I have the dual core 2011 i7 mac as you can read a whole lot more about over in my other thread. Decided this was a whole new chapter so it needed a new thread. I have two SSDs in the belly of my machine, first thought was to RAID0 them because of the most amazing speeds - but after looking around and wishing to run Windows 7 also I learned RAID is not possible. Therefor I have dedicated one SSD to OS X and the other will eventually end up as Windows. Questions: 1) What partition should I use for the Windows 7 drive? 2) Anything I need to change in the BootCamp setup to get the best performance? 3) Can BootCamp run Windows 7 Professional 64bit? 4) Anything I need to know before I start? I had a copy of Parallels 6 from a MacUpdate bundle some time back I never used, got an email from them the other day with a offer I couldn't say no to - upgrade to version 7 for half it's normal price! So now I also have that possibility. Question 5) Any special settings I have to make to utilize Windows 7 Professional 64bit the best possible way under Parallels 7?
