    Geez had a huge query typed on the ole' iPhone but the page autoscrolled when the keyboard hid causing me to click a link :/



    Anyway, questions. I had a harddrive that died. A few days before I used Windows 7 and bootcamp. I've decided this to be coincidence. Has anyone else experienced Win7 problems and hdd malfunction?



    Also which is best: install osx and then bootcamp or go ahead and make two partitions pre osx install forgoing bootcamp altogether?

    And that's all it is; a coincidence. Windows 7 cannot "kill" your hard drive, just like any other OS can't "kill" your hard drive.


    Using the OS X disc, format the whole drive to HFS+ (journaled) and install OS X. Then, after running Software Update in OS X, use Boot Camp to install Windows.
