I'm running a 64 bit Win 7 system (this is my main working system) on a Macbook Pro Mid 12.
I wonder if I should do the update of the boot camp support drivers 5.1? Is updating the drivers dangerous (I've never done this before)? Can I loose my Win partition?
Thanks for any help!
Cheers, Olaf

Updating Boot Camp drivers cannot result in the loss of your Windows partition. The worse that could happen is that certain peripherals wouldn't work as well (or at all). I have not heard of this happening with this update, though.

But if everything is working for you, then there's probably no reason to update your Windows 7 setup. The new Boot Camp driver update is aimed as supporting Windows 8.1.

Update boot camp driver does not causes any problem if you are using the windows in another partition. When you are going to update the boot camp driver then always remember that you have to update the windows OS too. That help to clean my Mac other problems
