    I searched everywhere and didn't find an answer.

    I currently have Vista Business installed in Bootcamp. Will I have problems if I try to install Windows 7 over the top of it, or should I delete Vista and the partition and start over clean?

    Thanks for any help you can provide!

    No need to delete the partition, load Win 7 disk from the Bootcamp assistant, when it asks you to select the drive, highlight the Vista Partition, then choose Drive options (advanced), select format then next.

    This will give you a clean install without the need to mess with the partitions.
