I have read that Lion only wants Windows 7, but I have XP currently on boot camp on my Snow Leopard iMac.


Has anyone had any real, actual experience with upgrading from snow leopard to Lion with Windows XP on bootcamp? Can you tell me if Lion lets me keep XP, or will I lose access to all my XP files and be forced to purchase Windows 7 and reinstall all my stuff?


Thank you!

iMac (21.5-inch Mid 2010), Mac OS X (10.6.8)
