Thanks, but where can I see the Bios Version of my motherboard ?
And then i got a 2nd question : Can I make a dualboot Mac Lion OSX/Win 7 on a Hard Disk SSD 60GB ? And if yes, what are the steps to make it ? (Install window or Mac first ?...)

Re: CustoMac Pro Builds 2 advice?

YOu can dual boot both in Snow and Lion but you only have a 60GB SSD and you will run out of room very fast if not already as Win 7 OS needs a lot of space.

You need to search to see exactly the size of partitions your going to need for each.

You might be able to get away with a 30/30 split or even a 20/40 but I do know Win 7 uses a lot more space then OS X
