    I have a MBP that I am thinking about installing BootCamp and Windows 7 on.

    My only concern is that I spilled some liquid on the touchpad awhile ago and now when you physically push down on the pad it does not respond; the rest of the pad works fine for all gestures and I have enabled the tap feature so that a single (or double) light tap allows me to still use it for everything...except for when I first log in when I need to use a mouse or keyboard to select my account and log in.

    My question is whether or not the lack of being able to physically push down on the trackpad will cause any problems at any of the prompts or menus during the installation of Windows 7?

    I have a Magic Mouse, wireless MS mouse and a wired USB mouse that I could use as alternatives if necessary.

    I just did this yesterday - installed Windows 7 64bit on my 2011 MBP. I used my wired USB mouse to help with the installation. You should have no problem doing the same.

    All you need is a working mouse and arrow keys! Good luck!
