    i plan on installing win 7 on my mbp for some gaming.
    but i also plan on installing win 7 on my hackintosh but am a bit confused on which to buy.

    can i buy the win 7 home premium upgrade family pack and use that to install it on my mbp and hackintosh or will i not be able to?
    i really dont want to pay for two seperate win 7 copies so if anyone is in a similar situation or knows if i can just buy the family pack and would work please let me know

    You'll need a full copy of Windows to install on your MBP - an upgrade won't work.

    i read in some places people installed the upgrade then reinstalled it to make it appear as an upgrade for it to work
