    I am trying to get windows on my air without much success. I installed parallels. I set up a virtual machine of windows vista from my HP laptop. I entered the windows product key. But I can not figure out how to get the iso image. How do I find the ISO image on my hp if I can't find any windows cd?

    Alternatively, is there a faster way to get windows on an air then through parallels? Is the windows for mac program put out by microsoft availalbe for legal download anywhere?

    Thanks for any help,

    You need to buy the software for each computer you install it on. You cannot install a Windows disc from another laptop. You need a full retail copy of Windows. You may be able to find Vista for a few hundred dollars since Win7 is coming out soon. Good luck.
