I got an early 2006 Macmini with Tiger and a Win XP partition, and I would like to install W7 but I got the early bootcamp that it came with Tiger. The problem is that if i tried to update W7 from Win XP I can't, so I'm scared if I format the win Xp Partition i'll loose bootcamp, drivers, etc. The other problem is that with this old bootcamp I can't install W7 from tiger through bootcamp. So I'm wondering whether to install Leopard and through new bootcamp then install W7.
I'm sorry if i've not been clear enough, but I would like to know if somebody with an old Macmini as mine (Intel core solo 1,55, 2Gb RAM, 60 Gb) has benn capable to install W7
Thank you very much

If you search through our "Alternative Operating systems" section, you'll find numerous threads on this issue.

Other than that, I should say, you can install W7 on your Mini, but unless your absolutely sure of what your doing, I'd leave it be.
