from vista to windows 7 on imac

I am running windows vista on imac 24" for the last year with no problems whatsoever. I was wondering if anyone has tried installing windows 7 on imac. and if they have how do i install it should i just upgrade from within windows vista or should i install it from boot camp.

installing from bootcamp will probably delete all my files and emails on vista, but just wondering what would be the best way to do this

thanks

the best way would be a clean install in bootC. if you upgrade vista you import all of its problems as well. Re: emails back them up or export them. what email client?

I run windows 7 on a Macbook Pro.

Everything works ok except for the Cirrus Audio drivers, which likely arent on the iMac anyway.

hey thanks guys.

my email client is microsoft outlook. i can back them up..

the only other problem arises that i will have to reinstall everything again like office, adobe cs etc. i guess i will leave it for the next weekend. to do this.

one other quick question is i ran the upgrade advisor and it recognised mostly all programs except for Apple isight camera. i dont really use the camera but did anyone have any problems in installing it.

thanks
