    Hi.

    If any of you have had major problems with Boot Camp that cannot be fixed easily, can you please let me know? I just want to get my facts straight before actually doing it and messing up my MB.

    Launch Boot Camp Assistant, and in the first window it gives the opportunity to print the instructions. Do so, read them fully, then follow the instructions to the letter. You won't have any problems.

    What he said.

    Every issue I have ever encountered using Boot Camp "on the fly" would have been prevented if I had read the instructions because they're pointed out in there. :eek:

    Agreed with the above two.

    Just reading those instructions while installing Windoze, can save a lot of headaches. Also install anti-virus (I like AVG Free) a better firewall (I like ZoneAlarm) and install a spyware scanner (I like SpyBot), also remember to install updates. If you follow all of the above (you can use the software of your choice) you'll be fine, and be as headache free as you can be using Windoze.
