Even though it isn't supported I am running an early 2009 iMac with Windows 7 Pro 64 bit.  Took a lot of help from others and tips at other sites to get past Bootcamp 5's roadblock that wouldn't allow me to load the 64 bit version of Win 7 Pro.  Bottom line it has been working fine and all is well.  Since this is my first experience with Bootcamp and running Windows on a Mac, I've now wondered what will happen if I decide to upgrade with Mavericks?  I'm not planning on any changes to the partition sizes for Bootcamp, so I'm curious as to whether I'm going to be stepping into unchartered territory.  I'm sure others have made this step going from an older release of OSX, but since I'm running something that Apple says isn't supported, I'm assumming that they could make changes in what will probably become Bootcamp 6 and all **** will break loose.

 

FYI, I'm just running Win 7 for gaming purposes since my old Dell is on death's door.  I brought over my Sims2, Railroad Tycoon, and just bought the new Sim City, all of which are running just fine.
