Does anyone know if the latest generation iMacs still have the 32GB limit for Windows partition? TIA
They shouldn't have. Many people use BC partitions much bigger than 32GB. I had a Windows partition, created via Boot Camp Assistant, with the size of 50GB. But I used a 2007 iMac for that.
Btw, your thread title is really un-descriptive.

They haven't for the past 2-3 years from what I remember of setting my old and brand new one up
i set mine for 100gigs. I did it through disk utilities. Reformat the partition to FAT and reformat it with your windows install disc to NTFS and you're good to go.
I thought 32GB was just the recommended size? I thought they said you can do anything you like so long as you leave enough for your Mac partition..
You're correct. If you are more than 32 GB for Windows partition, you just have to format it NTFS instead of FAT32. That's it.
Page 13 has all the info.
If you're installing Win 7, or Vista, NTFS has to be used, period. Neither of those OSs will install on a FAT32 partition. Win XP can be installed on a FAT32 partition.
Just get parallels, much easier and worth the money... Especially in coherence view.
Not if you need the full power of your hardware, i.e. for gaming. Though its still nice as an additional tool.
