Ok, so i know when you want to put windows on your mac, you can install it to an external firewire drive, or make a partition on your HD. I plan to make a partition on my HD. I will be using windows for FSX, and for download game files, scenery, planes, etc. Now, for any odd reason, i get a virus in windows, and the virus is supposed to deleted everything, it would only distroy that partition of the drive right? it wont effect the mac os x partition right? and if it screws everything up, i can fix it up in disk utility? So just in case you didnt get my question, would getting a virus in windows on my mac, using bootcamp, will it only affect the partition, and not touch the mac partition? thank you sooo much.
