    Does anyone know if the mid 2009 uMB support Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit?

    I know it supports Vista and XP, but I no longer have Vista, so I was thinking of getting Windows 7?

    I don't see why it wouldn't just need latest bootcamp drivers download and should be able to.

    I run windows 7 with no iussues on my late 09 MB

    Yep, that works. You can even do a minor, pretty easy hack to make it run 64-bit.

    Where do you get the latest BootCamp drivers for Windows 7 for a 2009 uMB?

    The disks that came with my uMB have drivers for XP and Vista?

    You can just use the drivers that came with it, and download the latest version of bootcamp from apples site after installation.

    Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit working fine here on the same machine. Had some problems with the Boot Camp 3.2 update breaking the backlit keyboard and hotkey support, but 3.1 seems to work fine.
