I recently bought a 2009 24" iMac and am running Parallels 5. It's nice to have virtualization on Snow Leopard. In fact, it's so nice that I find I am using Windows almost exclusively. It got me wondering: What if I just used the iMac as a Windows machine, a kind of reverse Hackintosh. In addition to the iMac, I have a PC machine with an Intel SSD g2 160gb in it. Would it be possible to swap out the iMac HDD for the Intel SSD (with Win 7 on it) and just run Win 7 exclusively on the iMac with the SSD? No Boot Camp, no virtualization, just pure Windows. Would there be any driver issues? Hardware compatibility (e.g. iSight cam)? What would happen with BIOS and firmware updates for either Mac or Windows, would these need to be done differently ? Or can I just treat the iMac as a regular PC machine? Any future problems I might stumble upon ? Thanks.
