Hey everyone, So I am going to install Windows on my 13" MBP and had a few questions. I know there are plenty of threads on here, but I was a little confused so here goes nothing. I have a brand new 13.3" MBP and I need to install Windows for school. In a perfect world, I would just wait for Windows 7 and install that when it comes out... But the school network won't support Windows 7 when it is released, so I am going to have to use Vista until then. I am going to install it via bootcamp; will bootcamp let me install 64bit vista? I know bootcamp asks for 32... Also, When the time comes to install 7, will the install keep my files or completely wipe them out? Will it be a smooth transition? I think I'm going to purchase windows through microsoft's online store here: http://store.microsoft.com/microsoft/Windows-Vista-Home-Premium-with-SP1-32-bit/product/28C6A36F It says that Vista is 32 bit... I would want to install 64 if possible, so I wouldn't have to do a custom install when upgrading to 7. Is there a possibility to do this? I plan on using VMWare's fusion as well. Will installing windows 7 have any effect on the communication between OS X and Windows? Tomorrow, I also plan on buying Snow Leopard. Will that have any effect on my future installations? I'm pretty confused... If I could please get any insight into how I should install windows would be VERY helpful. Thanks!
