I have an iMac, 1TB, 3.06 GHz, Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB memory. I'm running OS X 10.5.8 Leopard w/boot camp 2.0. The PC side has 240 GB (of the total 1TB) running Windows Vista. I want to upgrade to Lion and Windows 7. Can I perform upgrades without messing the current partions up? I know I need to upgrade to Snow Leopard, then Lion. When I do these upgrades, does it affect the boot camp side? Do i upgrade the Boot camp side separate from Mac side? Can i upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate without upgrading the Mac side? How does the upgrade process work when you have the HD partioned?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8), w/Boot camp 2.0 Windows Vista
