Any suggestion regarding size of partition to set in Boot Camp to be sure of having adequate space for Windows 8.1 and at least one large Windows application, a custom database application? I'm thinking about 150 GB ...


Windows 8.1 takes 20GB (16GB for x86), a database application like MSSQLS takes 1-5 GB depending on the features you install. A database with 10,000,000 entries is roughly 1-10 GB.

150 GB is a lot, IMHO, but it depends what else you want to do with it and how much memory you have available of course.
