    Hi everybody,
    I have Mac Pro 2,1 early 2007 8-core, my OS X is 10.6.4, I couldn’t install Windows 7 64-Bit on BootCamp separate drive (as my Mac Pro 2,1 is not supported for this installation by Apple). I am seeking help if anyone find a trick to do that task. Your help on this will be highly appreciated.

    Could gives us details what actually didn't work? Of course Apple says a lot which doesn't need to be actually true.

    The usual workaround is (from memory):

    Use Jowie's method to create a W764 disc that will boot on EFI32
    Use Boot Camp Assistant to create the partition
    Insert W764 disc, reboot holding Alt/Option
    Install W764 as usual
    Install BootCamp64.msi manually.

    Yes, I was leading towards that whilst trying to educate our OP. Well, you spilled the beans.

    To the OP. No offence, we like to help here but it is quite helpful to us to do so by giving as much details as you ; )
