    Partitioning Harddrive
    I want to partition my Mac hard drive. I want about 20GB to install Windows as there are a couple of games I want to play that are Windows only.

    I have a couple of questions, can I install Windows 7? I have a 2009 MacBook, 120GB HD.

    Also, do I install the 32bit version or 64bit version of Windows 7? Assuming the answer to the first question is yes.

    I'm just worried that I will mess it up and accidentally mess up the data on my harddrive.

    Thanks.

    You are running Snow Leopard?
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
