I am trying to install Windows 7 on GUID partition table on my MAC BOOK PRO machine, before I start I have few questions:

  • is it possible to do this?
  • any issues that I might encounter while doing it and what counter measures should I take?
  • And after installation will there be any change in behavior for applications like Visual Studio, SQL server or any other windows application?

  1. Yes (Since Vista on x64/64-bit editions of Windows ONLY)
  2. If you do it from Bootcamp, and follow the guides, there shouldn't be a problem.
  3. No problems what so ever... Only remote problem is SQL doesn't like being installed on a compressed drive, but you get that MBR or GUID.
