    I have a friend that has used PC's for years, he is now freelancing and finds himself working a lot on macs, he has asked me to help him set up on a mac, and would like to run both windows 7 and the mac os on a mac pro, mainly to keep using existing software ie Adobe creative suite pc edition.

    My question is, is it possible to clone his pc hard drive either onto a seperate hard drive, or a separate partition on the main mac hard drive to use as a windows 7 startup disc via bootcamp, I am mainly thinking of possible problems with the fat32 PC and HFS mac formatting.

    Many thanks

    He understands that he is not gaining anything by buying a Mac and using it solely for Windows, right? (Aside from the satisfaction of spending double what you would for an equivalent PC)
