    Hey all, I have an early 2008 MBP Penryn and am contemplating installing Vista Business 64 on it - primarily for occasional games, but also for other things I may need Windows for. 32bit would work fine, but it seems silly to go with 32 *if* the driver support is there for Vista 64.

    My understanding is since the latest boot camp update, its not too hard to get Vista 64 running well - is that correct? Also, what is the process? I assume you install as normal via bootcamp with the original Leopard DVD, then update it once Vista is running? Because it looks like the update for Vista 64 is an EXE, not something you can make a CD of.

    Thanks in advance!

    The update is an update.

    You can install 64 bit Vista, then insert the Disk 1 that came with your system to install all the drivers. Afterwards, update to 2.1 boot camp via exe that you find on apple's site.
