Hey, it's your machine and your $$$.

So...back to my original question I guess. So Windows should install on a clean drive without any special steps in order to work with the Mac 'BIOS'?
Macs do not use a "BIOS" but rather employ the more modern "EFI" (Extensible Firmware Interface) method of booting and boot sector.

You should have no problem installing Windows 7. Just boot your Mac with the Win 7 DVD and install just like you would on a PC. However, if ever you should wish to go back to Snow Leopard, you'll have to reset the PRAM/NVRAM before booting from the original Snow Leopard DVD.
