    I am currently downloading Windows 7 RC and this is the first time I am using Boot Camp so I have some questions.

    When I partition my HD i plan on giving windows 25GB. Enough?
    Will there be any problems when partitioning? If so what precautions should I take?
    Any other problems that might pop up?

    Print the Boot Camp instructions and read/follow them
    25 GB may be enough, but it depends on what you will be using/doing
    Don't forget to install the drivers

    Back up your OSX partition before you start

    I installed Win 7 onto a VMWare machine and it went really smoothly.

    I assume the drivers are on the grey os x disc? And I put this in after windows install?

    Precisely. Some people said that you should either install the drivers before windows updates, or install windows updates before the drivers.

    I don't remember which order they advised, but I was fine installing the drivers first and then the windows updates.

    If you want aero, you will need to dl drivers form Nvidia's website.
