full hardware support?

    I have been running Vista for the past few days on my MBP.... No problems, except I have already got the "Blue Screen of Death"


    ....oh the reasons not to use windows....

    On my Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro, it didn't detect the wireless card. I'm sure there's a workaround, but I haven't looked for it yet.

    You will not get full hardware support, until Apple puts out another update with the updated drivers for Vista.

    True, but I was still impressed with how much of the hardware Vista recognized on its own!

    If you buy the 64 bit Vista version, you will probably not have wireless network drivers for some time. Same problem with the iSight camera.

    If you install the 32 bit Vista version most functions will work out of the box, and you can get the few remaing drivers off the boot camp disc, iSight for example. You will want to install Input Remapper to get the delete key, windows key and the function keys working properly.
