    Posted A Thread About This A While Back,
    But No One Gave Me A Straight Answer...

    Basically I'm Trying To Bootcamp With An "Upgrade Disc" Opposed To The Full $200 Version ...

    However,
    It Requires An Older Version Of Windows (98,ME,Etc..),
    Anyone See A Way Around This?


    P.S. New Mac User, So I'm Not Very Mac Savvy, So Try Not To Get To Complicated Please.
    :)

    Try searching for "slipstreaming."

    It might work, I'm not sure.

    I used my XP upgrade disc to install XP in VMware fusion. I was able to eject the XP disc and insert my ME disc I got out of the loft. Once I'd done that the rest of the install went fine. I had to to this because I was unable to activate the OEM CD under Fusion after I created my Bootcamp partition with it.
