    Boot Camp Question?? I have a hard drive with windows on it already...?
    Is it possible to put a hard drive bay in the CD-ROM slot that already has windows installed? I just want to take my hard drive from my old laptop with all the programs on it and transfer it to the mac....

    Don't think so as you would need to download Boot Camp drivers etc prior to the install. You have not said if the 'old laptop' is in fact a Mac. However give it a try.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
