    Thumbs up Apple Bootcamp...just like magic

    On my vacation time, I installed Windows 7 on my Apple MacBook Pro, and used Apple Bootcamp:

    Apple - Support - Boot Camp

    It is truly magic. I didn't do anything, just pointed and clicked a few things and that is it..

    This might be a dumb question, but have you tried your video out while in Windows 7 native with a projector?

    I never could get that to work in XP...I'm wondering if it works in Windows 7?

    Don't own a projector, otherwise I would give it a shot. Probably best to consult that manufacturer's website. Or post the issue here.

    Seems like I tried both at some point, and spent quite a bit of time myself troubleshooting it, all to no avail.

    Thanks though,

    You know, I've never used Bootcamp. I have always used Fusion for my virtual stuff. Maybe I'll have to give it a try!

    A colleague bought a macbook pro using my student discount. Ive got to say, thats one fine laptop indeed! If i were in the market for a laptop i would strongly consider buying one.

    ..and no im not a apple fanboy! simply admiring a good product!

    Its called dual booting, news flash....Windows has done this for about 15 years.

    At least you put windows on it though. Im getting a macbook pro for "testing" purposes at work here soon and it will be getting Windows 7 ASAP.

    I went the refurbished route, to save money, which is what I recommend to everyone...

    Refurbished Mac - Apple Store (U.S.)

    I'll be clear with you here.

    I gave you neg rep because what you said was unnecessarily provocative and added no value to the conversation. It was also somewhat callow, as is your follow-up comment.

    On top of that, you totally misunderstood the comment that I put in the disapprove field. Multi-booting has been around much longer than any version of Windows, and definitely was around way before 1994-ish...
