    Hi All,

    I have installed Vista thru fusion in my Mac. I currently want to have the same vista to be installed thru boot camp as I do not use dual booting frequently. Is it possible to create a boot camp partition with the use of the Virtual Machine that i already have? Also is it possible for me to transfer data between windows and mac in boot camp? I know the files of OS X can be viewed in Windows using HFSExplorer. But is it possible to access Windows partition in OS X? Please help me doing this and also let me know for any activation problems.

    Sorry. You can only use Bootcamp to VMWare, not VMware to Bootcamp. And for viewing Mac files, MacDrive.

    Thanks for your replies. I will delete the VM partition and install a new boot camp partition. But before that, is it possible to see the Boot Camp Vista partition when I login in MAC?

    you should be able to, also you can also use vmware to run your bootcamp partition once (that is IF) you migrate your vista to bootcamp.
