Updated: DriveTheLife has been updated to the new version called Driver Talent with a fresh new look. And yes, use Windows 7 64-bit, hands down.
There is apparently some strange glitch at work here. First up was the stable 32-bit version. The solution is under 'bootable install disc' in my previous link: basically you create a copy of your Win7 disc but change some parameters so that it does boot. Solution is to burn a new copy of the disk, good instructions here. This may turn out to be widespread enough that Apple may have to make adjustments soon, but I need Windows 7 to run on my system now.
And if you want the built in iSight camera to work for programs like Skype you need to do the installation as Apple intended mostly. Some people have had trouble with trackpad if you look around. I run Autodesk Revit Architecture in Parallels and it renders slow, but is quite amazing software in every other aspect. So, is it better to use Bootcamp?

I can't boot into my macbook! Snow Leopard is being installed as I type this.
It will start to scan your computer to find all the driver issues. Hope this help you all for the new, and updated link. I am now using Parallels Desktop for my Windows 7 work. Likewise the keyboard keys for eject, volume, etc, are not going to work properly without the Apple drivers. Double click it to uncompress it, if it is not automatically uncompressed. Without bootcamp you miss some serious functions.
I have went through several and no success so far. Unfortunately, we did not have as much luck with the 64-bit version of Windows 7 on our MacBook. If so, wouldn't it be a simple process to install Bootcamp once Snow Leopard is installed? We could even mouse with one finger, leave that finger on the pad, and use our thumb to click buttons. From these can be directly downloaded to the Windows side, once Windows is installed. Skip the support drivers and see if it will install without them or until it specifically asks for them.
Hi Matt, Please verify that you are missing your graphics driver in the device manager of windows. I didn't know about that Rollback program or its effect on installation in Boot Camp. I researched a bit and found some information on other posts that in order to run a 32-bit i need to update the drivers from bootcamp 4. I ordered a copy of Parallels Desktop, and should be receiving it soon. If you can work out which model of apple you have, you can now get the direct download link from the apple site.

If you have a different experience, definitely do share in the comments. I had installed a Boot Camp for Windows Vista 32-bit that is still working, but I have a Windows 7 64-bit installation disc that I would like to use on this machine. Restarting the machine has not fixed it for me. Instead, it seamlessly integrates into your existing Boot Camp installation. A: Open System Information, and look in the Hardware Overview section. As for PriebeJ and BeatleMike's suggestions, maybe the next time I try to install Windows using Boot Camp I'll keep those things in mind.
Im running Windows 7 in Parallels 5 on my late 2009 iMac with Snow Leopard. It's almost like magic Cause nothing scientific worked. Here are some images of what i'm going through: I can't choose exe files, i can only select folders and the installer scans those folders for whatever the installer is looking for. Bootcamp is obviously not going to work here so there are the steps. Try switching between the two between installations if you can.
I could not run the Setup. When it comes to the drive selection for installation choose create new volume and increase the size to maximum this is the volume you freed up in step 4. I'd like to put Windows 7 64 bit on it, but when I tried through a partitioned Bootcamp install, I got a screen asking for 1 or 2 cd boot option. It also came with Leopard pre-installed, and I think this was right about the time Leopard came out. Plug the power back in and boot up into the install of windows. Reading this makes me extremely frustrated as these retards responding have abosolutly no reading comprehension whatsoever.
