    Hey folks,

    Somewhat Mac newbie here (bought an iMac in March and a MacBook Pro in April). Still don't have a lot on my system - Aperture and VMWare Fusion are about the only two major software packages I've installed so far. I had to install Windows due to two pieces of software that just does not have a Mac counterpart :(.

    Here is my question. If I upgrade to Lion, will this adversely affect VMWare and my Boot Camp drive? I haven't seen this issue addressed anywhere and before I upgrade, I want to make absolutely sure I won't have any problems.

    I may upgrade the MacBook Pro tonight since that does not have a Windows partition, but I am really concerned about the iMac.

    Thanks for the help !

    It won't touch your bootcamp partition as long as you don't install on it.

    I have it working and it works perfect. Good luck.

    Just update your VMware to the current latest version which is 3.1.3 will do.

    Just for anyone who has version 2.???? if you reboot your machine and hold down the 3 and 2 keys lion will boot into 32 bit mode which will allow you to run those versions of vmware.
