    SO I need a definite answer, does using your bootcamp (Ultimate x86) partition in VMWare cause any problems of any kind what so ever in your mbp?

    I've heard people saying it screws up Aero? Some say it doesn't use your graphics, and yet others say, it makes makes your boot camp un-bootable?

    is any of this true? should I bother with this? Please help me!

    thank you very much for your assistance and your time!

    Installing windows through bootcamp is easy & its no different than running it on a PC, Fusion works seamlessly with both OS X's so no, no problems

    I use XP and not Vista, but VMWare totally screwed up my bootcamp installation and I had to start all over from scratch. I will never attempt it again.

    I'm using my XP bootcamp partition thru Fusions and it's fine. I can use bootcamp or Fusion and no problems. Network connecting is sometimes slow thru Fusion, but getting that figured out. Fusion 2 was slower than 1 for me, so downgraded to 1 without a hitch too.
