I have a Late 2012 Mac Mini (OS X 10.8.3) with Boot Camp 4.1 and Windows 7 SP1 installed. I mainly work on Win7 and would like to continue doing so. My question is: Would upgrading to Boot Camp 5.0 require me to re-install my Win7 or does it work like a simple update? I certainly do not want to waste any time having to re-install my copy of Windows and all my content as it is working fine, but would like to install the latest Boot Camp drivers if it is no problem doing so.

Mac mini, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3), Windows 7 SP1 via Boot Camp 4.1
