So there are somethings I can only run on Windows and since I upgraded to a SSD, it's a lot fast. Also, the SSD being 256GB gives me a lot more free space than I thought, since all my media is on the HDD. Anyway, I created a partition with the intention of installing of Windows. I was starting up Boot Camp, and all was going well, until I got to wear it asked it needed something specific for Windows 7. I only have Windows XP. I'm still debating if it's worth it to me to upgrade to 7. On Snow Leopard, I was able to install WinXP. I don't think I can now in Lion? I have Parallels 7, and I was going to use the Boot Camp partition for it. I don't even know if I can install Windows within the app. Even if you could, I wouldn't want to do that. I'd rather install through a Boot Camp partition.
