Windows 7 is the latest Operating System which is being released from Microsoft. It has new and very improved features when we compare that with the latest Operating Systems. Boot Camp is one of the Apple-provided methods of partitioning your Macintosh hard drive. You may be able to boot into either Windows or Mac OS X. It is seen that not all the versions of Windows are being supported under Boot Camp. By using Mac OS X Boot Camp Assistant you may be able to install Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7 on Intel-based Macintosh. Thus by installing Windows you can make the system dual boot. There might be errors during this and you can solve them very easily.

Error code 0x80070005
"Error code 0x80070005" error code alert would appear when you try to upgrade from Windows Vista to Windows 7 using Boot Camp.
