comment Upgrade OS X with Windows already installed using Boot Camp - will it break anything?
I updated my question to show the partition information. I had to use rEFIt as my boot loader because I couldn't boot from USB without it. This is the process I used to install Windows which resulted in it being installed on partition 4: apple.stackexchange.com/a/8204/3551

With the SSD making booting so fast I've never felt the need to spend money on Parallels... I've been happy dual booting so far.

comment How can I install boot camp off a Windows 7 USB flash drive?
@Senseful - exactly! I close Boot Camp and reboot, then when the boot loader comes up instead of selecting the first option "Boot Mac OS X from Macintosh HD" I press the right arrow and select Windows on Disk 1. After that it's a normal windows install exactly as if the USB key were a DVD. It will reboot after copying the files and on the first reboot you select Windows on Disk 1 again, on the second reboot after it's done installing a third icon will appear in the boot loader "Boot Windows from Partition 3" you can now boot into Windows and eject your USB key.
