    Hey there,

    Last night I installed Windows 7 Ultimate via Bootcamp on an 80GB partition on my 27" iMac... Everything went as it should but I noticed that Windows had used over 20GB of space??!! Surely this is just a tad overkill? I was expecting around 4GB Max..

    Does anyone else have experience with Windows 7 Ultimate?

    Many Thanks

    Microsoft requirements for 64bits version of Windows 7 ultimate is 20gb of free space. So it doesn't suprise me.

    You can disable the hibernation mode and that will give you the amount of ram you have back in Space.

    Run the Dos prompt as Admin and type: powercfg -h off
