    Unless there's a way to do this, I'm guessing the 30 dollar windows 7 upgrade pack offered to students won't work as a bootcamp option. My main question is where's the best place to get Windows 7 home premium/professional full install for cheap?

    If there is a way to use the upgrade disc as a bootcamp partition install, please let me know how, or if there's a link to a tutorial

    You can definitely make the $30 student version work. Retail upgrade versions too. Look a little deeper in the forum you'll find several threads about this. Doesn't mean your license is valid, but it will work.
