    Hello All,

    Does the disc that comes with a 2010 mbp i5 have windows 7 drivers? if so, what about 64-bit?

    One last question, what format should I partition the windows sector?

    Thanks for any advice. Cheers

    Yes it does. I am running 64-bit Windows 7 on the new 15" i5, and it runs beautifully.

    Also, you'll want to partition BOOTCAMP partition as NTFS once you insert the Windows install disc.

    Yes it does include the drivers. I installed win 7 64 bit + drivers last night without a hitch.

    Just make sure you run the software update ASAP to get the latest stuff, though in some cases it might break your stuff (cough bluetooth cough).

    Well actually scratch that. Run Windows update, then configure your anti virus, then your firewall, then Apple software update :)
