Good news that Windows 7 can run in Boot Camp. How about as a virtual machine in Parallels?

Works as a VM in both Parallels and Fusion. Not quite sure about Parallels, but you just tell Fusion it's a Vista install, and it installs fine.

Been trying to download Windows 7 now for the past 4 days, servers are busy, busy, busy.

When I finally get it (if I ever get it) I'll give it a shot with my copy of Fusion. Thanks for verifying it'll work.

Regards.

Took me awhile too, but finally got it late one evening. Install was pretty quick and easy, actually.

I've got it install in Fusion, and it works very well. Even faster then a Vista install in Fusion! I haven't played around with it much yet, all though I do wish I was able to use Aero in Fusion.

Has anyone had problems with the Win7 drive showing up as a time machine drive? Disk Utility thinks it's a raid 1 drive with HFS+ Journaled formatting, but when you get info on the drive it says that it is a NTFS Windows drive, weird. That's the only issue I've had, I must admit, I am quite impressed with Windows 7!

Trying PRAM zap, will let you know if it's good after that.
