I'd love to be brief with this, but I can't I'm going to law school next year and the exam program my school uses requires that we have a Microsoft Operating system installed VIA BOOTCAMP--they won't let us use virtualization software to install. So, I figured I'd use my Windows XP 64-bit copy, install it via Bootcamp, then get an educational version (upgrade) of Windows 7 and go that route. I successfully installed XP64, installed SP2, then tried to put my OSX disc in to pull the drivers off of. It errors out and says that I need Vista or XP SP2 (which I have installed now). I also tried to run the bootcamp update (3.1), which errors and tells me I need to have 3.0 installed (OSX tells me I'm running 3.01). My question is sort of two part-- 1) Will I be able to take a Win7 64-bit upgrade disc and just blow away the current install of XP? 2) Is there any work around I could take advantage of? I apologize in advance, I've done some searching for this topic, but none really fits my exact situation. Thanks PS--if it helps anymore, I'm running Snow Leopard on a 13 inch MBP.
