    I just had to call Apple support because of my problem I posted in another thread and he told me that in approx. 2 weeks Apple will release its update.
    Also, apparently only Win 7 32-bit will be supported.

    Hope this hasn't been announced yet or I will look like an idiot. :p

    I am not sure why only 32bit support if true once it comes out. That would be crazy since Snow Leopard and Windows 7 are now 64bit and most users want to take advantage what it offers. That would be a HUGE mistake on Apple.

    BTW, does anyone know why it won't work with 64bit? I am running Windows 7 64bit right now and don't see any issues. Also, I have not checked for sure, but it seems to be seeing it as 64bit and ALL my 10GB of memory in my 64bit software in Windows 7. Does anyone know a way to find out for sure?

    I can't wait to know how this turns out.

    I don't understand it either. Since Vista 64-bit is being supported I think he might very well be wrong.

    7 64-bit sees all of my memory. If you want to check, click on start -> right click on 'computer' -> properities. There you will also find a Windows Benchmark. I had to reinstall Win 7 and now whenever I run the benchmark I get an error. Don't know why, it worked with my first install.. had something like:

    6.7
    6.7
    6.5
    5.9
