    Hey guys

    I just install a 256GB 840 pro SSD in my mid2011 21.5 imac and this is fantastic. It's like a new computer, incredibly fast.

    As i still need some windows apps and i want some light gaming, i want to install windows via Bootcamp, not virtual machines. As my SSD is to small for a bootcamp partition and MacOSX partition, i was wondering if i can install windows on the stock 1TB inside the mac. I need something around 250GB for the BC partition, and that's the reason i don't wanna install on my SSD. Anybody knows if this is possible?

    Yes it is, when you run the Bootcamp Assistant it will ask you where you want the Windows installation to go. You can choose the drive, and create a partition.
