    hi guys
    just bought a new mbp..

    i was wanting to get vista to see aero and all ive been a beta tester but on a crappy non aero machine

    is it safe both as far as crashes or loss of data and my mbp going dead is concerned and as far performance of vista is concerned on my mbp..to use bootcamp and go ahead with vista


    finally and moat importantly i heaRD if i install vista i wont be able to acces my music and stuff sored curently on my single partition mac os from vista that would be dumb cuz i would like to listen to music from vista...

    i read that i would need a third partition to share files isnt there any other way by just having two partitions to make vista read files from mac partition..

    please reply asap as always

    cheer

    Not really sure as I don't use it, but it should be OK, it does seem to have issues with older wireless networks (crashing them...) though that can be fixed with a registry hack afaik.
    Not if it isn't running.
    Apple's new bootcamp 1.2 supports vista.
