    hey all, long time reader, first time poster. before i begin, let me first say that i know that win7 is not officially supported by bootcamp, i'm just checking to see if someone else out there has encountered my problem and been able to resolve it.

    i recently purchased a copy of 64 bit windows 7 ultimate and set it up on a bootcamp 3.0 install on my late '07 15" mbp running snow leopard. after a few minor headaches surrounding my install, i have been running both snow leopard and win7 without any major problems for about two and half weeks.

    overall the experience has been pretty good. i have both a bluetooth mighty mouse which works perfectly between both os's as well as an older bluetooth keyboard which is a little more finicky: sometimes i have to power cycle the keyboard in order to activate it's bluetooth connection.

    unfortunately, i regularly (meaning at least once every 2 hours of activity, sometimes more often) receive a BSOD, showing a STOP with the following codes:

    Problem signature:
    Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
    OS Version: 6.1.7600.
    Locale ID: 1033

    Additional information about the problem:
    BCCode: 10d
    BCP1: 0000000000000005
    BCP2: 0000000000000000
    BCP3: 0000000000001401
    BCP4: FFFFFA8002B44A70
    OS Version: 6_1_7600
    Service Pack: 0_0
    Product: 256_1
    i'm wondering if anybody out there has had this problem and been able to resolve...

    thanks for reading!

    It's not supported but it works. There are thousands of users, including me, who have successfully installed Windows 7 on their Intel Macs.

    If your copy of Windows is illegitimate, the issue might be in the build itself.

    Try reinstalling.

    True, but it's such a waste of time troubleshooting these types of problems when legit drivers from Apple are right around the corner.
