    Hi all,
    I have the new 13 inch 2.66 ghz MBP.I m planning to install windows 7 through Bootcamp?Can anybody suggest what should be the appropriate size of the partition or should i go with the default 32 GB..??I m planning to Play Call of duty Modern warfare 2..so i may be needing space..but my doubt is can i install the game into the Mac partition instead of the Windows partition??(then i can keep 32 GB)
    Thanks in advance!!!

    that came with a 250GB HDD? personally i would add 50GB for bootcamp. that 15GB might come in handy...

    Not without 3rd party apps like NTFS-3G and HFSExplorer. As I said, you can give it 50GB now and resize if needed

    First of all thank you for replying..I really appreciate it.:)
    I have already installed Macfuse and NTFS for mac...they are working fine.
    So will i be able to download large files in Windows 7 mode and then move it to the Mac partition and vice versa???

    if your formatted in NTFS then it will all go smoothly for you :D

    just make sure to backup regularly!

    See my post above ;)

    Yeah, OS X can read NTFS without any apps but for writing, you need NTFS-3G. Windows can't read or write HFS+ without any apps but HFSExplorer is free and works okay
