    Hey guys I managed to successfully install windows 7 32 bit on the imac with all drivers. I thought I should post this as I couldn't find any information on how to install the audio drivers, and how to get the magic mouse scrolling functions to work.
    Here is how I got everything installed.

    For all files you use before installing them you must right click on them then properties then compatibility,
    check the run this program in compatibility mode for windows vista service pack 2

    For video nvidia
    install bootcamp/drivers/nvidia/nvidiagraphicsmobilevista32/setup.exe

    For audio
    install bootcamp/drivers/cirrus/cirrusaudiovista32.exe

    For chipset drivers
    install bootcamp/drivers/nvidia/nvidiachipsetvista32/setup.exe

    Install all the software/drivers that is in bootcamp/drivers/apple BUT if you are using windows 7
    NOT THE FOLLOWING BOOTCAMP.msi because your oamputer will freeze

    For the bluetooth download and install the drivers from http://support.apple.com/kb/DL952

    I just installed the whole lot. The fact I'm posting this message is a testament to the fact it "just works."

    Apart from the slightly quirky bluetooth, I can't see any issues. I even had Flashpoint running at full resolution with 4xAA and 8xAF in high detail and did the first mission... not the smoothest framerate in the world but playable enough for me.

    Sadly I've realised that I prefer gaming on the Xbox, my mouse fu has gone.

    Now installing 3dMark06.

    Win 7 has been running very well on Boot Camp for months now. I'm baffled why you guys waste your time/money on a 32 bit next gen OS - especially for higher end machines that will fully take advantage of 64 bits not only now but more and more every day? :confused:
