    In order to install windows on your mac, you need to install Windows XP with service pack 2 first. Then there are certain instructions for going about upgrading to vista, but you need xp installed first.

    Ahh nvm the dvd must of done a bad copy, redid the burn to a new one and it was fine, so i guess if anyone gets that problem too just try a new blank dvd. Sorry about this
