    im currently downloading windows 7 rc to try out, also im getting a new 320gb hdd and 4gb ram soon.
    I already have bootcamp with xp set up on it. when i install my new hdd im going to clone my current hdd so it will have what i have now.

    next, i want to create another bootcamp drive to try out windows 7 as well. is this possible? to have 2 boot camp drives? can't seem to find any info about how to do this.
    i have a early 2007 black macbook btw.

    all bootcamp does is make a partition, it also provides drivers mind you...

    but all you have to do is go to disk utility and make another partition. leopard allows you to do this on the fly given the space allocation.

    that should help.

    I had this same problem, but I just put in my Windows 7 CD and created a partition (from the MAC OS X partition), so you will end up with 3 partitions, Mac OS X, XP, and 7. When you boot though, it will only show up Mac OS X or Windows. Select Windows, and hit F8 and choose Windows 7 from the boot menu if you want to start 7 up.
