    Hey guys iI need some help with the wireless CD sharing,

    Im trying to install Vista on my Macbook Air via the CD sharing off my Macbook

    I have everything set up, and my Air is reading the optical drive on my macbook, but when I get to bootcamp and attempt to install it says "no CD is found, please insert..."

    Can sombody help me? I called Apple and asked for help but the rep didnt know niether did the specialist and suggested me to book an appointment with a genius at a Apple store

    Thanks in Advance!!

    Cheers

    Edit:

    After roaming through google, I think I have found the reason why I couldnt install - it may be that the CD is actually copy protected, so that it wont read?? Anybody know whether this is true?

    Hey Andrewnewyen

    Yah thats what I was afraid off, I suppose Apple care and the "specialist" didnt know about this

    I booked an appointment to see a genius this coming Saturday hopfully he will let me "borrow" their superdrive and install vista haha if not than I suppose I might have to give in and buy the superdrive or just stick with iWork which i literally hate using! as the only reason why i want vista is because of Office as I dont want to spend $200 on office 2008 for Mac esp not after spening $2100 on the Air
