    Just took the plunge and wiped my original HDD, Copied everything i need to my OSX HDD (drag and drop from windows xp). Have now created the Windows 7 and activated it but it wont let me drag and drop to it at all!
    any ideas (i did look but everything involved downloading more software which i didnt think i had to download before!
    Cheers

    How are you running Windows?

    What are using to try to drag and drop the files over?

    You need to install NTFS-3G to write to the Windows drive using OS X.
