4 out of 5 eggs Flawless instal on late 2011 MBP 03/25/2014

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

Pros: Pretty easy. Popped in a thumb drive and followed Apple's online Boot Camp instructions and got the drivers. I fired up Boot Camp Assistant from the search bar from the desktop and plugged my thumb drive in. Then when prompted by Boot Camp, I inserted the Win 7 Pro OEM disc. Once Boot Camp partitioned the space I selected, it rebooted and ran Windows install like any other computer. One catch that slightly confused me was that Windows didn't want to use my selected partition "Disc 0 Partition 4". After clicking the extra options and clicking on "Format" it ran and installed in less than 30 minutes. The "Expanding Windows Files" part of the instal made me nervous because it stayed at 0% for about 5 minutes but then it started trucking along. Win7 Pro runs stupid fast and stable on my MBP using a 2.4 Intel i7 quad core processor, 1gb AMD Radeon 6750m video card, and 16gb Crucial RAM

Cons: OEM disc EULA is lame. One time use ONLY. Don't mistake that. If you intend on using it for future computers, buy the full version which is much more expensive.

For Apple users: the trackpad/magic pad will lose most of its functionality. This includes swiping and multi-finger gestures. There is a program called Trackpad++. Google it and you'll be set.

Other Thoughts: If you were wondering, I use OSX Mavericks. No problems here.
