    Hi I tried to do a search and all concern only VPC7 not VPC6. Is there a way to use the windows on that disc with bootcamp as this would be alot cheaper than getting another liscense. Also, I am part of msdn so i have windows xp sp2 so I do have windows on my macbook.

    However my dad has a mbp and he would like windows as well and since we no longer have a need for vpc, we figured if it would work. Any ideas about how to do this?

    Many thanks

    does anyone know a way? or is this a pipe dream

    I notice that the vpc cds have 2 serials (one on a white sticker and one on a yellow). is one for windows and one for the actual vpc program? if so could i use my msdn copy of windows and use the serial from the vpc windows?
