    I installed windows 7 64 bit on bootcamp on my mbp and it ran perfectly. I then installed all my drivers from my osx disc and it still ran perfectly fine. Today I installed VMware and tried to load windows via the bootcamp partition and it got an error. It was in "starting windows" screen and then it turned blue and went to a screen asking me to choose to go to start-up repair or to start windows normally. I went to the start up repair and it told me that nothing was wrong.

    To sum up my issue:
    windows 7 runs fine on bootcamp, but cannot startup in VMware.

    Please help me with this issue.
    Thanks in advance.

    I'm not sure if that's going to help you or make things worse since you already bought VMWare, but I am using Parallels and I can run Windows 7 through the Boot Camp partition just fine.
