Is it possible to install Windows 7 64-bit on a late 2007 Mac Pro using Boot Camp?

If not, what about Windows Vista 64-bit?

I'm guessing it's a MacPro2,1 (check using System Profiler.app) with an Intel Xeon 5300 series CPU. If so, that architecture is 64-bit and you should have no problem installing Windows 7 64-bit. Since it's likely not officially supported for Boot Camp x64 by Apple, you'll need to manually install the 64-bit drivers. Those instructions are recent and relevant for Boot Camp 3.0. It works well on my MacBook (Late 2008).

Good to hear that! –  fideli Jul 8 '10 at 10:32

If your Mac has a 64 bit processor (that is, a core duo or other dual core processor) and you are running snow leopard with bootcamp 3.0, I believe so. I know it apparently works on a macBOOK pro, so I can't see why it wouldn't on a mac pro.
