    Well? I have an i7 iMac and I installed Windows 7 on it and was wondering down the road when I move onto a new machine, how to I take that partition with me? For example, I use time machine to back up my Mac files so at any time I'll be ready to start anew, I can I do this for my windows partition? BTW, the partition is 500GB on a 2 TB drive.I'm hoping there's a way to give the partition it's own hard drive when I get a computer that can handle multiple hard drives.

    I was going to put games on my partition but won't until I know that I can take the partition with me to my next computer.

    Thanks Mac Rumors!!!
