    Hey. This might be really basic...

    I have a mbp2010 running vista in bootcamp. I would like to upgrade to 7.

    Can I boot the machine in vista, and upgrade (install 7 on top of vista) Or will that mess up up the MBR (boot loader) ?

    Should be fine. Though you can also just install W7 clean from the upgrade disk.

    This is actually the best way to do go if you also want to go 64 bit and aren't already running it.
