    I finally upgraded my hard drive in my Macbook Pro and am looking to create a partition for Windows 7. Couple questions. First of all, since I have 4GB of RAM I'm hoping to install the 64-bit version. Back in the Windows 7 Beta, everytime I tried to install the 64-bit version I would get the "Select CD-ROM" thing at the DOS screen but couldn't select an option. Is this still the case now, and if so, how exactly can I get past that?

    Since Bootcamp 3.1 is out, does it include 64-bit drivers? I recall reading before that trying to get 64-bit to work right was like pulling teeth.

    Thanks guys.

    All of the current generation machines have x64 drivers included on the CDs for Bootcamp. I would assume that the 3.1 update does as well (the 3.1 update successfully updates already-installed x64 drivers as well).
