Yes, you can allocate almost the entire hard drive for Boot Camp.

However, I wouldn't use Windows 7. I'd use Windows 8.1 instead because of HiDPI support.

will every thing work the same. If you use boot camp for windows will you do all and everything in windows such as setting up wireless and static ip addressing or do you have to do back on the mac side and do it. i will be using win 7 i have several programs that have to use 7.

----------

also will i lose everything when i set up bootcamp

Everything will work the same.

If you have programs that will only work on 7, update them.
