Has anyone done a fresh install (not update) of Windows 7 OEM 64 bit Professional or Ultimate on a Mac Pro?

Any problem getting drivers?

Thanks

I did a OEM Home Premium install on a Mac Pro early 2009. No problem at all with BootCamp drivers on the Snow Leopard DVD. But, as I said on the Windows 7 thread, my mistake was installing Home Premium, because this version doesn't recognize more than one physical CPU.

Note that Apple is not supporting the installation of Windows 7 on some models. See http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3920

Bye! :)

I had no problems installing Windows 7 Ultimate RC1 on my early 2008 Mac Pro. Will buy Windows 7 Pro when I can afford to.. The RC is fully functional until March anyway.

Thanks for the info and the link.

One of my Mac Pros is the early version so guess I'll have to just give it a shot and see if it works on that box.
