    I was installed XP on my MBP and feel too old to me then I was removed it and return to MS Return Program for refund then really want buy Vista Home Premium OEM from newegg because of cheaper than buy at retail store.

    Does Vista HP OEM from newegg will work with Bootcamp after removed retail version of XP in last month ago?

    Yes, just delete the partition using bootcamp assistant in mac os x by recombining the partitions, then recreate it as if you were installing bootcamp for the 1st time and install vista. You might have problems returning xp to newegg - if they give you trouble just call microsoft and they will give you the address to send the discs to to get a refund.

    Thanks, just nevermind.

    I have full version of Vista HP from iMac then installed on MBP and called MS to activated the Windows and it worked so good, shortly after that then removed Vista from iMac.
