Windows 7 on my Macbook
Looking to install Windows 7 on my:

Hardware Overview:

Model Name: MacBook
Model Identifier: MacBook4,1
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 2.4 GHz
Number Of Processors: 1
Total Number Of Cores: 2
L2 Cache: 3 MB
Memory: 2 GB
Bus Speed: 800 MHz

Should I get the 32-bit or 64-bit version? Which will give me the least problems? Thx.

Since you only have 2GB of memory, you won't see any tangible benefits with the 64-bit version. However, even if you did, I would still recommend the 32-bit version simply because it's less of a hassle when it comes to drivers.

I know that I don't stand with everyone else here on this...but do you have any pc's around that you can use for 7 other than your mac? I still use XP, and windows 7 is actually pretty darn good, but I keep it all on my HP desktop, and my old viao notebook.

I would never personally install windows on my mac. I've seen way to many problems as a result of it. Bring on the flaming I guess :) lol

I'm with you, Apple. That's just twisted to put Windoze on mac hardware.

I do have XP running in a virtual box which suppriseingly works really good, but I only use it for work when I am away from Home, Im still a heavy PC user at home but I am trying to learn on my mac. I think its the beauty of the hardware cross with the amazing displays.
