    Hi,
    I have currently XP installed in Boot Camp and I have Vmware fusion installed in OSX. I can boot my XP partition via vmware fusion.

    Now the question is, when I boot the XP via vmware, I can boot from a Win 7 DVD and the installation starts. Can I just go on an install it in this way ?

    The thing is that I'm not at home and only have a VNC session to my mac, so I can't install it in the classic way which requires a reboot :)

    Thanks,
    Tex

    I've never tried this but I'm sure that it will either fail to upgrade or prevent your machine from starting in boot camp again.

    That's what I think too but I wanted to see if there was someone who tested it before I srcew my partition up :)
