I needed to go this route because of the following: You can load the newest version of Windows 7 64bit onto a MacPro NTFS partition, but Bootcamp will not allow you to load its files onto that partition as it must see the 32bit Efi.

I can now see my mac drives and use the bootcamp control panel in Windows 7 64bit to reboot into Mac OS No BSOD!

No Bootcamp files to disable. I found no problems, running various heavy duty graphics software in 64 bit and all memory is in use.

Oh gosh. Mine is the new one.. But yours is Intel isn't it? This doesn't explicity say that Win 7 64 will not work on Mac Pros made prior to that, but it's a risk I suppose. On MacRumors I saw a few users that have installed Win 7 64 on the older Mac Pros, but getting it installed isn't the same as running hassle free with a lot of graphics applciations.
