    Hey guys,

    I just bought and downloaded Lion, and I was wondering if dual booting 10.7 and 10.6 would void my warranty. Yes, I know dual booting Windows obviously doesn't void any warranty (with bootcamp), but then again dual booting 10.6 and 10.7 is not "officially" supported, which is why I am doubtful...

    If I were to dual boot, would I be able to transfer files across partitions like I can with Windows?

    Thanks in advance :)

    if for whatever reason I wanted to revert back to 10.6, could time machine revert the OS, or does it just do like random files I have?

    Time Machine could probably do it.

    I'm dual booting right now on my iMac. Seems to be fine.
    Time Machine can restore back to 10.6, when you go to restore from a Time Machine back up you can select the specific date of back up to restore from.
