    I have looked everywhere for an answer to this problem and have found nothing! i have partitioned my drive using bootcamp and can boot off the vista install disc fine. Then when i click to install vista i get a message saying i am missing required cd/dvd drivers to install vista. I dont know how it couldnt recognize the drive if i am booting off it! i put all the boot camp drivers onto a flash drive and those arent the ones its looking for.. i am out of ideas!

    i have a brand new mac book pro
    2.4ghz intel duo
    4 gigs of ram

    First... you must use an original full version of Vista, not an upgrade.
    Second... you must use the original Mac OSX CD, not a usb key.

    It knows when you copy cds...
