    I got WIN7 installed through bootcamp.

    Say I download Virtual Box, or buy a VM software - could I immediately start running a VM??

    Or do I need to repartition my drive and reinstall WIN7? OR, will the VM recognize my current partition and OS?

    Just curious - sorry if this is a dumb question.

    Yes, you can use a Boot Camp partition with a virtual machine. I think VMware Fusion and Parallels are the only two that can do that.

    Next time try using MRoogle or Google.
