Windows 7: Evil question here

Evil question here

Hey peeps,

This is a bit of a dirty question which some may not be happy with answering.

I acquired an Apple Macbook (Not pro or Air, just Macbook) lappy last night which needs a replacement screen (not to much trouble there, should be easy enough) but at the mo it has OSx installed and I AM NOT AN APPLE MAC PERSON so i want to put Win 7 on it as the spec is pretty good, Core 2 Duo (I think) and 4GB Ram.

Is it possible?

Can it be done without OSx being installed, and above all how would i go about it?

Would it be easier to buy a new HDD that is not Apple, as after looking at another drive, it looks to be a simple Sata drive but with Apple firmware.

Thanks in advance, sorry for the evil, vindictive question.


EDIT* Hope this does'nt break any rules on this forum.

There's no harm in trying. If you want to play safe, use a different HDD. It would help if we knew the specs of the laptop so that we can direct you to the relevant downloads for your hardware. It may be necessary, therefore, to boot up into OSx just so that you can acquire this information from their equivalent of Device Manager and System Information. It needs to be said, though, that Apple tend to use proprietary hardware in their systems that will only work with their OSes.

Anyone run the Resident Evil 5 benchmark?
Just curious. I downloaded it over the weekend and mucked around with it a bit. I got a solid 32-33 fps @2560 x 1600 with every setting in-game maxed out. I am pretty sure I should get more than that once the SLI profile for that game actually gets released. It was kind of the same with the Devil...
