Boot Camp support for Windows 7 :restrictions & caveats

Apple promises support as late as the end of the year, only on Snow Leopard, and only on recent Apple products.

Apple will support Microsoft Windows 7 (Home Premium, Professional, and Ultimate) with Boot Camp in Mac OS X Snow Leopard before the end of the year. This support will require a software update to Boot Camp.


The following models will not be supported for use with Windows 7 using Boot Camp.

iMac (17-inch, Early 2006)
iMac (17-inch, Late 2006)
iMac (20-inch, Early 2006)
iMac (20-inch, Late 2006)
MacBook Pro (15-inch, Early 2006)
MacBook Pro (17-inch, Late 2006)
MacBook Pro (15-inch, Late 2006)
MacBook Pro (17-inch, Early 2006)
Mac Pro (Mid 2006, Intel Xeon Dual-core 2.66GHz or 3GHz)

Wow they don't even support the Mac Pro that you spend so much money for.

That's kind of sad since they really don't have many computer models to support in the first place.

Hehe god damn Apple. Happy to let you install Windows on your mac but they won't let you install OSX on a PC :-(

As an iPhone developer that means I have to fork out big money for a computer or work on a hackintosh that could break at any time :-(
