    I have a Volume licensed copy, (which means it is burnt to a disc, but still paid for). Will this still work with boot camp?

    Seriously telling you: anything and everything will work with BC... even Linux and BSD (BSD remains unverified and Im currently running Ubuntu with BC) as BC is ultimately not much more than a partitioning utility!

    So all Win will work (whether legal or illegal) but you should always have a legal copy! And considering your Win's license is fully legal...... no problems!

    Yes. Genuine just means that is isn't counterfeit, or is not already installed on another system, so you don't have extra hastles with WGA.
