    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 ...

    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.
