    I am currently running windows xp but thinking about using windows 7 instead.

    Few questions though.

    1 Apples website says these iMacs dont support W7:

    iMac (17-inch, begin 2006)
    iMac (17-inch, eind 2006)
    iMac (20-inch, begin 2006)
    iMac (20-inch, eind 2006)
    MacBook Pro (15-inch, begin 2006)
    MacBook Pro (17-inch, eind 2006)
    MacBook Pro (15-inch, eind 2006)
    MacBook Pro (17-inch, begin 2006)
    Mac Pro (medio 2006, Intel Xeon Dual-core 2,66 GHz of 3 GHz)

    How to find out if mine is one of these?

    2 My iMac has like 2GB of RAM, 2,3 ghz duocore cpu (afaik). If i can install W7 will it run smoothly?

    3 Do i have to delete the xp partition and use the bootcamp assistant all over? Or can i just boot up xp ,and insert the W7 install disk to install?

    Thx in advance guys.

    Thx for the quick answer m8! I found out i have a iMac 5,1 so that should do. Does anyone have any experience with running windows 7 with 2GB of ram?

    Im no heavy gamer, just league of legends once a while. Besides that just the regular mailing/word and stuff.
