    Is it possible/recommended to have 2 partitions so i can have vista 64 on one and vista 32 on the other? I want to be able to play some windows games such as Fallout 3 and Crysis, and i read on here that 64bit is more stable. But, I also need 32 for some applications.

    Not in Boot Camp.

    Are you certain your 32-bit applications won't work in 64-bit Windows? For real? You checked?

    Then there is an unsupported triple-booting method. Google for it; it does work.

    I am still waiting for the MBP to be delivered. Just want to get as much info as I can before I start playing with it. I was under the impression that 32 bit wouldn't work on 64 bit. I'll have to look it up

    It's only drivers and anti-virus that are particularly picky in 64-bit.

    Can't you have one copy of Vista installed via boot camp and then have the other copy of Vista installed on virtualization software like Fusion or Parallels?
