Hi I have a 2009 MBP with OSX 10.6 on it. What I want to know is if it's possible to create a windows 7 partition in either Parallels or VMware Fusion and then transfer than partition onto the Bootcamp partition. The reason is, is that the optical drive doesn't work anymore and so im having a hard time figureing out how to do it. I have an external Asus DVD drive & a 32Gb usb stick too, maybe I can do something with those. Thanks for the assistance guys.
